Mission Statement

We offer a deep sense of home that is warm, welcoming and accepting. Worship expresses our gratitude for God's unimaginable grace. We seek to bring every age into discipleship, nurture all God's people, listen for God's call in the midst of our lives, witness to the presence of God's Kingdom in our world as we engage in mission, and to 'see Christ in the face of others.'

Verse of the Day
Rally Day
Rally Day, September 13, will be extra special this year.  Not only is it the first day of Sunday school and the kick off for our fall ministries, it also comes with a special guest.  Reverend MaryAnn McKibben Dana, author and national speaker, will come to First Presbyterian Church to help us “experiment with holy time”.  She will preach, teach Sunday school for adults AND hold a lunch chat, all centered round our need for and the benefit of taking time off from our full schedules.  She helps us see the 4th commandment as an invitation for a richer, fuller, closer time with God  in and around our modern day lives. Curious about this experiment?   Come, see, hear … September 13.
Mission Event
We invite you to "Walk 30 Minutes in My Shoes" a poverty simulation event on Sunday, August 23, following the 10 AM worship service. Take this opportunity to 'refocus' your understanding of our impoverished brothers and sisters. Age appropriate activities will be provided for those 6 years and older (childcare is available for our youngest). Please RSVP to the church office.
Mission Opportunity
Share the Harvest, our mission to bring fresh produce to the hungry, is in full swing. Each Saturday through October at the close of the Farmer's Market (12 PM), we collect donations from the farmers and take the produce to the Salvation Army (and in the fall, the Y.E.S. Club). If you would like to participate in this mission opportunity, please sign-up on the bulletin board in Heritage Hall, there are still openings in September and October.
Witnesses of Faith
As we discern where God is leading us, members of our church family have graciously agreed to share their stories.

Giving Statements

      Did you know that you can have your giving statements e-mailed to you?  This convenient option saves church resourses and natural resources, and we can send the information to you more often. 

We currently e-mail statements at the end of each quarter, so that you can make certain that your gifts have been properly credited to you in a more timely manner.  Paper statements are mailed twice a year. 

Please e-mail Patty at phussey@granpres.org to sign up.
