Zooming Lunch with Your Pastor
Don’t forget- all First Pres members are invited to join Pastor Patrick for lunch every Tuesday at noon for Zooming Lunch with Your Pastor. There is no agenda but for me to see your smiling faces and visit a while during our lunch break.

With the increased number of storms this season, we would like to encourage you to sign up to be a Commuter Volunteer. This is a way for you to be part of a team that can respond in the aftermath of a storm. With the COVID-19 pandemic the normal channels of assistance will not be able to respond, so we need your help to meet the needs of our communities all over the state.
