At First Presbyterian Church, our love for Christ is exemplified in our care for our congregation and community. As we promote a biblical worldview in all areas of Care, our desire is to develop life communities and intergenerational fellowship among our covenant partners and within our community. This endeavor provides a safe place to strengthen us as we grow our relationship with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. We offer various ministries to support members and friends during times of special need. See below for information on all of our Congregational Care ministries to learn more about how to get involved or how to receive care.
