The mission statement of our faith community:


Together, we worship God

through our

Study, Stewardship,

Service, and Song!


In 2017 we welcomed The Reverend Martha Pardee Carlson as our designated pastor. She serves as pastor to both First Presbyterian Church and to Bethlehem Presbyterian Church in a yoked relationship between the two churches. We also warmly welcomed her husband, The Reverend Edd Carlson, to be part of our faith community.

On July 1, 2018 we celebrated the first anniversary of Martha and Edd being with our churches. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!
We praise and thank God for sending us Martha to be our pastor and Edd to be a part of our church family. It has been a year of getting to know and love each other.


Worship begins at 9:30 a.m.

Join us for refreshments and fellowship following the worship service.
