Welcome to Worship

May 9, 2021

We’re so glad you’re here. Whether you are joining us in-person or online we are excited to spend the morning with you.

“As I prepare to retire from my position as Lead Pastor at First Friends on May 30, I want my last sermons to be like pastoral letters to our church. Each week I will be sharing unique insights I’ve learned in my 37 years of ministry at First Friends, and what I believe God wants me to call the church to be in the future. I hope you’ll join me for some of my most important messages.” -Pastor Stan
