We invite you to visit our church and worship with us each Sunday at 9:00AM! Please check our calendar for other fellowship opportunities. Our Children's Sunday school and Adult Education classes are held at 10:30 AM. Sunday School for the youth is held upstairs. A nursery is available for childcare during Sunday school and Worship services.
Mission Statement: In gratitude to God, empowered by the Holy Spirit, we strive to discern what God is calling us to do as we serve Christ in our daily and corporate lives through worship and spiritual formation, education and discipleship, hospitality and fellowship, and mission. Putting our faith into action, we seek to create a loving community that God challenges, renews, equips, and sends out into the world to love others, to care for the sick and needy, to demonstrate kindness and mercy, and to work for justice and peace.

ADULT EDUCATION Sunday (10:30 AM):
FAITHWEAVER STUDY FOR ADULTS – The Bible study, related to the lectionary readings and paralleling the scriptural basis of the children’s classes for the same day, meets on the lower level in B-5, Multi-Purpose Room. Steve Ernst leads the study.
CURRENT EVENTS – The class is not meeting and is undergoing a revision of curriculum. Please watch for a new Christian education hour experience in the Parlor.
CHRISTIANS AND THE EARTH - “The Human Vocation”. This adult class explores the biblical and theological foundations for eco-justice and the call to Christians to be stewards of the earth that God has entrusted to our care. From the first chapter of Genesis to the last chapter of Revelation, the biblical witness consistently and frequently assumes God’s care for creation and each creature, especially the most vulnerable, both human and non-human. The class meets in Room B-9 (lower level).
ADULT EDUCATION This Monday (7:00 PM):
2 KINGS – Mark Southard continues a reading and discussion of the Second Book of Kings. The class meets on the lower level in Room B-9 (lower level).
ADULT EDUCATION Wednesday Night (7:00 PM):
SING GOOD NEWS! – This class celebrates the hymns of Easter, with special attention to the meaning of the hymn texts for the next Sunday and how they help unfold the Eastertide scripture texts. Rev. Taylor leads this exploration of the hymns we use to fulfill our commission to “Sing a new song to the Lord!” The class meets in Room B-9.
Children and Youth Sunday School and Activities at First Presbyterian Church
Children and youth are encouraged to join us each Sunday morning at 10:30am. We offer classes for nursery/preschool, elementary aged children, and middle school and high school youth. The preschool, elementary children, youth and one adult class use the Faithweaver Bible study curriculum. Each class studies the same scripture in an age appropriate way, and the adults are encouraged to engage the children and youth in conversation about their Bible lesson each week
September through May the elementary children are invited to GOLD (Giving Our Lives to God Daily) directly following our midweek meal. This is a structured time of interactive activities that are tied to the week’s Bible study lesson. Wednesday 5:30-7:00 pm
The youth group also meets at this time for fellowship, activities, and Bible study under the direction of fulltime youth director, Annette Newcomb. They are a growing youth group with a focus on building healthy and happy relationships and growing closer to God. Wednesday 5:30-8:00 pm
