Mission Statement

First Presbyterian Church is a welcoming community of faith where Jesus Christ transforms lives:  through worship, as we praise and glorify God; through outreach, as we embody God’s love in service to the world; through education, as we listen for God’s Word; through giving, as we express gratitude to God; through caring, as we love and care for one another; through fellowship, as we share our lives and faith together.
