Welcome to Old First Church

Where tradition and the future meet.

A message from our pastor.


Now that we have celebrated Easter we must ask ourselves, “What’s next?” For Easter is not the culmination of our faith but its beginning. The Resurrection story demands that we do not go on living as we would like to do. It demands that we get up and do something about the world where we live.  

Resurrection demands that we live our faith rather than giving it only lip service. Resurrection demands that children do not live in poverty, that we treat everyone with respect and dignity, and that we continue the work of Jesus in this world.

Resurrection is an experience of living in faith and living faithfully. Resurrection is sharing the Gospel, that is, God’s good news to the world that things do not have to be as they are. Resurrection is our promise from God that through living faithfully we can create a realm of justice and mercy, a realm where peace and reconciliation between all can reign.

He has told you, O mortal, what is good;

and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice,

to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?"
