At the heart of First Presbyterian Church is our worshiping congregation affirming the inclusive love of God, which is made known through Jesus Christ. That love makes a difference in our lives and challenges us to make a difference in the world. We lift our voices in prayer and praise, and music moves and inspires us at a level deeper than mere words alone.

Special Church

Thursdays from 3:30 – 5:00PM

Special Church is a program for adults and teenagers with Special Needs.  The group gathers for fellowship and spiritual.  We begin with fellowship time as we all gather and share news of our week’s activities.  We then work on a craft project which is often linked to the church calendar, and of course music is a very important part of Special Church.
