Religious Education Announcements

27 March 2017

OWL (Our Whole Lives)

Our award-winning comprehensive sexual education program will begin for first and second graders this Sunday at the 11am service and continuing through May 28. One parent or guardian will need to attend this class with his/her child. A suggested donation of $25 is requested to cover the basic costs of teaching this class.

Child Dedication Sunday, April 9, 9am & 11am services

On this Sunday, we will gather as a congregation to confirm our dedication to the youngest members of our First Church community. This event is for infants, but if you have other children who have not been dedicated, feel free to request their inclusion in this Service. You’ll need to complete a form, which is available in the Infant/Toddler Room (Room 109) by this Sunday April 2, and return to Lissa Lander or Julie Miller. You may also send an e-mail to with the following information:

  • Full name of child
  • Names of parents or guardians
  • Date & place of birth
  • Names of siblings
  • How long you have been a member or friend of First Church
  • A sentence or two about your child’s personality
  • Please indicate if you would like to attend the 9am or the 11am service.

Collecting for Refugees

We are teaming up with the IRC to collect gently-used games, toys and NEW stuffed animals for the refugee children who have come to Salt Lake City in recent months. These items are being accepted now through Easter Sunday. There is a box outside the Little Chapel for donations. A “mystery” Easter Egg Hunt is also scheduled on this date (April 16) at our 11am Service for the youngest members of our community.
