Due to COVID-19, our worship services look a little different right now. Current worship opportunities are listed first, followed by information on our usual worship services.
After months of worshipping together remotely, the session, along with the Worship and Music Ministry, has developed a plan to safely return to in-person worship. You are invited to join us Sunday mornings at 9:00 a.m., outside the Fellowship Hall for outdoor worship. Listed below are some helpful items for your review.
- All traffic will flow around the southwest side of the church, to the back for parking and seating. Please do not drive or park near the Fellowship Hall. We will have greeters to help guide your way.
- Please bring a lawn chair to enjoy the service near your vehicle. We ask that family units stay together. Please practice social distancing guidelines, and by all means, bring and wear your masks.
- You may enjoy the service from inside your vehicle and listen on your radio by tuning into channel 90.9 on your FM dial. We also ask that you not idle your car while parked. This will allow others around you to hear better as well as not be bothered by vehicle exhaust.
- Please come dressed casually.
- Refreshments will not be served, but you should plan to bring water, coffee, or your favorite morning beverage.
- Restrooms will be available if needed. We ask that they only be used in an emergency as they must be cleaned appropriately afterwards. We would like to limit any possible exposure as well.
- This service will only be cancelled in the event of inclement weather. If we need to cancel the service, we will issue an email to the congregation Saturday evening around 6:00 p.m. Please look for that email Saturday evening. If the service is cancelled, we will still offer a Livestream of the service at 9:00 a.m. Sunday.
Worship with us at home
Church members and friends are invited to worship with us remotely using our Livestream service. Each week both services are broadcast live, so that you may worship at the same time in a different space. Additionally, an archived video will be available for viewing after the service has concluded.

A Christian marriage is a covenant through which a man and a woman are called to live out together before God their lives of discipleship. The wedding is publicly witnessed and acknowledged by the community of faith.
For information regarding a wedding at First Presbyterian Church, please email Sherry Moore, Administrative Assistant.
First Presbyterian Church offers a ministry of love and hope to all who grieve. Christians do not bear bereavement in isolation but are sustained by the power of the Holy Spirit and the community of faith. Because it is difficult under emotional stress to plan wisely, members should discuss and plan in advance arrangements necessary at the time of death.
For information on memorial and funeral services, please email John Stanley, Minister of Visitation.
The Columbarium and Garden, located outside the Sanctuary on the west end, was dedicated January 1989. For information about inurnment at First Presbyterian Church, please email the church office.

In addition to our advent services and vespers, we celebrate the birth of Christ with candlelight services on Christmas eve.
