Wisdom Circles

"Covenant groups (at First Church, called Wisdom Circles) are a transformational practice (based on each month's Transformational theme) through which we, with others, can discover our own underlying assumptions about reality and examine our ways of being, some of which have become so habitual that they seem to us just 'the way things are.' The practice of Small Group Ministry does ask us to suspend judgment long enough to hear respectfully the understandings of others, even those vastly different from our own." ~ Hill, Robert L., The Complete Guide to Small Group Ministry: Saving the World Ten At a Time. Boston: Skinner House Books, 2003. Read more at our Wisdom Circles page.

 

Communication is key to our community

The ministers, staff and volunteers of First Church work hard to communicate stories, share news, report events, promote social justice opportunities, and share entertainment announcements. We invite you to learn about our rich past and exciting future through our many publications.
