The past couple of years have been beyond challenging and we take great pride in the strength and resiliency of our congregation. We’re sure you share that feeling with us! New Beginnings: Our Promises for Tomorrow is not just a financial campaign to support the church as an institution. It’s reminder that First Pres is a family and family looks out for each other. Your support of our mission is critical as we continue to expand the impact our ministries both within and outside of our church walls.
