Young Adult Newsletter

Potlucks continuing weekly

Potlucks have begun! Thank you to everyone who has come to share your food and your time. 


You are invited to join us weekly at 5:30 p.m. at the church in Glenna Hall. Bring a dish to share and BYO water bottle. Plates and plasticware will be provided. No need to register. Come as you are and come as you are able.


Please email Kelsey if you'd like to coordinate dishes to bring. And remember that if cooking is not your favorite hobby, the Whole Foods hot bar is right across the street. :)

Help sort for SNAPGap this Sunday

First Church is hosting October's collection for SNAPGap, an Interfaith Action program that collects toiletries and other essentials that are not covered by the SNAP program to be distributed to people at the monthly ProduceMobile food distribution event.


We need your help sorting donated items after church during Fellowship Time this Sunday, October 9. No need to register, just show up and start sorting!
