New Minister Brings Excitement and Energy to First Church

Love's Passion Ignites at First Church
Rev. Julia Burkey brought flames into our sanctuary on Sunday! Not the fire and brimstone kind of flames -- that's not our jam at First Church. During her sermon Rev. Julia led a fire ritual, using gun cotton with help from student and faculty of the Wesleyan Chemistry Department, and asked, "What makes your chest burn and your heart ignite with passion for love and justice?" 

During Second Hour at 11:15 after service, we then had a powerful and sacred conversation about the School-to Prison Pipeline, with NCAAP President and members, and ACLU Executive Director. 

Community Conversation on Tuesday, 9/17

Join First Church and the Middlesex NAACP for a follow up community wide conversation and call to action, on September 17th at 6:30 it the First Church Sanctuary at 190 Court Street.
