Our Vision

At First  Presbyterian Church we invite people to follow Jesus Christ in a community where we EXALT God in worship, EMBRACE one another in love, ENCOURAGE spiritual growth, and EQUIP every person for ministry in the Church and world.

An Atmosphere of Acceptance – Come as you are, make friends and journey together in a relaxed no pressure loving environment.

  • Practical Meaningful Messages – Our pastor expresses the truth found in Scripture in a fresh, credible way. You’ll hear practical messages from the Bible that relate to the problems and pressures we all face.

  • A Vibrant Adult Education Program – We offer a number of programs to provide for your spiritual growth from Life Academy and Small Groups to in-depth study of the Bible and Theology.

Stories of Faith
Our life is enriched by the stories of faith from those who have walked before us. Dr. Paul Aijian inspires us as we hear his perspective on faith and fellowhsip. Let his story speak to your heart and life!



The Adult Ed Committee and Patrick Ramnarine’s brother, Cecil, seek to promote and educate the youth in the valley in the rich peacemaking tradition introduced and modeled by Jesus.  Cecil has developed a wonderful curriculum which he would ask us to bring to the attention of the local schools.   more information – click here
