Feel free to swing in and chat with us at anytime. We love to have visitors.
We are a congregation of the Presbyterian Church (USA), the largest, mainline Presbyterian denomination. This connects us to Reformed theology and history, describes our distinctive pattern of government, and extends the reach of our ministry by being part of a larger Missional Denomination.
We love hearing from you. Feel free to email us whenever you have a question or comment about anything that is going on around here. You can email about anything. Need to know more about our ministries? Or need to connect with the Pastor? Give us a shout!
WHY WE EXIST
We exist to build healthy relationships with other believers. We want to build a community that anyone can rely for a helping hand. We do our very best to build a family atmosphere here at First Pres. When you walk through our doors you automatically become family.
We exist to serve others. It is our goal to go outside the walls and serve our community. We hope that when you join our family that you will carry the same ideals with you. We exist not only for our own self interests but the interests of others.
GROW CLOSER TO GOD
We exist to serve and grow closer to God. This is our soul purpose here at Isaiah Church. It is our hope and mission that through our services and ministries that you are given the tools to build a better relationship with Christ.
WHAT TO EXPECT
What can I expect on my first visit?
If you come on a Sunday Morning you can expect to see people of every age. People will be dressed in everything from jeans to suits! There is a Welcome Center Desk in the front lobby beside the Sanctuary. Infant and toddler nurseries (under 2 years) begin at 8:30am and continue until 12:30pm. Worship begins at 9:00am and again at 11:00am. Sunday School classes for children, youth and adults begins at 10:00am. You can expect high energy, traditional worship and a warm welcome!
When should I arrive?
It is more important that you come, than when you come! Parking is convenient with handicapped spaces clearly marked on both sides of the Sanctuary. If you arrive in our parking lot 10 minutes before the services begin (at 9:00am and 11:00am), you will have plenty of time. If you have small children and would like to take advantage of our well-staffed and nicely appointed nurseries, then come a few minutes earlier. Nursery staff will give you a beeper so that they can contact you if necessary, should your child need you during worship.
What will people be wearing?
We are a place that values your presence more than we judge what you are wearing! It is more important that you come, than how you are dressed! However, the majority of First Presbyterian worshippers are dressed in their Sunday best, putting their best foot forward to worship God. Men come in everything from suits to jeans. Women wear slacks or skirts/dresses.
Where do I take my children?
During worship there are nurseries for infants through 3 year old children. Four and five year olds stay in the service until after the children's message. At that time they are taken to child care until the service is over. All other children are encouraged to remain in the worship service with their parents. We believe that children learn to worship by participating in worship.
If you arrive for Sunday School at 10:00am on Sunday mornings offering a Christian learning experience for everyone from 3 year olds all the way to our oldest members!
If you come during the School Year on Wednesday Nights for LEGOZ OR LOGOS - Everyone is invited to come and to eat dinner together (see the newsletter and Calendar for schedule of events).
Are there classes and events for my preteens and teenagers?
Do I have to be a member of First Presbyterian to take Communion?
All who acknowledge Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior are welcome to take Communion.
