Jesus' Appearances From Resurrection To Ascension

In this six week series, Pastor Tom and Dustin lead us through the forty days of Jesus' time on earth after His Resurrection until HIs Ascension. 

"The Final Days of Jesus"

This Lenten series leads us through the final days of Jesus' life. We'll follow Jesus on His journey to Jerusalem, to the cross, into the tomb, and then out of the tomb on Easter Sunday! 


 In this new sermon series, Pastors Tom and Dustin help us understand our church’s Mission, Vision, and Values, as well as how God is calling us to join Him in this work. 


More than anything else, First Presbyterian Church wants you to encounter God's presence in worship. The primary way that God meets with people is through the Bible. For that reason, we read, pray, sing, preach, listen to, and obey the Bible because it's God's actual words given to us. We pray that God would use His Word and these worship services to speak to you, to encourage you, and to bring you closer to Him. Reach out and let us know how we can better serve you. We can't wait to meet you!
