By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another. John 13:35

 

Welcome to 1st Pres

God wants us to experience His amazing Love. That’s why He wants us to be in relationship with Him, and with others. That’s what heals us, and strengthens us, and gives our life purpose and joy. But we can only do that when we spend time with Him, and with His people. It’s through His people that we experience God’s love, and it’s through us that God pours out His love upon others.

That’s why it’s so important to find a church you can call home. With a supportive, encouraging environment where you can experience His love and learn to grow in it; a place where you can discover your gifts and the unique purpose God has for you; and most of all, a place where you can share His love with others.

This is what discipleship is all about, and that is what it means to be a Christian. We invite you to come experience all this with us at 1st Pres. Below are answers to common questions visitors have, but if there is anything else you would like to know, please do not hesitate to contact us – we are happy to help you!

 

We have two Sunday morning services at 9am and 11am located in our Sanctuary.
At First Pres CDA, we try to cultivate a “come as you are” type of atmosphere. Whether you like wearing jeans and a T-shirt or a full suit, dress how you feel comfortable!
Our worship is a blend of traditional and contemporary styles. Our contemporary worship team is led by guitar and our hymns are generally led by the pipe organ.
The nursery, for newborn through two years old, is open from 8:30 a.m. to around 12:30 p.m. Children from three years old to 5th grade join their parents for worship. Then they are dismissed to their classes.

Youth from 6th to 12th grade meet at 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. in our youth room.
