Soli Deo Gloria

Leadership of the Church

“To the Glory of God Alone” has been our guiding motto since we opened our doors in 1838. We are a growing community from diverse backgrounds and experiences, who care about our community and world. Inspired by the hospitality of Jesus, all of God’s children are welcomed into the life of the church. Come worship with us!

First Presbyterian Church is guided by the leadership of elected Elders and Deacons. Inspired by God’s direction, our democratic process enables all to be represented and to participate in the life and direction of the church. Come worship with us!

“First Presbyterian is my home church because I was baptized here, married here, have raised my children here. The first song I learned in Sunday school was, “The church is not a building, the church is not a steeple… the church is the people.” It is the people of first Pres who have kept me coming back for 40+ years. Our service in the community, our music, and our love for each other will always make this church home to me.”
