Corlis G.’s vibrant UCC high school youth group in Providence, RI, brought her to Old First for a service camp years ago. So when after college and graduate school she and husband Dave moved to Philadelphia, it was natural for her to check out Old First again. She liked what she saw and in the time she’s been attending she has been actively meeting people and getting involved.
She helped with the Christmas pageant and is interested in engaging with youth activities and with the volunteers and service camps. That’s how she got to Old First. For her the church is a pathway to service, and she wants to help others on that journey. When she’s not at the church or working as a rowing coach at a local university, Corlis enjoys spending time with Dave, their cat Ben, and friends, and she loves the outdoors.
