A presence in the world: Our faith is active and we work in Pittsfield with Habitat for Humanity building homes for our neighbors in need as well as the Christian Center making certain no one goes hungry. We are connected with the Pittsfield Area Council of Congregations to support interfaith dialogue and expanding compassion in our town. We are also one of the founding congregations in the faith-based justice organizing project in the Berkshires: Berkshire Organizing Project. We have partnered with the Berkshire Environmental Action Team to help clean up the Housatonic River, served as a charter member of the Central Berkshire Habitat for Humanity and support the work of the LGBTQ community. First Church also cooperates with the Vietnam Vets to clean and care for the Vietnam Veterans Memorial on Park Square.
