Serving on committees is one way you can serve the church. Committees make decisions on behalf of the congregation, support our staff, and help dream about the future. Read below about our committees and their roles here at FPC.
Expanded descriptions of the following committees can be found here, including scope of committee work and areas that the ministry covers.
First Presbyterian Church Committees
The Adult Christian Nurture Committee provides a variety of opportunities and experiences which seek to deepen adult experiences of Christian faith and discipleship.
The Children’s Christian Nurture Committee seeks to nurture the spiritual development of children and their families. We want every child to know of God’s love for them, to know that their church loves them and to experience being a contributing member of their church family. As a committee we strive to provide resource support to all members who work with our children and also to parents as they seek to raise their children in faith. We aim to be a mission to the community through the Early Education Center.
The vision of the Youth Christian Nurture Committee is to provide fun, exciting, spiritual, and inclusive programs for passionate youth to grow together in Jesus Christ by communicating the gospel of Jesus Christ through both words and actions.
