First Church holds Confirmation Services each spring. Teens who have completed the Covenant Classes in ninth grade are invited to own the church covenant and be received into the membership of the church.
Friends and visitors are always welcome at First Church. If you would like to better understand what it means to be a Congregationalist or are interested in joining our congregation, you are encouraged to participate in one of several New Member classes held throughout the year.
New Member Classes are scheduled on Sundays, immediately follow the 10 AM worship service, and last approx. 90 minutes. We include lunch and an option for child-care if needed.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on the next class.
First Church offers a lovely setting accommodating small intimate gatherings as well as large ceremonies. Weddings booked here at First Church include one of our ministers, an organist, wedding hostess and custodian. The upstairs parlor doubles as a comfortable dressing area with full length mirror and adequate room for the women in the wedding party.
Interested couples are asked to meet with one of our ministers of First Church to discuss plans for the wedding day and ceremony.
The ministers of First Church are here to provide prayer, counsel and supportive care to families experiencing the death of a loved one.
We will assist you, at this difficult time, in providing family and friends with a meaningful and prayerful funeral service at the church, funeral home or graveside. Or, if you prefer, we will provide a memorial service at the church following private interment.
Please call First Church upon the death of a family member or loved one, either immediately before or following your call to the mortuary. If you get the after-hours' recording, please do not hesitate to call the emergency number, 414-258-7378. One of the ministers of First Church will call you back as soon as possible.
If the service is held at First Church, the minister will coordinate availability of the Nave, Chapel, and/or other rooms for the service. We can assist, as requested or desired, in selecting the biblical readings, hymns, music, and pastoral message. Our staff will help you plan the service and if desired, a reception following the service in either the 2nd floor Social Hall or the 1st floor Friendship Lounge. In addition, we provide a quiet place for the family to meet up to one hour prior to the service.
We encourage you to obtain a copy of the booklet titled If I Should Die... and a form for detailing one's funeral preferences from the First Church office. The completed forms are kept on file in the church office and will help your family understand your wishes upon the event of your death.
Please call the office for information on arranging a funeral or memorial service.
