Our Philosophy of Care

As Christians, we are invited (or commanded) to love and serve our neighbors. At First Pres we provide care to the congregation and community through a number of dedicated ministries. Our pastors and trained lay leaders visit hospitals. We take communion to homebound members. We schedule luncheons in retirement facilities. We listen and pray when you are hurting and in distress. Just as Jesus commanded Peter to carry on His ministry of  ‘tending the sheep’, we strive to ‘tend’ to the spiritual, emotional, and physical needs in our congregation and community.
