Tips for the Journey

Life is a journey, and often life is hard. It's a good thing that God has given us His Word to guide us along the journey. In these sermons, you'll hear wisdom from God's Word and from Pastor Tom. 


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!
