Worship Service
Our service is similar in its overall structure to most church services. We have a choir, an offertory, and a call to worship. The minister usually delivers a 20 minute sermon.  We sing hymns, share happy and sad events with one another, and announce upcoming events in the life of the congregation.  Details

Choir
The First Jefferson choir has regular rehearsals each week.  We invite the participation of regular and new members. Choir membership is a service to the church in helping provide musical leadership in our services. We help lead the hymns, provide choral responses, and sing an offertory anthem on most Sundays.  We normally do two choral concerts each year, one near Christmas, and one in the spring. We also provide music for special celebrations including weddings and memorial services. In addition, we believe we have a special fellowship, being one of the oldest covenant groups in the church. Come join us. Contact Roy Redman.  Details

The Quilters
The First Jefferson Quilters meet weekly on Tuesdays from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. in Jaggers Parlor. Our mission is to make quilts and we welcome all who want to make quilts with us. We have a long history at our church of producing quilts for fundraising, outside charities, and keeping people and buildings warm. We have recently finished two quilts - one to raffle at our church service auction and one to raffle for the benefit of the Eastside Ministries. Please consider joining us, regardless of your quilting skills or experience. Contact Mary Kirwin.
