Ways you can serve

In the book of Nehemiah, we read about a simple cup-bearer with a very large task set before him. The walls of Jerusalem lay demolished, the Jewish people are broken and scared, and foreign armies cover Jerusalem on all sides. God tasked Nehemiah, someone who knew very little about building walls, with the good and awesome work of rebuilding the broken walls of Jerusalem. Nehemiah knew he couldn’t do it alone, however, and he rallied the people to take back what was rightfully theirs.


The story of Nehemiah is often overlooked by many, but we believe that Nehemiah's story is one of the greatest reminders to all of us of the task at hand.


Jesus has commissioned us as believers with the good and awesome work of being His hands and feet. As the body of Christ, we should be united as one body of believers under the cross, and work together to find the broken walls in our lives and rebuild them.


Here at First Presbyterian, we are daily attempting (with God’s guidance and help) to rebuild the walls that the world has broken down. Just like Nehemiah, we can’t do this alone. Many hands are required for this task, and even simple cup-bearers are called to be more than what the world tells them they can be.


The point is, the church is not just a building, in the same was as Jerusalem is not just it's powerful walls. The church is the bride of Christ; His people. This building, if left to it’s own devices, would not go out and start telling people about Jesus. This building can’t shape and mold a young person’s life; only the gospel can. I encourage all of you to volunteer in some form or another, and help us rebuild the walls of a broken and dying world desperately in need of Christ’s love. Be His hands and feet.

Music Ministry


Here at First Pres, the purpose of our music ministry is to glorify God through song; and to lift our voices and hearts to Him so we may thank God for His grace and proclaim His gospel to all.


“My heart is steadfast, O God, my heart is steadfast; I will sing and make melody!” Psalm 57:7 “


It is good to give thanks to the LORD, to sing praises to your name, O Most High” Psalm 92:1

Chancel Choir: Our chancel choir meets each Wednesday in the sanctuary after the family dinner from 7-8pm to learn new music and have a time of fellowship and prayer; and on Sunday mornings at 10 a.m. before the worship service. The style of song is primarily traditional with a blend of current contemporary songs set for the choir to deliver. The choir welcomes new singers at any time! Directed by Jody Schnell.


Handbell Choir: The handbell choir meets every Tuesday in the sanctuary from 6-7pm to rehearse and is featured once per month in the Sunday morning worship service. The handbell choir plays a variety of hymns and old and new standards of our faith. Speak with Jody Schnell about becoming involved!

Children's MInistry


Here at First Presbyterian, we marvel at the faith of children. We pray that God will not only help us as we instruct them in the ways of the Lord, but that He would teach us through them as well. We also strive to work together with our amazing parents in the church, and provide tools to assist them in their "ministry" work at home. May God bless our humble efforts as we bring our blessed little ones to the feet of Jesus.

Sunday School & Wednesday Night: If you have a heart for teaching children about God's word, we have a home for you. Both preschool and elementary aged classes are filled with hearts yearning to learn more about Christ and His desire to have a relationship with us. For more details on how you can be involved, contact Shannon Allen.


Nursery: Our amazing nursery volunteers serve once every quarter and are hugely influential on the families of First Presbyterian. This is not just childcare, this is an  environment were children start learning about who God is and why He loves them. Contact Shannon Allen to be a part of this ministry!

Youth Ministry


As sinners constantly in need of God's grace, we understand that the Christian walk is one of reformation. Daily we are being sancitified by the Holy Spirit, and through this renovation process, our old spiritual house is being renewed day by day. Renovation means no gimmicks, and no smoke and mirrors. All of us are sinful, all of us need a savior, and all of us need renovation. Come clean house with us.

Sunday School & Wednesday Night: Junior & Senior High students meet Sunday mornings at 9:15am, and Wednesday nights at 6pm following the church dinner. We welcome you to come be a light in these student's lives as they seek Christ and dive into the bible truths that challenge and encourage their faith in Him.
