What to Expect
We look forward to meeting you.
We’re blessed to be a worshiping body of believers with diverse worship expressions and traditions. In all our services, we aim to exalt God, to draw closer to him, and to be sent out in our city and world with the good news that Christ is Lord. We'd love for you to fill out a virtual Connect Card so we can connect you with ministries at the church. After a service, come introduce yourself to one of our ushers, greeters, or pastors. Between the 9:15 and 11:00 services, we have a fellowship time in Lynn Hall. Stop by; we’d love to meet you!
During our Sunday morning worship services, we offer nursery and children's ministry. Of course, children are always welcome to remain in worship with their families, too.
Sunday Morning | 8:30 a.m.
Drawing from the traditional practice of the Liturgy of the Hours, a spiritual discipline that steps into a daily rhythm of Morning, Noon, Evening and Night prayers, you're invited to join us for time of morning prayer before our Sunday worship services.
Sunday Morning | 9:15 a.m.
Our contemporary worship service focuses on coming into the presence of God in a more casual, contemporary posture while still honoring our liturgical roots. We’re led in passionate songs of praise and enjoy close-knit fellowship and Biblical teaching. Nursery and Impact are available for your children.
Sunday Morning | 11:00 a.m.
Our traditional liturgical services provides our church family with the opportunity to corporately confess our sins, receive and offer forgiveness, pray together, and receive the sacraments. We sing traditional hymns together, led by a heart-filled choir, talented musicians, and a towering organ. Nursery and Impact are available for your children.
Wednesday Morning | 7:30 a.m.
All of us can be swept up in the busyness of our weeks and can lose our focus on God and his call to enjoy him. That’s why we take a moment to be still in God’s presence Wednesday mornings at Come to the Quiet, a 30-minute service of music and prayer. Check our events page to see when the next one is scheduled.
Sunday Evening | 6:00 p.m.
Our once-a-month Sunday evening service offers the opportunity to be encouraged by a covenant partner's testimony and a time of prayer, reflection and worship together. Check our events page to see when the next one is scheduled.
Outside of worship services, there's so much more to know about our church family and we'd love to connect with you in-person.
Walking with one another through some of life's most sacred moments, whether joyful or sorrowful, is a key part of our journey together and an important part of our ministry as a church. Please contact our Worship Coordinator Rachal Eriksen to learn more about scheduling a baptism, wedding or funeral.
Whether you're interested in baptism, preparing for marriage, grappling with big questions about faith and life or simply just need someone to talk to, our pastors are always available to meet with you for pastoral counseling. Feel free to reach out directly to one of them or contact our Worship Coordinator, Rachal Eriksen, to set up a first appointment.
Our Stephen Ministry pairs trained, caring brothers and sisters in Christ from First Presbyterian with those who need support. They are especially ready to come alongside you when you need care most, in grief, depression, anxiety, illness, and more. Stephen Ministers are companions for your Christian walk, ready to listen and, with humility, help you discern your next steps. Each Stephen Minister is trained in pastoral care as well as confidentiality, the cornerstones of healthy spiritual care.
Discover First is a class offered to those at First Presbyterian Church who would like to learn more about the church, how to get engaged with ministry and service opportunities, and explore becoming Covenant Partners. The class is offered periodically on Saturday mornings and is followed by a special time the next day in worship when we receive our new Covenant Partners.
We know how hard it can be to find an entry point into a new church family. Whether you're visiting for the first time, wanting to explore how you might become a Covenant Partner, or just looking to reconnect after a season away, we'd love to sit down and visit with you. We want to hear your story, tell you a bit more of ours, and see how we might walk forward together.
