Creative things are happening at First Church in spite of the pandemic. We have received a generous grant to explore our roles as stewards of Creation. We’re blending, art, science, jazz and theological reflection into a unique four-part series beginning with affirming the blessing and wonder of God’s Creation. Watch our first webinar below—a virtual gathering of folks from north, south, east and west.

Join us on a creative journey as we explore the blessings of this world
given to us in trust by our Creator.

Wild blessings!


Our guest presenters for our first webinar:

Valerie Tutson is an international storyteller who spins yarns from world cultures, Black traditions, and sacred scriptures. Her engaging stories touch the hearts and imaginations of children and adults at regional and national events in ecumenical and interfaith settings.

Jean Ponzi is an ecological advocate blending teaching, sustainability coaching, writing, public speaking and storytelling with outbursts of song. “Green Jean’s” weekly podcast, Earthworms on KDHX St. Louis, offers creative ways to live well, sustainably, with our fellow Earth relations
