Reformation Sunday

October 29

Join us as we commemorate the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation: the beginning of our Presbyterian Christian faith. Our worship will include the special music of Bach’s cantata, Gott der Herr ist Sonn und Schild (God the Lord is Sun and Shield), and Pastor Kristie Finley and Director of Music Tom Tropp will be teaching us about the Reformation, its history and music, between services in the Chapel.


Embarking on its 53rd year in early childhood education, First Presbyterian Church Preschool continues to embrace its strong reputation for initiating a lifetime love of learning for young children.

Worship is at the heart of our life.

We invite you to join us on Sundays at 9 or 11 a.m. for a worship service.

During the summer months (Memorial Day – Labor Day), we have a “come as you are” service at 10 a.m. in the Sanctuary and a concurrent service in the Playground for children, families and the young at heart.

What to Expect

Our Prayer for This Time

"God of abundant grace, in this season of transitions, hear the murmurings of our hearts, seeking hope for healing. God, you are always present, yet we often don’t see your light. Open our eyes to the treasure we have in each other, and help us to cross the threshold towards growth in Jesus Christ, guiding us on a path to reconciliation. Prepare us, as we travel together, to accept the challenge of change in the mystery of your grace. Filled with your Spirit, we ask that you step with us into this clearing with the transformative power of your love. With gratitude we pray. Amen."


We can’t wait to get to know you! Join us for these upcoming events.
