Out of the Darkness Walk

Our September Mission Emphasis

Some members of the church and church youth group will be participating in the Out of the Darkness suicide prevention walk in September. Please consider making a donation to this important mission of our church. Checks can be made payable to the First Presbyterian Church with a note in the memo for Out of the Darkness mission. We will be collecting this mission giving through October 4th. Thanks in advance for your ongoing mission support. Your donations bring education programs to our schools and communities nationwide. Please consider giving to support this mission of love.




First Presbyterian Church actively exists as the living body of Christ,

committed to growing in faithfulness to God,

serving the whole human family and

welcoming all people into God’s love.
