Worship is the centerpiece of life at First Presbyterian Church. We gather as a family of faith twice each Sunday to hear God’s word read and proclaimed (except during the summer, when only one service is offered at 10:00 am). The early service at 8:30 am is identical in most ways to the later service at 11:00 am except that communion is served weekly during early worship. A printed order of worship given to all who attend includes the elements for worship in addition to announcements and other vital information. Each service is grounded in the Reformed Protestant tradition, meaning our music, prayer and preaching are meant for “the priesthood of all believers,” not just a few. The congregation is comprised of people from all walks of life—children, college students, families and retirees, making for a beautiful blending of generations in which to worship God.

The death of a loved one is sometimes unexpected and always painful. During a time of grief and sorrow, pressing questions arise about funeral arrangements, leaving family members and close friends of the deceased with the responsibility of navigating the logistics of a funeral. In order to facilitate this process, the Session of First Presbyterian Church approved a policy handbook in 2009 to help families maneuver the often-complicated details of planning a funeral service. Our pastors, staff and congregation want to assist you in any way possible. Please click on the link below to view the policy. If you have questions or require additional information, contact the church office at 234-1757.
