Our Sunday morning service is a reformed liturgical style of worship with great emphasis on the word proclaimed from scripture, accentuated by excellent music through choral and handbell ensembles and enhanced by lay leadership. Our nursery is available for babies and toddlers younger than four. Kindergarten through third grade are invited to leave the Sanctuary at the appropriate time for Children's Worship.

We are pleased that you have chosen Grace First Presbyterian Church in which to celebrate your marriage and begin your life together. In the spirit of reverent worship, our congregation has adopted policies for the celebration of weddings in our church. It is our hope that the information contained in this pamphlet will be of assistance to you in the planning and conduct of your wedding in a spirit of joy and in accord with those policies.
The Sacrament of Baptism is the sign and seal of the covenant God has made with us in Jesus Christ. Our Christian identity begins in baptism, and in this sacrament we are marked forever as Christ's own. Baptism assures us of our cleansing from sin, of our participation in Christ's death and resurrection, and of our welcome into the household of God. We gladly celebrate baptism of infants, youth and adults in our worship services.
As the church embraces us in baptism and throughout our Christian life, so it stands ready to embrace us in death and comfort us with an assurance of eternity.
Our pastors are available to guide you and answer questions you have in planning for a memorial/funeral service. For more information, please contact the church office.
