“Speaking the truth in love, we must grow up in every way into Christ.”  Ephesians 4: 15

 

First Presbyterian Church offers many ways to grow—spiritually, physically, mentally, and socially. First Presbyterian addresses all aspects of life, and we celebrate the growth and major life events for each individual, each family, and the community as a whole.

  

Grow Socially

So many activities at First Presbyterian revolve around community-building. Small groups and large groups, fun groups and serious groups, people get together to achieve something or just to see one another and in the process every person grows a little. There are many opportunities to get out of the house, or even stay at home and have others come over!

Grow Mentally

Many programs at First Presbyterian will help you grow mentally. Book groups and Bible study, teaching children and attending study courses—there are opportunities to expand your knowledge and, perhaps more importantly, your ways of thinking.

Grow Spiritually

By participating in the community at First Presbyterian you will find yourself growing spiritually. From small groups such as the Women's Ministry and the Men's Fellowship, to large-group activities such as the All-Church Retreat, there are opportunities to tell your story of your own spiritual path while hearing—and being inspired by—the stories of others.

Grow Physically

Perhaps you are looking for a place where you can maintain your physical strength and endurance. There are things to be done and events happening around the church that can contribute to your physical well-being, whether it be working in our garden or helping out at the Food Pantry, leading a Sunday School class or activities at the All-Church Retreat, 12-Step programs hosted in our building, or a small group getting together for morning walks.

Help us extend the communion table to the fellowship table. We will eat and drink whatever items you bring to share with our community. We are choosing to spend the church’s resources on feeding the truly hungry, visiting the imprisoned, and sharing the good news with those who need to hear God’s love and grace. Thank you for supporting our mission and for bringing something healthy to share on Sundays as you feel led and are able.
