Human Wisdom Contrasted with God’s Wisdom

by Reverend Miriam Theodore


Be Thoughtful, Be Silent, Be Reverent for this the House of the Lord.

Before the Service, Speak to God:

During the Service, let God Speak to you,

After the Service, speak to one another kindly.


The Steeple of First Church is lit June 08 15, 2024,

in honor of Brian M. Holland.


Our hearts ache with the absence of Brian, a beloved husband to Jean, a cherished father to his daughters and son, a doting grandfather, and a dear friend to many. His light, which once brightened our lives, continues to shine in our memories. Though he has left this world, his memory remains vivid and deeply missed. Until we meet again, Brian, we love you!
