The Book Club meets in the Wesley Library at 2:00 pm on the fourth Monday of each month, except December.  We choose a wide variety of books from many different genres, based on recommendations from our participants.  Check out our page for upcoming selections and discussion dates. EVERYONE is welcome! More Info

Interfaith Meditation Group

Fridays at 11am in the Wesley Library/Chapel. This weekly gathering offers quiet sitting followed by conversation (if desired) and is led by Leroy Perkins,PhD. Everyone welcome!

Men’s Breakfast Group

We meet on the third Saturday of each month, at 8am at Country Waffles Restaurant– located at 2300 Athens Ave. in Redding.  If you are new to first Church, then this is a great way to meet people in our church and to get to know each other in a more personal way– and also to make lasting friendships!  If you would like to be added to the Men’s Group email list, or to find out more information, contact the church office.

Singles Talking to Singles

A great opportunity for singles to have fun, good conversation, and fellowship with other singles. More Info

Small Group Ministry

First Church is excited to offer a church-wide Small Group Ministry that focuses on intentional faith development and deeper relationships within the church.  These weekly small groups meet on different days of the week and on Sundays — making it very easy to participate.  Some of our groups offer more traditional Bible Studies while others follow the Sermon series or other current curriculum.  By meeting weekly, each group offers the opportunity to connect with others on a deeper level as well as a place to grow in our faith together.  These groups are set up to allow people to join at any time!
