We invite you to visit our church and worship with us each Sunday at 9:00AM! Please check our calendar for other fellowship opportunities.

A nursery is available for childcare during Sunday school and Worship services.
Mission Statement: In gratitude to God, empowered by the Holy Spirit, we strive to discern what God is calling us to do as we serve Christ in our daily and corporate lives through worship and spiritual formation, education and discipleship, hospitality and fellowship, and mission. Putting our faith into action, we seek to create a loving community that God challenges, renews, equips, and sends out into the world to love others, to care for the sick and needy, to demonstrate kindness and mercy, and to work for justice and peace.

ADULT EDUCATION Next Sunday (10:30 AM):
FAITHWEAVER STUDY FOR ADULTS – The Bible study, related to the lectionary readings and paralleling the scriptural basis of the children’s classes for the same day, meets on the lower level in the Multi-Purpose Room. Steve Ernst leads the study.
CURRENT EVENTS – Jolene Ebbert leads the discussion of current events and the way in which our always-changing world affects us as Christians, in the Parlor.
A DECLARATION OF FAITH – “The Christian Church”. When the “Northern” and “Southern” churches reunited in the 1980s, the General Assembly of the PC(USA) approved the Southern church’s contemporary statement of faith for use in worship and instruction. Innovative in format and comprehensive in its content, the Declaration is particularly suitable for liturgical use, dealing with many themes represented in scripture and sermon. It is the confessional statement from which our Sunday morning affirmation of faith is most often selected. Rev. Taylor leads the class, meeting in Room B-9 (lower level).
ADULT EDUCATION This Monday (7:00 PM):
2 CORINTHIANS – Mark Southard continues a reading and discussion of Paul’s second letter to the Christian congregation in Corinth. The class meets on the lower level in Room B-9 (lower level).
Children and Youth Sunday School and Activities at First Presbyterian Church
Children and youth are encouraged to join us each Sunday morning at 10:30am. We offer classes for nursery/preschool, elementary aged children, and middle school and high school youth. The preschool, elementary children, youth and one adult class use the Faithweaver Bible study curriculum. Each class studies the same scripture in an age appropriate way, and the adults are encouraged to engage the children and youth in conversation about their Bible lesson each week
September through May the elementary children are invited to GOLD (Giving Our Lives to God Daily) directly following our midweek meal. This is a structured time of interactive activities that are tied to the week’s Bible study lesson. Wednesday 5:30-7:00 pm
The youth group also meets at this time for fellowship, activities, and Bible study under the direction of fulltime youth director, Annette Newcomb. They are a growing youth group with a focus on building healthy and happy relationships and growing closer to God. Wednesday 5:30-8:00 pm
Please contact Christy Aday, at 580-762-2431 for additional information.
