As you enter First Presbyterian Church you may want to ask people “Why are you here?” Some might say, “I come here to be part of a caring community.” Others might answer, “I’ve been coming to church ever since I was a child. I miss it when I’m not here.” Those who are newer to the church might say, “I come because of the sermon/music/prayer/liturgy.”

These answers are centered on the needs, habits, or expectations of individual worshipers. But as Presbyterians we believe Christian worship is all about GOD. As you browse through the pages of our website, you will see all we do is for the love of God, through loving our neighbor as He commanded.*
