what DO I wear?

You are welcome to attend any of our events dressed as you feel most comfortable.  Some wear dresses and suits while others wear t-shirts and jeans.  All we ask is that you wear SOMETHING!

Welcome Home!

First Church worships weekly on Sunday morning at 10:30 am in our beautiful and historic sanctuary located in downtown Forest City, NC for a progressively-minded and inclusive traditional worship service.

Our music is often the highlight of our service: Hymns are accompanied by a full choir and one of the largest pipe organs in the region.  The music ministry at First Church adds to the worship experience and really needs to be experienced to be believed.
