First Presbyterian

A community cornerstone in Christ since 1850.

"For I was hungry and you gave me food,

I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink,

I was a stranger and you welcomed me,

I was naked and you gave me clothing,

I was sick and you took care of me,

I was in prison and you visited me."

Matthew 25:35-36 NRSV


​​The Family Life Center also serves as a donation collection site for FPC ministries,

including items needed for local food banks, school supplies, international discipleship missions,

and aging outreach ministries.
