First Presbyterian Church is a loving, caring, Christian church family. As a family of Jesus Christ, we cherish and embrace the joy of serving our Lord.  Are you looking for a new church family or never been a part of a church family before?  Come and discover what God has to offer at FPC.

WORKING TOGETHER IN MINISTRY

​As a family of faith, we work together to share our faith and communicate the love and joy of being a follower of Christ. We send relief packages to our soldiers overseas, sharing our gratitude and love for their great effort and sacrifice.  We participate in BackPack Pals, which is a ministry that provides food to elementary school children to eat on the weekends when they are not in school.  We pray for those who are not members of our church, because we are all members of God's family.  We participate in community events like the Lenten, Easter sunrise, and Thanksgiving services.  We are always looking for God calling us in new directions.

GROWING OUR FAITH

​At FPC, we grow our faith through traditional events like worship and Sunday school, as well as with study and fellowship in programs and classes designed to encourage participation from all ages.

We participate in Bible studies throughout the year, which includes reading from the Bible and study manual to prepare for the weekly group meeting filled with learning, reflection, eating, and laughter.

The Presbyterian Women are very active at FPC with times of fellowship, community and church celebrations, Bible Study, Lunch Bunch and more.  Visit our Women in Faith page to learn more.

Our Men's Group meets for fellowship and study on both the first and third Tuesdays of the month at 6 p.m.  Men are welcome to come to both gatherings, or to those that best fit their schedule.  Learn more by visiting our Men in Faith page.

We offer fellowship, worship, and service opportunities for families and you including Sunday School, “What’s Up Wednesdays” - a time for children ages 4-6th, and weekly Youth Group for grades 7th – 12th.  Learn more by visiting our Family Life & Youth page.

PLEASE VISIT

​Do not be surprised when you are warmly greeted as you enter the doors of FPC, where you'll find hope, encouragement, the peace of Christ, along with many faith-based fellowship and service opportunities.

Just like a favorite pair of shoes, you'll soon find it is a good fit in the family of God.  With all of us working with God, we will continue to do amazing things for God’s people, and in so doing serve our Lord and Savior, with energy and enthusiasm. See you soon!
