Listening Tours


Our new senior pastor, Rev. Dr. Will Cotton, wants to hear from us! At his request, listening tours have been held in July and August. These listening tour events have been held in member homes, and are opportunities for Will to meet with small groups and listen. It is not a time for Will to answer questions or provide comments. He is there to meet people and to listen and learn about our church DNA, our concerns and dreams, and our culture here at First Church and in our community. These are the three questions he would like for you to consider in the listening sessions:

  1. What is the one thing that I – as your new pastor – need to know about this congregation?
  2. What is one way that we are going to reach new people in this area?
  3. What is one dream that you have for First Church?

Eighteen sessions (sixteen people max/session) were originally scheduled, having begun on July 11.  There is one session remaining!

The last session will be:

  • Wednesday, August 31, 9:30 am – Shevawn Walzell, host
