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.
