On April 14 (Palm Sunday) Minister of Art & Communication Phil Porter will be ordained. The service will take place at 3 pm in the Sanctuary. Expect an artful celebration!
On Saturday, March 2, the Bay Association of the Northern California Nevada Conference of the United Church of Christ held an Ecclesiastical Council and approved Phil Porter for ordination. Phil has been a Commissioned Minister at First Church for twenty years. He first joined the church in 1977.
