First Presbyterian Church: Our Vision for Ministry
Our Vision for Ministry is to preach and teach the gospel, to build and nurture a community of believers, to reach out to our larger community, to lift up the poor and oppressed.
The Reverend Doctor Melinda Veatch is our Interim Pastor, beginning March 1, 2019. We value her experience in both congregational and community ministry. Please read more about her on the Worshiping page.
Jonathan Gorst, our Worship Arts Director and gifted musician, enriches our worship with his piano and organ playing and his leadership of the Kirk Choir. In addition, he plans and leads one worship service monthly. His gifts of music and drama enliven our worship. Every Sunday his prelude and offertory lift our spirits. Our congregation excels in singing, especially with Jonathan on the piano. Read his bio under Worshiping.
