On Sunday, December 9, come to further explore the possibility of First Church becoming a Welcoming, Inclusive, Supportive and Engaged (WISE) Congregation for Mental Health. Members of the Mental Health Ministry will present our proposed WISE Covenant to read and discuss together. Join in this opportunity as the church moves toward seeking official recognition in the UCC as a “WISE Congregation”.
The WISE movement was initiated by the UCC Mental Health Network, a group of volunteers who work on these issues within the United Church of Christ. Two First Church members, Robin Kempster and Kerrie Hein serve on the organization's Board of Directors.
At its meeting in August, the Church Council endorsed the move toward First Church becoming a WISE Congregation. The congregation will be invited to vote on this initiative in February of 2019.
This Learning Hour will take place in Loper Chapel at 11:45 am.
