"The more I live, the more I learn. The more I learn, the more I realize, the less I know.”
― Michel Legrand, author
At First Church we believe that we grow in our faith by prayerfully asking questions about current events and God's presence in today's world. We invite you to join the conversation at one of our three adult studies.
"We enjoy Faith Link because it gives us an opportunity to discuss current issues from a Methodist perspective. The group offers lively discussion that allows for debate and differences of thought in an environment that is respectful of each person. "
