Weekly Devotion

Bear with one another and, if anyone has a complaint against another, forgive each other; just as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in the one body. And be thankful.

-Colossians 3:13-15

Will Appleby Award 2019
We're accepting nominations for the Will Appleby Award!
Will was an outstanding member of the youth group of First Presbyterian Church before tragically passing away in an automobile accident in 2001. He made youth group a priority and was an innovative force and loyal friend within the youth community. Will understood the goals and mission of the youth group and encouraged and inspired his fellow youth as well as many adults. In his honor, Will's family generously established this award to recognize other youth who share Will's love and dedication to the community of faith.
