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.

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.
