About Our Church


First United Presbyterian is a member of the Presbyterian Church USA.  Our worship reflects our Reformed tradition. To learn more about what it means to be Presbyterian go to 

We celebrate the Lordís Supper the first Sunday of each month.The first Sunday of the month is also Family Sunday, a time in which children are invited stay for the entire service as there is no Church School on that day. Church school is held for children during the worship hour. 


Children are an important part of worship to God at First United. On any given Sunday, a child or teen will be greeting people, taking the offering, lighting candles, reading scripture or sharing their musical talents.  





During the winter months we worship in our chapel. 
Worship in our chapel allows for a more intimate experience and for more contemporary forms of worship such as using a praise music DVD on our big screen.


We move into our historic sanctuary on Palm Sunday.
