"1K Saturday"

It is a privilege to have a building that plays host to so many wonderful ministries and programs. “1K Saturdays” are periodic service days in which we give half a day to clean and provide light maintenance of our facility, saving the church approximately $1,000 (or “1K”) each half day of service. All you need to do is show up and all materials will be provided. Thank you!

Tour of First Covenant

Are you curious about what’s behind the doors in this 140+ year-old building? Ever wondered how the spaces of this building were used by congregants in the past? After the service, grab a cup of coffee in the foyer and then come back to the sanctuary for an informal tour of First Covenant led by Pastor Dan.
