Sunday School
​Morning Worship

Welcome! Please plan to visit First Presbyterian Church soon! Sunday School for all ages is held from 9:15a.m.-10:15a.m. Childcare (Infants-Age 4) is provided during our traditional 10:30a.m. Worship Service. Children (Kindergarten-Grade 3) participate in A Time for Young Disciples before departing the Sanctuary for Children's Church in the Chapel.

Our Worship and Music Ministry provides a variety of worship experiences that joyfully praise God through music and prayer, word and sacrament, which respect differences in Biblical interpretation consistent with our Reformed tradition.

Search Committee Update: Director of Membership Development and Communications

The Strategic Plan Implementation Committee formed the Search Committee to fill a newly created position of Director of Membership Development/Communications. This position combines two prior areas of responsibility. Our committee has been working for the last few months to design a position description reflecting the expertise and talent needed to meet the current and future needs of our church and its members as identified by our strategic plan. The description has been completed and has received approval from the Personnel Committee. The Search Committee is now ready to begin seeking qualified candidates for this position. The committee would like to ask that the congregation continue to be in prayer for this important process. We are seeking candidates who have a passion for people and can be passionate about the mission/vision of FPC. This person will help FPC reconnect with inactive members as well as help identify and engage prospective members. In addition, this person will be responsible for expanding and enhancing our communication efforts, both within FPC and in the community. Thank you for your interest, involvement and encouragement for this process.
