Note from Presley Kinne, Custodian

I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to everyone for not just welcoming me with open arms, but also for giving me the chance to meet and know you all. As some of you may have heard June 28th will be my last day at the church, some family issues have drawn me back to Wisconsin to start the next chapter in my life. So again, I want to say thank you to you all,, and I'll be back on the future to visit, most likely in the winter months. and as always, Go Pack Go. Presley

Come Sunday: Film Viewing and Discussion Hosted by First Church UCC and Church of the Beatitudes 

Come join us for a special viewing of "Come Sunday", followed by a lively Civil Dialogue concerning the concept of "universal salvation" and other relative issues addressed by this brilliant and poignant film! 

The film centers on what happens when Bishop click here. Carlton Pearson's desire to question established rules clashes with the rigidity of organized belief. Chiwetel Ejiofor is tremendous in this drama of a real-life Pentecostal minister who challenged his church’s orthodoxy.

Dialogue will follow and be facilitated by Rev. Dr. Toni Minear, Rev. James Pennington and Redeem Zakari. First Church UCC Phoenix

Faith in Action will begin using our newly constructed beautiful, portable Photo Board early in September. We would like to have photos that depict who we are and what we do.

It will be very welcoming and informative for our visitors and newcomers. As members, it will be fun to see the photos as they change from time to time. Please bring your pictures before August 15th if possible.

This will allow Faith in Action members the time to sort, group, label and attach to the Photo Board. If your pictures are on a memory card or disc, please have them printed at Walgreens or print them yourself using photo paper that doesn’t smear (glossy is preferred but not mandatory).

The 4x6 size is the preferred size if that works for you. The photos can be given to any FIA members. We will also be happy to answer any questions you may have. Your contribution of photos will be greatly appreciated.


FIA members are: Dee Sullivan, Peggy Shively, Nancy Klatt, Kris Nyman, Susan Torres, Dean Levene, & Phil Johnson

Call for Ushers

Dear friends,
We are in desperate need for new ushers, we would like our new members to participate as it's a great way to get involved with the church as well as get to know everyone better.
Ushers mainly greet people and hand out bulletins. They help people find restrooms, other rooms, etc.  They take up the collection and serve communion.  After the service, ushers go through the aisles and pick up items left and used bulletins, etc. If you are interested please email Joyce Glazner at
