Our mission statement

From the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) Directory for Worship:

Christian worship joyfully ascribes all praise and honor, glory and power to the triune God. In worship the people of God acknowledge God present in the world and in their lives. As they respond to God' claim and redemptive action in Jesus Christ, believers are transformed and renewed. In worship the faithful offer themselves to God and are equipped for God's service in the world. (Book of Order, W-1.1001)

God initiates, we respond:

Presbyterian worship revolves around the Word (Scripture, read and preached) and the Sacraments (Baptism and Communion). Presbyterians believe that God initiates grace and redemption, and the people of God respond with acts that include thanksgiving, praise, confession, proclamation, prayer, offering, and being sent out for service.

Communion and Baptism:

At First Presbyterian Church, we celebrate the Sacrament of Communion (the Lord's Supper), on average, 12 times a year. The moveable schedule includes annual liturgical observances, such as Christmas Eve, Easter, and Pentecost.

The Sacrament of Baptism is offered to all of those who respond by profession of faith to God's gift of grace through Jesus Christ. The sacrament is extended to infants and children, witnessing to the truth that God's love claims us before we are able to respond in faith.
