Meaning in the Middle
|Formerly known as SCRATCH, we meet online on Sunday evenings to share the ups and downs of our lives and discuss a (very) short reading about faith. We talk about how to find God and meaning in the middle of wherever we are: as Christians, as professionals, as friends and family, as parents, as middle-of-life adults (whatever that circumstance might look like for you). We also gather for monthly picnics or potlucks and have an annual retreat for planning and fellowship.|

CHILDREN’S FAITH FORMATION:
The goal of children’s ministry at First Presbyterian Church is to nurture the spirit and the faith of our children as they grow. We also strive to support parents in helping their children grow in faith. We believe that parents/families/caregivers are their children’s primary faith guides.
