Service Opportunities
As we experience Holy Week, it is a great time to reflect, make new efforts, and demonstrate our gratitude for our blessings through care and service toward others. Under the direction of the Deacons, a CARE team has been created. To learn more about this and other service opportunities, check out the many options we have posted on our Ways to Help page.
 Featured Artist in the Lounge
Artist in the Lounge:  Anthony Holt, a new member, and high school senior has shared his photography interest with us.  The subject matter is churches and architecture. Anthony is also in the choir, can be found playing the organ, and directing the Bell Choir. He also is a FPC Deacon. Be sure to notice the exhibit.
3B SPRING Session

Join the Handbell Choir
Yes! It's true! First Presbyterian Church HANDBELL CHOIR is back! We enjoyed ringing out joyful sounds with our beautiful set of handbells along with our wonderful congregation singing last month. Anthony Holt and Chancel Choir director, Nic Orbovich are directing and organizing the rejuvenated ensemble. We extend a hearty and warm invitation to ANYONE who might be interested in joining this wonderful and unique group. If you think you'd like to "ring in" some good cheer, please talk to Anthony or Nic. Rehearsals for February will be Thursday the 6th & 20th at 5:30 P.M., in the undercroft.
Good Timers Music Group 
We are in the process of forming a group of active seniors who enjoy music from the 20’s, 30’s, 40’s and 50’s. The music will be provided by “Herman’s Golden Memories.” There will be singing, DJ song requests, dancing, you can participate if you like, or just sit, listen and enjoy the music, food and good company. There is no charge. We will get together from time to time. The date(s) and location(s) will be determined once the group is formed. If you or anyone you know is interested, please call Herman Lehman (number available in the Directory or through the Church Office).
Missional Transformation: Discovering God's Dream
The Church has a divine calling, and its life and purpose are not its own.
The church exists to discern and participate in God’s mission.
That is why we have embarked on this journey with other churches in the Presbytery of Wabash Valley. For more information and to learn our timeline for this journey, please click here.
Our Heritage
Shirley Ryan, church historian, has been working on a new exhibit in the Heritage Room, on the west side of the narthex. This exhibit highlights the various places we have held worship services during construction, renovation, and fire repair. Also, showcased are the many and various Women’s Association activities over the years. Stop in before or after worship or any other time to enjoy our rich heritage.
