"Where everybody knows your name"
Welcome to the First Presbyterian website. We have done our best to make it informative and descriptive of our activities, our mission, and our goals. Some things we cannot do here are to convey the sense of joy and hope of our worship, the warmth of our fellowship, and the dedication of our service in missions. We welcome you to come and visit us to enjoy a sampling of our friendly and open desire to get to know you and connect with you in ministry here in our community and beyond.
When you visit us you will find:
· Moving and inspiring worship services
· A warm welcome from a caring congregation
· Bible-centered preaching and teaching
· Ministries and activities to meet your spiritual needs
Please consider this as your invitation to be our guest whether you are new to the area or a native, and whether you are searching for a year-round or a seasonal church home.
During Lent, Rev. Ken Pyles will be teaching a Thursday night class on grace. He will be using the book "What's So Amazing About Grace?" by nationally praised author Phillip Yamcy. The class will be from 6:30 until 8:00 and begin next Thursday, Feb. 26th through Apr. 2nd. Please let Ken 352 205-5486, or the office352 748-2530 know if you plan to attend.
On March 29th, Palm Sunday, Pastor McKey, the Choir, Celebrants and instrumentalist will present “Canticle of the Cross‘. “Canticle of the Cross” is inspired by Celtic music traditions. This work for Lent and Holy Week presents Christ’s journey to the cross. Utilizing folk songs, hymns and newly composed sacred songs, the music adorns the heart felt message of God’s love and grace displayed in Christ’s redemptive work on Calvary. A thoughtful narration weaves the movements of the work together with Scripture, prayer and poetry, while delivering a reflective message of hope and assurance. We invite you to this special service.
