“Making the invisible Kingdom of God visible”. . . Chuck Colson
The members of First Presbyterian know that it is our responsibility to serve those in our community, young and old, rich and poor, with kindness and compassion. We have ministries that focus on the needs of those in our city today. We also focus on “the next generation” – our children in need, our youth who need spiritual growth and our university students, local and from afar, who desire Christian friendship and help.
There are many opportunities to serve the people of our city.
