We look up to the Light and reach out in faith


What does it mean to be “inSPIREd!”?


Here at First Reformed Church, United Church of Christ, “inSPIREd!”is a celebration and a budding movement:

On Saturday, October 28, 2017, 6:30 to 7:30 p.m., we will have a special event: “Lighting the Spire!” The light in the steeple below the spire is weak and the spire itself has never been lit. We will brighten the light of the steeple and bring new light to the spire. “Lighting the Spire” will kick-off our celebration of the 500th anniversary of Reformation Day!

An “inSPIREd!” movement is beginning to grow: to bring more light to a world that can feel dark beyond words. The Light of Christ illuminates our hearts, disperses the darkness, and companions us in the Way of Christ. Reflecting that powerful Christ Light, may our “Lighting of the Spire” shine even brighter than before. We look up to the Light and reach out in faith!

“inSPIREd!” is meant to be just the beginning of a new chapter in the life of our church. This new chapter brings before us new opportunities to affirm and share our gifts of creativity, playfulness, friendship, joy, and a welcoming spirit.  If you would like to join in our “inSPIREd!” celebration and movement, you are welcome here!
