Membership and Outreach
The community of Old First is continually renewed by new members. Reaching out to visitors and staying connected with new members is a primary responsibility of the Community Building Committee (CBC) – though really one involving the whole congregation.
We trust visitors will find a warm welcome from many members at the Fellowship Hour following worship. It’s a chance for all of us to share Fair Trade coffee, tea, pastries, and most of all our stories. Having received God’s welcome, we try to exhibit the hospitality so central in the scriptures to all who visit.
New members classes are held several times during the year. These classes, led by the pastor, include an overview of core Christian beliefs, information about Old First and the Presbyterian Church, discussions of participants’ questions and concerns, and opportunities to connect and serve.
We gladly accept in membership all who accept Jesus as Lord and Savior and wish to follow him.
