The local church governing body is the Session which is made up of 9 elected representatives of the congregation. These members serve as chairs of the various committees in the life of the church.
Members and friends of First Presbyterian Church are invited and encouraged to be involved in the ministry of the church. One of the ways everyone can take part is by serving with others to carry out the mission and work of the church.
Please feel free to contact any of the Session members if you have questions about any of these ministry opportunities. Remember, everyone is invited to be involved in the mission and work of First Presbyterian Church!
