The Church Council would like to thank all of you who attended the Annual meeting last Sunday and also, to thank you for those fantastic desserts. As our moderator, Jane Hodge, mentioned, it takes many hands to run First Church. The Council is asking the congregation to consider and attend a committee meeting. This is an excellent opportunity to familiarize yourself with each committee, and their responsibilities, ask questions, so you can make an informed decision on which committee is the best fit for you to volunteer on. It is essential that we all work together to make our Church First Church the Beacon of the Pembroke Community. Below you will find a list of March s meetings. Thank you for your time, The Church Council




Red Cross Blood Drive and Bake Sale April 15, 2023


First Church is supporting a blood drive on April 15, 2023, from 9:00 2:00 pm in honor of Joey Birolini & Billie Hickey. Both Joey and Billie were outstanding young men who positively impacted everyone; around them. Both young men were a huge part of the Pembroke Community. Please keep both families in your prayers. Once again, we are looking for bakers to supply us with baked goods to sell that day. The Event Committee would like to thank the members of First Church for your continued support. Last year s Bake Sales were a tremendous success for First Church. Thanks to the generosity of all of you. We could not have done it without all of you!
