Welcome to Old First Church

Where tradition and the future meet.

A message from our pastor.


Scripture tells us that when God created humankind God placed us in a garden. The oldest cities in the world, even those that existed in the most inhospitable places, all had gardens. Beyond growing the food we eat, we need beauty, and a garden gives us that.

There is something more than magical about watching a seed grow into a plant.  Gardens allow us to participate in God’s creation. Nurturing a garden feeds not just our bodies but our souls.

Growing a garden teaches us patience and care and a healthy respect for our limits as well. The weeds are always there for us to remove, but the most important weeds for us to remove are those that are in our hearts.

––Pastor Joyce

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?"
