Cooking it up for Justice
The Cooking It Up for Justice group gathers monthly to cook and fellowship, then to serve dinner and visit the guests at our Blaine Center Men's Shelter. Do you like to cook? If so, you’ll love cooking for a cause. Join us and make a difference by your food and your joyful presence. Cooking it Up for Justice is led by Nancy Sherertz and meets on the 3rd Thursday of every month from 6-8 p.m. at the Blaine Center Men's Shelter (150 Denny Way--below the church parking garage).
Pub Theology
Pub Theology is a gathering of minds, where challenging questions and meaningful discussion are always on tap. It is a space to explore the wisdom each of us brings to the table as we speak candidly about faith, God, and culture. Sign up for the email list to get info about upcoming Pub Theology sessions.

Pax Christi Yoga
Music, themes, and scripture passages that use yoga techniques in a Christian setting. Bring a blanket and wear yoga-appropriate clothing. If you don’t have mats we have extras!

Dinners for 7
If you are looking for an informal social group that’s small enough to know one another really well, look no further! Dinners for “7” groups meet in one another’s homes or at a restaurant on a schedule chosen by each group. Each group has about 7-10 people; individuals and couples are welcome! Existing dinner groups will continue to meet with their group of 7-10. Sign up to join a new dinner group.

How does your faith inform your life? We discuss books, videos, current events and occasionally invite outside leaders to help us examine and share our faith, our lives and the life of our community. Curriculum is set by the class working together to identify resources and topics of interest. The class is a discussion format that encourages open inquiry and spiritual exploration. It is open to everyone and meets each week–drop-in anytime and join our lively conversation–Sunday mornings 9 a.m. at First Church in Room 301. (Sunday School takes a break on holiday weekends and during the summer.)

The First Church Parents’ Group welcomes parents to join in community and support as we explore our convictions, struggles, and successes raising our children. We are a discussion oriented group and welcome any parent interested in sharing their experiences. We help to nourish each others souls as we openly discuss our lives as parents and as Christians. Please join us and deepen and extend our community with your presence! The Parents’ Group meets on Sunday mornings from 9-10 a.m., during the children and youth Sunday School hour at First Church in Room 302.
