Here at First Church we are more that just a group of believers who come together for worship. We are a family, bound together in Jesus Christ.
We invite you to participate in our ministries and programs, all of which strive to bring us together in true fellowship, strengthen our faith, further the Kingdom, and give glory to God.

We call ourself:

Christian because we belong to Jesus Christ and want to be his followers.
We recognize as fellow-Christians all people who accept the teachings of the Bible as summarized in the Apostle’s Creed.
Reformed because we're part of that historic branch of the Christian church that follows the teachings of 16th-century reformer John Calvin, who struggled to return Christianity to its biblical roots.
Church because God has called us to be a fellowship of his people in the world.
We often call ourselves "the First CRC of Chatham" for short.



Whew…..that was a scorcher the last few days. Thank the Lord for shade trees, a nice breeze and of course, air conditioning. Remember Jonah and the shade plant, that God caused to grow up overnight, that protected him as he sat, waited and watched to see what God would do to that wicked city of Nineveh? Remember how angry he was when the plant died? As we enjoy the comforts that God has given us, let us not sit, watch and wait, but rather look for opportunities to share the love of God and tell others about freedom in Jesus Christ………while there is still time to do so.
