What are the sacraments or ordinances?

What is baptism?

Is baptism with water the washing away of sin itself?

Every Sunday the Catechism Class meets at 11:00 to spend just fifteen minutes discussing one or more questions and answers from the New City Catechism, which is a systematic presentation of basic Christian beliefs. Come this week for the answers to the questions above!


Discipleship groups are relationships formed with others which help us grow in our relationship with Christ. In these groups, we are seeking a balance of biblical teaching, fellowship, and prayer. At First Presbyterian Church, we are currently placing a new emphasis on these types of groups, in recognition of how important such relationships are for our spiritual growth. Don't hesitate to contact us if you are interested in any of the following groups.
