How to Get Involved in the Life of the Church

There are many more ways to become involved in the life of First Presbyterian. Children, teens, college students, and women are provided with special ways to be active members of the church.

Among the small groups that presently are active at First Presbyterian are a Thursday Noon Bible Study based on the lectionary, Liturgical Arts, and Eco-Justice. New groups are welcome and fostered.

The primary governing body of the Presbyterian congregation is the Session. Elders are elected by the congregation to plan the life and work of the church. The Deacons of the church visit and offer assistance and comfort to congregational members. Communion and chancel preparation are also part of the many services they provide.

Sunday School lessons will be combined with crafts, music, and play activities appropriate for young children. Similar activities will continue during the church hour.
