You do not have to be a Presbyterian, or a formal church member, to attend worship with our church family. We welcome all who are searching for their spiritual paths, as well as those established in their faith. We are an inclusive church family that accepts all, regardless of their faith background, race, gender, sexual orientation, or financial status.
If You Come to Sunday Morning Worship
We have resumed in-person Sunday worship services in the Sanctuary at 8:00am and 10:30am. Please see our covid protocols on the last page of our reopening brochure.
We continue to live-stream our 10:30am service on our Facebook page.
Church services last about an hour. After the online worship service, we invite you to join us for a ‘Virtual Coffee Hour’ on Zoom. Details are provided through our email list. There is also an in-person fellowship time through room 7 and outdoors in our tent.
Families are the cornerstones and building blocks of a strong congregation. All children are welcome in our Sunday School and in our services. We have active youth groups for middle school and high school youth, who meet for activities of fellowship as well as community outreach. Adults are invited to our regular adult education (“Faith4Life”) classes. Our nursery is available for the youngest children, if desired.
We welcome you, regardless of who you are, where you come from, or your religious background. If you come to worship with us, you’ll experience a service that blends traditional and contemporary styles of worship. We pray, hear sermons, sing hymns, and enjoy music by our choir, bell choir, and soloists. We use technology to enhance our worship experience, displaying videos and pictures and occasionally even hearing sermons from abroad via Skype and the Internet. Our sanctuary space is handicapped accessible and open to all. We invite you to come as you are. We do not expect formal attire. Jeans and sneakers are as welcome as suits and ties.
We have Communion, typically once a month on the first Sunday of the month.

Church Organization in a Nutshell
Lay leadership at the First Presbyterian Church is comprised of the Session and Deacons, organized according to the Constitution of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). The Session sets policy for and makes major decisions about the church. The Deacons care for the congregation and community.
The smooth functioning of the church and its mission is largely accomplished by a number of commissions, managed by enthusiastic and creative members of the congregation who contribute their time and talent to do God’s work in our time and place.
We invite you to join in ministry with us. Come to worship, get to know us, and if you are interested, we invite you to consider joining as a church member.
