The best way to grow as a disciple is to learn and serve. We empower people to serve God more fully by offering opportunities for both.
You can deepen your understanding and belief in God through one of our many studies on Sunday morning, Wednesday evening, at Presbyterian Women circles, or online.

Here are just a few of the many ways you can make a difference in our community and beyond via the ministries of First Presbyterian Church
