About Us

Most people think First Presbyterian is a very pretty church, although we’re not terribly “flash and sparkle” (Presbyterians tend not to be that way, after all). We’re more like a slow smile or a warm hug.

 

First Presbyterian isn't the biggest church in town. Or the smallest. We are just big enough to have a variety of things to involve you. And just small enough to know each other by name. We get to know each other's kids and dogs and visiting grandchildren and who's on vacation and who's been sick and who's had a birthday.

 

Our ministers strive to preach and serve with thoughtfulness and inspiration. Members of the congregation and staff take turns in serving each other and the community, too—both in and out of church. Once a year, our youth take the helm and create and conduct an entire service with a wisdom and insight that  humbles and delights our hearts, and fills us with confidence for the future.

 

Our building and grounds are used to serve people on any number of occasions—both the common and the unexpected, in crisis as well as celebration, within the church family and reaching out.

 

Worship. Weekday preschool. Weddings. Funerals. Evacuations. People seeking help. People seeking to give help. Wednesday night suppers. Baptisms. Vacation Bible School. Music programs. Mission work. Boy Scouts. Girl Scouts. Presbyterian Women. Stephen Ministry. Basketball games. Sunday School for everyone.
