Giving Tree

You and your family are invited to select an ornament and fulfill a wish this Christmas season! This is a simple yet powerful way to reach out to our friends at Casa Central in Chicago! Please return unwrapped gifts with their ornament tag to the church by Dec. 12!

Women's Christmas Tea

The 14th Annual Deacon Women’s Christmas Tea will be on Monday, Dec. 5 at 7pm and we invite all ladies of First Pres & friends to join us for a special evening of fellowship, reflection and hope!

Christmas Pageant

Children lead worship on Dec. 11 at 9am with our annual Christmas Pageant! Come to the rehearsal (Sat. Dec. 10 9-10am with costume pick-up 8:30-9am or after rehearsal) and stay for Breakast! Kiwanis hosts a Breakfast with Santa in our Fellowship Hall on Saturday, Dec 10 8-11am. No RSVP required.

Worship is at the heart of our life.

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