About Us

First Presbyterian Church

We are an historical church founded in 1814 in the Reformed tradition. Reformed indicates not so much how we do something, but what we do and why we do it.

For example in worship we follow the generally prescribed Reformed worship:

  • Praise draws us into God’s presence;
  • Confession recognizes our unworthiness;
  • Pronouncement of forgiveness as the response of God’s grace;
  • Offering of thanksgiving for God’s grace;
  • The Word read after hearts are prepared;
  • The Word explained;
  • People respond with praise, prayer, offerings to God
    who has revealed Himself through the Word;
  • People sent out to love and serve the Lord.

OUR VISION

To proclaim Christ and live as his disciples through worship, connection, and service.

OUR MISSION

First Presbyterian Church exists to proclaim the Gospel in order to transform lives and to demonstrate Christian living to impact the world for the cause of Christ.

OUR CORE VALUES

Upward – Finding a deeper connection with the living God through scripture, prayer & music

Outward – Partnering with God to share His Love with the world

Inward – We thrive by loving each other as Jesus loves us

Onward – Walking with the next generation on their journey of faith
