About Us

We Are a Matthew 25 Church

In the Fall of 2019, we became a PC(USA) Matthew 25 Congregation. Our Session made a commitment act on all three areas of focus.

Focus #1

Building congregational vitality by challenging people and congregations to deepen their faith and get actively and joyfully engaged with their community and the world.

Focus #2

Eradicating systemic poverty by working to change laws, policies, plans and structures in our society that perpetuate economic exploitation of people who are poor.

Focus #3

Dismantling structural racism by advocating and acting to break down the systems, practices and thinking that underlie discrimination, bias, prejudice and oppression of people of color. At First Presbyterian Church we are equally committed to dismantling structures which oppress the LGBTQ+ community and all others who experience injustice.

Our Mission Statement

As faithful disciples of Jesus Christ we reach up to God, reach into His Word, and reach out to love and serve.
