 At First Presbyterian Church, we are more than just Sunday morning. We strive to take our faith in Jesus Christ and put it to 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.
