Welcome to First Presby

All are welcome at First Presbyterian Church!

First Presbyterian Church is a welcoming home, a beacon of Christ’s light arising from inspiring worship and loving discipleship.

The church is called to recognize the humanity of all who suffer.  The church is called to respond by ministering to their needs, ending their humiliation, and participating in their lives.  In this way, the church is called to witness to God’s power to restore people, and redeem lives.

Worship is central to our life together, and all we do in the life of the church must be a faithful response to God – who encounters us in worship, and through our lives.  Having experienced what amazing things can be done in the name of Jesus Christ, when people are united in ministry, I am seeking a call to a congregation, where we may use our God given talents, together, as we seek to “Glorify God, And Enjoy God Forever.” – Pastor Myers

First Presby Preschool

First Presbyterian Church Preschool celebrates 75 years of high-quality education. We currently serve ages 1-5 through the use of Creative Curriculum: Educating children to be creative, independent, and caring individuals.

In 2021, our facility underwent a renovation to the building, updating spaces, and adding additional preschool spaces and extensive security features.
