Immigration Day Special Worship Service

Refugees are forced to flee their country of nationality as they are under threat and it is not safe for them to remain. We are standing with our refugee neighbors as they seek safety and security.

We are standing for welcome!

This service will feature, special music, performances and stories from immigrants in our congregation.

In this age of our government tearing apart refugee families, the First Presbyterian Church is proud of our efforts to re-unite families. In conjunction with PRIME immigration services and money raised by our Mission Committee, we were able to assist one of our immigrant families with legal services and travel expenses to bring their son over from Liberia.

Lunch with Santa

This is an annual tradition for all our children.  All families are invited to join the lunch with Santa by making a reservation with Carmella Kane or a member of the Mission Committee.  Please indicate to Carmella the name, age, sex of your child that will be in attendance and a suggestion for a small toy that Santa can present during the luncheon.  It is very important that Carmella has your reservation!!!  We don't want to have a child in attendance and not have a present from Santa for them, so please please please register.  

If you do not have children in your family unit, join us anyway for the fun.  We simply ask that you allow families to have first choice in seating so they can sit together as a unit at the luncheon.  Thanks for your cooperation.
