If you are curious and have come to see...

If you are weary and have come to rest...

If you are grateful and have come to give thanks…

If you are wounded and have come seeking solace...
If you are looking for a community engaged in faith and ministry...






The congregation of First Presbyterian Church welcomes you. Wherever you are on your faith journey, we are glad that your path has brought you to this place.


We are a diverse community, brought together by Christ and open to God's continuing renewal and transformation. We are a community of faith growing and living as disciples of the living God, revealed to us in Jesus Christ. We respond to God's love and mercy in our lives through actions of grace, generosity and love in service to others.
