Edna Asknes extends a very special "thank you" to all who participated in the Garden Parties during the summer. Whether you hosted, attended, helped with the set-up/clean-up, it wouldn't have been the same without you. We had another great summer of community building and look forward to the Garden Parties of 2011!

Inquirers Class starting soon.
If you have been thinking about learning more about First Church, take part in the September Inquirers Class. We will be gathering three times at the Manse (128 Henry Street, beside the church) to reflect together on the meaning of faith and life and First Church.
This class will likely be the last opportunity to join before the congregation elects a new Senior Pastor some time this fall. (Only members of FPC are eligible to vote when the congregation calls a pastor.) The meetings will take place on the following Saturdays:
Sept. 11 @ 9 a.m., Sept. 18 @ 11 a.m., and Sept. 25 @ 9 a.m. Those from the class who decide to join the church will do so on October 3.
To take part, please contact Paul Austin at firstname.lastname@example.org or Peggy Slowik at email@example.com or (917) 400-6589.
(Church members who want refreshment in matters of faith and church are also welcome.
