"A Sanctuary in the City… Living Faith"

Your Sanctuary in the City… Living Faith

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.
