Who we are

About Us

We invite you to join us for a joyful celebration of our life in Christ through our traditional worship service on Sunday mornings at 10:30AM.

In addition, there are many opportunities to explore God’s word and its relevance to our lives through Bible study, fellowship, and community service.  Through these, we all grow in our faith and become better disciples of Jesus Christ.  We have no magic formula, just a God who loves us, a Savior who has redeemed us, people who can teach us, and those who are willing to walk with us on the road of life.  

We are located on Harbin Drive, right across from the Optimist Jaycee Park.

Glorifying God by making disciples
and reflecting God’s love in service to others!

All You Ever Wanted to Know About the Presbyterian Church

(But Were Afraid to ask)

Presbyterians trace their history to the 16th century and the Protestant Reformation. Our heritage, and much of what we believe, began with the French lawyer John Calvin (1509-1564), whose writings crystallized much of the Reformed thinking that came before him.

Calvin did much of his writing from Geneva, Switzerland. From there, the Reformed movement spread to other parts of Europe and the British Isles. Many of the early Presbyterians in America came from England, Scotland and Ireland. The first American Presbytery was organized at Philadelphia in 1706. The first General Assembly was held in the same city in 1789. The first Assembly was convened by the Rev. John Witherspoon, the only minister to sign the Declaration of Independence.
