A Sanctuary in The City

Loving Neighbors, Building Community, Renewing Hope

Welcome. We're delighted you're here.

At First Church, we believe strongly in an open and inclusive church that extends an unqualified welcome to all. We are a wonderful array of God’s children, representing many ethnicities and cultures, sexual orientations, and economic and social backgrounds; a collection only God could assemble. We invite you to join us as together we respond to the call of God in our lives.

Welcome to First Church

Welcome. Whoever you are, wherever you are in life’s journey, you are welcome at First Church. Join us as together we respond to God’s call in our lives.

We believe every Christian has a responsibility before God to use his or her time, talent, and resources, not only in the Church, but in common life, for the service of God. We are ambassadors who carry a message wherever we go and servants of God in whatever we are doing with our lives in the world.

Lent and Easter 2021 Programs and Services


As a result of COVID-19, we have transitioned our Sunday worship service and many of our programs online via Zoom. We anticipate continuing to offer online worship and programming for some time, even as we selectively re-open our in-person offerings in line with CDC guidelines. We miss seeing you on Fifth Avenue and 12th Street and look forward to gathering together in person again. In the meantime, please note the “location” of our offerings and join us online.

As always, our staff are available by phone and email.
