The Great Chili Cook-Off is Coming....

Chilli Cookoff


February 8th, following Worship


Church Dining Room


Everyone who loves to make or eat chili! Any church group that wants to enter its chili into the competition is asked to call the church (344-0911).

Celebrity Judges:

Andy Dominianni, Channel 3 Anchor
Keith Thompson, Channel 3 Weatherman


Proceeds go to One Great Hour of Sharing

The cost is $3 individual or $5 a family. It gets you sampling bowls, utensils and your tickets or "Chili Votes" for some of the categories. A panel of celebrity guest judges will determine the grand prize winners. Remember....it all goes to a great cause...One Great Hour of Sharing!

Pre pay before service in the Gathering Place and avoid lines later in the dining room.

As always, the real winner is One Great Hour of Sharing. Since 1949, Presbyterians have joined with millions of Christians to share God’s love with people in need. Our gifts support ministries of disaster response, refugee assistance and resettlement, and community development.


This I Believe

...it helps me to think of God as a sculptor forming us out of the clay in His hands, breathing life into us and bestowing on this creature some element of His Deity.


Garrett Boresma

Seeking a Church Home

I chose the church  partially because of my Presbyterian background and my prior awareness of First Presbyterian Church, but more importantly because it represents a compatibility with my beliefs and values and deep commitment to social, financial and human justice.

On becoming a new member

We loved the church’s community involvement, the friendliness of the church family and the weekly teachings. We wanted to become part of that involvement and to have our children grow up in such a wonderful environment.
