We welcome you to worship with us through the fellowship of our body of Christ. Just as each body is a wonderful collection of different and necessary parts, we want you to become a part of our family. We are so excited you are interested in learning more about us. When you visit the church, we hope you discover what we already know, and that is that the Spirit of God is doing amazing things at First Presbyterian Church. From all kinds of vibrant ministries to eye-opening Biblical discoveries to some of the most caring people you will ever meet, First Presbyterian Church is the place for you. If you are interested in exploring membership here at First Presbyterian Church, please talk with any of our ushers, or our Pastor, Hanna Peterson-Shearer, following worship on Sunday morning. You may also give Pastor Hanna a call during the week, as she will be happy to respond to any questions you may have. You are welcome to attend church and any of our functions before becoming a member. We hope that you will want to become a part of the FPC family. See you soon!

Children

“Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.” Luke 18:16a


Jesus took children seriously, and so do we.  We celebrate children, and seek to integrate them fully into the life of the church.  So what does that mean?  Well, it means that, just like Jesus, we welcome children:

In worship.

Singing, praying, being in fellowship; nurturing the gifts they've been given for the building up of the entire body. 

In baptism.

We believe that baptism witnesses to the truth that God’s love claims us before we are able to respond in faith, so whether you profess your faith or are presented in faith as an infant or child, we will, after proper instruction, baptize and welcome believers and their children into God’s covenant love.

In communion.

Christ has set the table for us, and all are welcome. 

In discipleship.

We promise to bring up our children in the care and nurture of the Lord, Jesus Christ, and we seek to do that by demonstrating God’s love always, through Bible-centered teaching and activities that reinforce those lessons.

In service.

Whether we’re collecting cans for the Souper Bowl or quarters for Heifer Project,  making cards for shut-ins or placemats for prisoners, our children learn early on that being a disciple means serving others, and that there is always something you can do, regardless of age or size.
