When are Sunday church services?

The Sunday following Labor day until The Sunday before Memorial day, First United Presbyterian offers the following:

9:00 AM Sunday School for All Ages

10:15 AM Worship Service in the Sanctuary

11:15 AM Fellowship in the Fellowship Hall

During the Summer (The Sunday after Memorial day to the Sunday before Labor day) First United Presbyterian offers a 9:00 AM service on Sunday.

What should I expect during Sunday School

Sunday School is open to all who seek a deeper understanding of God and His call for our lives.  Adults gather in Fellowship hall and enjoy coffee and interactive study together.  The youth meet in several different rooms depending on their age.  Dedicated teachers lead each class through a variety of activities designed to lead them to a deeper understanding of God and to nurture their faith.

What should I expect during worship

Our worship follows a traditional Presbyterian liturgy but uses a blend of contemporary Christian music and traditional hymns accompanied on our beautiful pipe organ.  You will see people in a variety of fashions from jeans and T-shirts to more formal clothing.  Don't forget to pick up a cup of coffee or hot chocolate in the narthex to enjoy during worship.   You can click here to see a sample bulletin.

How does one become a member of First United Presbyterian?

First United Presbyterian believes that membership is part of a person's faith journey. Membership allows an individual to vote at congregational meetings and to hold office within the church.  One does not have to be a member to participate in any other aspects of church life nor to receive pastoral care.  New Members are accepted on a profession of faith and baptism, transfer from another church, or reaffirmation of the faith. Official recognition of new membership takes place during a regular worship service. For more information contact the church at 462-3261.
