Church Activities & Events

The people of First Presbyterian love to get together throughout the year to enjoy many activities and events, and we especially like mealtime with our fellow church members and friends.  If you are interested in participating in any of the activities listed below, we publish event details in our monthly newsletter, News from First Presbyterian.

Participating in the life of the church by your attendance is not only fun and rewarding, but also leads to new interests, friendships, and opportunities to grow in your faith.  Please check back frequently as our list changes from time to time.
