First Church has several annual events that are worth noting on your calendar.
Fall Camping Weekend
Each fall, everyone is invited to go camping on a Friday and Saturday night at a local campground. Contact Herm Witte to reserve a site. The cost is around $25 per night or you can pitch a tent on someone else's site. Many poeple also just visit during the day on Saturday.
Every other year, in the fall, we have an all-Church Picnic in a local park after the morning worship service.
Meandering Mid-Winter Meal
This is progressive dinner that is held each winter on a Saturday night. This event starts with appetizers served at church, soup and salad served at someone's house, the main course at another house, and dessert served back at church.
Each spring the church has a Volleyball Tournament that pits the households and youth groups against each other in friendly competition. The tournament is a fundraiser for the Christian school tuition assistance fund and is held at the Christian High School Gym on a Saturday afternoon.
Each year we have a bowling tournament complete with pledges, door-prizes and friendly competition. This is also fundraiser for the Christian school tuition assistance fund.
Men's Biking Group
Each Saturday morning a group of men goes biking at 8:00 am at various locations weather permitting. In the fall there is also an invitation extended to the men of First Church to go up to a cabin on Lake Michigan and spend some significant time biking and getting to know each other. For more information on either of these opportunities, contact the church office.
