Welcome to First Presbyterian

We are now in Phase IV of our Framework for Safely Re-Entering Our Building.  This phase allows for wider reopening measures, including expanded office hours, greater access for members with key fobs, and increased in person opportunities for ministries and affiiliated groups.   All those entering our building are expected to wear a mask at all times, regardless of vaccination status.  Food and drink are allowed in outdoor contexts, including Coffee Hour on the Front Lawn and a new Canopy on Hill St available by reservation.  Help us protect the vulnerable while also engaging each other as we extend Christ's Love to all.

If you are new to us we invite you to visit and explore our many programs and service opportunities! First Pres provides you the worship, educational and service opportunities of a large church, while at the same time offering you the warmth and closeness of a small church in our small group ministries. Our Youth and Childrens' programs provide your children with a rich set of experiences and life lessons that will guide them as they mature in the Christian faith.

The Pastor Nominating Committee (PNC) is committed to being open and transparent in their search for a Lead Pastor. They meet weekly and can be reached at pnc2021@firstpresbyterian.org. Information about the search is available here on our website.  Click here for a description of the members of the PNC.
