Stewardship Giving

"The good news about Presbyterians and their stewardship of time, talent and treasure is that when authentic mission needs are presented, many respond generously. Where there is a vibrant, exciting church, that congregation has made stewardship a spiritual matter. For those Presbyterians stewardship has to do with how they live and their daily commitments to Jesus Christ as their Lord".  Presbyterian USA 2020

The Begining Of The New Christian Year


Mark 13:26 "Then they will see 'the Son of Man coming in clouds' with great power and glory."

and hope into a world of despair.

The First Presbyterian Church is a busy place. Yet amid all the activities going on, our focus remains on serving God through worship, education, outreach, and fellowship. We also enjoy having fun and believe that God delights in our laughter no less than in our prayers. We value innovation as well as tradition, and with a healthy mix of both ingredients seek to grow in love, faith, and understanding.

Prayer of The Week


Romans 13:11-14 

11 And do this, understanding the present time: The hour has already come for you to wake up from your slumber, because our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed.


12 The night is nearly over; the day is almost here. So let us put aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light. 


13 Let us behave decently, as in the daytime, not in carousing and drunkenness, not in sexual immorality and debauchery, not in dissension and jealousy. 


14 Rather, clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ, and do not think about how to gratify the desires of the flesh. "The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; My God, my rock, in whom I take refuge; My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold and my refuge; My savior, Thou dost save me from violence. "I call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised; And I am saved from my enemies."
