Adult Sunday School is continuing their study of Diana Butler Bass's book, Broken We Kneel, through March 22. All are welcome to attend. Bass asks questions related to Christian identity about patriotism and citizenship and how they relate to congregational life. She reminds us that our Christian identity, at times, isn't compatible with national politics. Books are available from Margaret Bolt for $10.00. For any questions, contact John Bolt or George Lilley.

We, the people of First Presbyterian Church, are a welcoming congregation practicing the hospitality of Jesus by greeting, welcoming, and embracing visitors and guests. In addition to extending hospitality, we gladly assist visitors by helping them find their way through the building. If you’re unsure of where something is, just ask! We happily and consistently endeavor to reflect Christ’s love to visitors, guests, neighbors, and each other.
Attention Parents: We have a kids’ space in the back of the sanctuary with sensory and quiet activities to give children an outlet during worship. Don’t worry if a little noise comes from one of our little worshippers - we are grateful to have all ages in worship with us! We also have a nursery on the lower level for infants through age 5. Please feel free to take your children to meet our nursery attendants, Janine and Teanna, if you wish to do so.
We have a Prayer Place in the sanctuary for you to share prayer requests prior to the service. These requests will also be used to create a church prayer list distributed each week.
