Beginning Tuesday, March 17 our First Presbyterian Church building will be closed to all business. This closure includes cancellation of all classes and other activities held in our facility. We have also cancelled regular Sunday Worship at 10:00 and have virtual services on our YouTube Channel. Currently, our plan is to celebrate Easter the first Sunday we can worship together in person. We are developing other means of relating through virtual connectivity. Please, watch our website and Facebook page for more information about staying connected through these uncertain and unprecedented times. Staff will remain available and responsive through email.

May God’s grace and peace be with us all.

Virtual AA meetings:



Welcome to First Presbyterian Church! We believe God loves all people, without exception or exclusion. Wherever we are on life’s journey, God gathers us with our myriad experiences and perspectives to follow Jesus through love, learning, and service.

God calls us to be compassionate and committed, vital and visionary, alongside people of all faiths, engaging our beautiful and broken world.

We seek to live faith as a sanctuary in the city.

Sunday Worship

Our traditional Sunday Worship Service begins at 10:00 a.m. and includes organ and choir music. We invite children to attend worship and participate in the “Moment for Young Worshipers” after which they are escorted to Sunday School.
