First Presbyterian Church

ACTIVITIES

We believe that Christ wants us to have and live the "abundant life." He wants us to enjoy life in an atmosphere where Christians can fellowship and make wholesome leisure choices. Our Activities Ministry is not separate from the church, but an integral part of our total. We hope that you will see our programs in their relationship to Jesus Christ and His church.

The programs listed below are just some of the many offered throughout the year. Lindsay Graham, Activities Minister, is eager to help you and your family with your recreational needs.

Questions? Call Lindsay Graham at 672.1844 or Donna Roper at 672.0372.
