 At First Presbyterian Church, we are more than just Sunday morning. We strive to take our faith in Jesus Christ and put it at work in the world. Our Ministry Teams are “the driving force of our church” that carry us into ministry. For a complete list of our Ministry Teams, visit our Ministries page.

Operation Christmas Child

The Collection Center is now closed!

We are happy to report that we surpassed our goal of receiving 8,000 shoe-boxes this year! Thanks to every individual, family, and church that packed a shoe-box and contributed to this year’s collection. What a joy it is to have the chance to give a gift to children who have so little, while also spreading the Good News of God’s love.

Trunk or Treat 2015

Thanks to everyone that attended and participated in our 7th Annual Trunk or Treat event on October 25th! We were once again blessed with a beautiful, sunny fall afternoon. The trunks voted as the top three in the “People’s Choice Trunk” contest were…

First Place: The “Witch’s Brew Trunk” by the Winga family

Second Place: The “Carnival Trunk” by the Solberg family

Third Place: The “Green Bay Packers Trunk” by the Locher family

Photos from this event are on our Facebook Page. For those families that had family pictures taken, they will be mailed to you within the next two weeks. In addition to the fun and creativity that this event brings, it also give us an opportunity to get to know our neighbors throughout the community.
