First Friends

For older adults retired and not so retired!

First Friends is our church’s vibrant ministry for older adults. Activities planned target our almost retired, just retired, and considerably retired members and friends. The ministry goal for First Friends is “to focus on the spiritual and social needs of our senior adult members, and to connect the senior adults with one another and with the church family for fellowship, service and personal growth.” We recognize that older adults approach the later years in a variety of ways, and we seek to be sensitive to the broad range of activities that might be appropriate in this ministry.

Upcoming Events


Join your First Friends on the church lawn on Fridays at 5 p.m. for a rousing game of croquet. Bring water bottles and maybe a chair. You may want to come early to spend time in the Sanctuary. Contact Brenda Geise at for more information.

Book Club

Our own Etta Wilson will be our leader for the August selection for the First Friends’ Book Club, discussing The Guest Book by Sarah Blake. This novel reveals a multi-generational family, 1930’s to present day; its past mistakes and betrayals, secrets, and truths. It examines not just a privileged family but a privileged America. This will be via Zoom, 2:00 p.m., Thursday, August 27. To join the book club, contact Brenda Geise at
