Ministry takes many forms, from the preaching of the Gospel, to visiting the sick, to feeding the hungry, to teaching the children, to bringing others to the Lord through music of praise and worship. First U.C.C. has many forms of ministry both within the church walls and outside into the community and world.
Our Music Ministry, led by Sheila Cooke our organist and music director, ministers to all of us by enhancing our worship as we lift our voices together or listen as our spirits soar along with the music. We have several choirs which are open to anyone who would like to join; Senior Choir, Praise Choir, Adult Bell Choir and Youth Bell Choir. We also assemble a Christmas Orchestra to glorify our Savior on Christmas Eve. Read more about out Music Ministry....
First UCC has a number of outreach ministries to serve our local community and reach those around the world through our Christian Witness Committee who oversees our mission giving. We have yearly fundraising for Bethany Children's Home, Phoebe Home, ProJeCt of Easton and many other local and international helping agencies.
First UCC held it's first "Community Connection" day in May of 2010. This day-long event brought over 20 of our local non-profit, Northampton County and Pennsylvania assistance agencies together to reach out into our community to inform and help them start processes to get the help and assistance they need to make their families healthier, safer and more stable. We are planning to make this an annual event to bring our community together and help bridge the gap for families who are struggling to meet their needs.
We have links to a number of our local helping agencies. If you need assistance please go to our "Local Helping Agency Links" page.
