With everyday examples and trademark testimonies, this series draws on Scripture to reveal how three key elements — awakening, honesty, and action — can produce the same kind of “AHA!” in our spiritual lives.

Max Lucado, using the Bible story of Joseph, verifies hope in You’ll Get Through This. - on display in library. Church School Update - Welcome to First Pres Church School! We are so glad you are able to join us today. We have two priorities: first, to give your children a biblical teaching that will open for them a window toward who God really is. And second, to have some FUN! We truly want them to associate God with a good time and a positive experience. There are nursery and church school programs in place for kids ages 3-13 that begin after the “children’s time” of the service. If you’d like to meet the leader or to get a feel for what your kids are doing, you are welcome to attend with your kids at that time. CALLING ALL YOUTH!! Grade 8 and Up We would love to have you join our team of operators and assist in our worship services to run the Easy Worship slides (projected on our screens) and/or operate the video camera. Please speak with Kenneth McAlpine if you are interested.
