Are you new to the neighborhood? Are you missing something in your experience of faith? We welcome all to First Presbyterian Church.
What will my experience be like?
You will be welcomed by our greeters as you come in. You can ask them any question you might have. They will show you to the sanctuary, and our ushers will give you a bulletin. The bulletin has the order of worship. Any words you are to say are in bold. We sing, pray, listen to a sermon, and are blessed when we leave. Services are one hour in length. After services, you are invited to our fellowship hour. We have Sunday School for children, a Nursery for infants, and many activities during the week.hide
What about my kids?
We have Sunday School that begins at 9:15 and ends at 10:15 a.m. We also have a nursery that is open during worship. Our worship service features a special time for children to talk with the pastor. We also have a children's choir and children's programs throughout the year.
Who are we?
We are a multi-generational church with wonderfully wise seniors and frequently vocal babies, who share in our worship services. We will be 125 years old in 2017, and we love to sing.
We are biblically oriented, with Sunday school for all ages and a pastor who uses the history of the Old Testament and the parables and stories of Jesus' journey to help us embrace the kingdom of God, here on earth.
We are mission-bound, with youth and adults participating in work trips from New Orleans to Nicaragua, and we help support missions in Africa through our denomination.
We share space in our church with a Hispanic congregation, a preschool, and a family therapy practice. Our service in the community includes participating in food pantries, after school tutoring, and sewing for children in the school district.
First Presbyterian is a social justice church, working to help immigrants, gays, people of different faiths, and others in need of support and prayers.
