Save the Date: Phil Porter's Ordination

Sun, Apr 14, 2019

Pending the completion of a few final administrative steps, please save the date of April 14 (Palm Sunday) for the ordination of Minister of Art & Communication Phil Porter. 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.

Here is Phil's Ordination Paper which he wrote as part of the process.
