All in-person church functions are currently postponed. The church spent its earliest years gathering exclusively in homes, and this creates an opportunity for us to do the same for a brief period. During this pandemic, the church staff and leadership are working diligently to facilitate a dispersed Sunday morning worship, maintain a sense of community, offer spiritual and pastoral care, and facilitate opportunities for action.
The church staff is working remotely and the church office is closed, but you are welcome to reach out to any of the church staff via email. Voice mail on the office phone (616-772-9129) will be transferred to staff members' email, and we have installed a new drop box for offering envelopes at the Central Avenue entrance.
As a church we have launched a Reentry Task Force (composed of staff, consistory, and other leaders from First) with the goal of figuring out how we can safely, appropriately, and quickly reopen the facility. There are many factors at play and we would love your prayer as we weigh how we can re-engage quickly and safely.
