Care Ministries

Marriages

Marriage is “a way for two spiritual friends to help each other on their journey to become the persons God designed them to be.”
Timothy Keller, The Meaning of Marriage

Whether you’ve been married six months or sixty years, you know there are challenges and joys on the journey of marriage. If you’d like someone or another couple to walk alongside you in all of it, please don’t hesitate to reach out to Pastor Charles, Pastor of Congregational Life, to explore possibilities.

Premarital Counseling

Your wedding day marks the beginning of your covenant with one another in marriage before God. The season of preparing for that marriage can be confusing, exciting, or just downright complex. It would be our pastors’ pleasure to help guide you as you follow Jesus together during your engagement.

You can reach out to one of our pastors directly or contact Rachal Eriksen, our Prayer and Worship Coordinator, if you are interested in having one of our pastors perform your wedding ceremony or having your wedding at FPC.

Aging

“Waiting patiently in expectation does not necessarily get easier as we become older... The challenge of aging is waiting with an ever-greater patience and an ever-stronger expectation. It is living with an eager hope.”
Henri Nouwen, Aging

Growing older in age can be difficult and rich at the same time. In all of that complexity, let’s come alongside each other and live life together, with an eager hope for what God might do next.

If you would like to receive a visit or call from one of our pastors, please email Becky Holmes, our Congregational Care Coordinator, or call the church at (432) 684-7821.

While our senior adult ministries are currently on hold due to the pandemic, visit our Events page to see how you might be connected to what’s going on in the life of our church!

Our Senior Worship Outreach offers tablets to covenant partners of First Presbyterian who are unable to join us for worship in person, with each tablet programmed to provide a one-click connection to our Sunday worship livestream. If you are a covenant partner interested in receiving a tablet, please email Becky Holmes, our Congregational Care Coordinator.
