First Church is a hub of community and a gathering place, where people of all belief systems can feel welcome and comfortable meeting and convening to share common interests and work toward the common good. In service of that role, we regularly host community events for our neighbors and friends, including popular annual events like the Master Gardener Plant Sale (always the Thursday and Friday before Memorial Day), Allentown Art Festival (the second full weekend in June), Garden Walk Buffalo (last full weekend in July), and National Night Out (first Tuesday in August). Through the year, we also hold events like book discussions, speakers, and public forums on important cultural and political topics and civic events like voter registration drives.
