First Time Visitor?

 

WHAT TO EXPECT


Do I have to stand up in front of people?

No, we won't ask you to do that. We provide green cards in each pew that you are welcome to fill out with your name and any prayer requests that you may have. That's about as rough as it gets. We desire that you feel at home at First Presbyterian Church from your very first visit. We do want to know you better, and to that end we want to meet you. There's a time set aside during each service where the people around you are encouraged to introduce themselves to you. This makes it a little more personal than having you introduce yourself to such a large group. So don't be afraid to tell us who you are. You might see someone you know.


Do I have to wake up early?

Hey, that's a good question. We are all really maxed out because of our fast-paced society. We work ourselves to exhaustion during the week and when the weekend gets here we need some down time. Considering this, the folks who make up First Presbyterian Church meet together at various times throughout the week and weekends. Our worship services take place on Sunday at 10:00 a.m. with Sunday School at 8:45 a.m.


Do you want my money?

Well, not really, and here's why we say that. The First Presbyterian folks who are a regular part of our community give on a weekly basis to support our many activities. When you visit with us, look around you. Everything we have is because someone has given of their time or money to make it possible. In time, if you decide to become a regular part of our church, you may decide that you would like to participate in our many activities and efforts here and around the world. We will welcome your support. For now, our desire for you is simply that you come and check us out without feeling any pressure to give.


Are you going to tell me what's wrong with me?

To start with that question presumes that we are better than you. That's not the case. The message that Jesus shared was about the good news. Jesus did not come to earth to condemn us. Instead, He came to give us real life. We are beggars here, possibly like you...The only difference is that we have just found the place to receive real bread and happiness. We desire that you come away from one of our services with the reality that we are all working on personal issues, just like you.


Do I have to dress up?

No, you don't. Sunday has always traditionally been a special day of the week and hence we all tend to dress up for special times. 10:00 Worship Service is a blended service. Join us and you will see people dressed in comfortable clothes and others dressed in suits and dresses.


I have kids. What can I do with them if I come?

At First Presbyterian Church we have a fun and exciting worship time at our 10:00 service for our children. A nursery for children through age 2, is provided during our worship services. We have taken all the necessary arrangements to ensure the safety of your children by screening and interviewing all workers and volunteers. Children are definitely welcome to attend service with you if that makes you feel more comfortable. Handy bags with children bulletins and crayons are made available to them. Children in grades K-5 are released part way though the service to attend their very own Children's Church!  Click here for more information on our Children's Programs.


I've got more questions.
