The Presbyterian United Church of Christ invites you to join us for worship, study and fellowship.

The Presbyterian United Church of Christ was formed on October 23, 1966 when two congregations, the First Presbyterian Church and the St. John’s United Church of Christ joined together to worship. We are governed by Presbyterian polity. Wherever you are in your spiritual journey there is a place for you at Presbyterian United Church of Christ.

  • Each week we offer a full range of opportunities for worship.
  • Bible Study and fellowship are offered for all ages.
  • Children’s Chapel is offered September through May after the children’s time in the worship service.
  • Chancel Choir meets Wednesday evenings at 7:00 p.m., September through May.

Persons may enter into active church membership by profession of faith, reaffirmation of faith in Jesus Christ or transfer of certificate from another church. A faithful member accepts Christ’s call to be involved responsibly in the ministry of the church. Periodically a class is offered to acquaint people with the church. Please call the church office for more information.

Finally, beloved, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is pleasing, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. Keep on doing the things that you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, and the God of peace will be with you. Philippians 4: 8-9 ... See MoreSee Less

There is something incredibly encouraging about reading God's words to God's people about gardens and new life during the season of autumn.

"… God will turn her desert into an Eden and her wastelands into the garden of Yahweh. Joy and gladness will be found in her, thanksgiving and the sound of music." Isaiah 51: 3

God is not finished working in this world. God is still working in and through the church. Take heart and be about God's business today and everyday!

We walk by faith.

In a mother’s womb, two twins were chatting. “Do you believe in life after delivery?” “Of course. There has to be something after delivery. Maybe we're only here to prepare ourselves for that.” “Nonsense. There's no life after delivery. What kind of life would that be?” “I don’t know, but there will be more light than here. Maybe we'll walk with our legs and eat from our mouths. Maybe we'll have other senses we can’t understand now.” “That's absurd. Walking is impossible. And eating with our mouths? Ridiculous! The umbilical cord supplies nutrition and everything we need. Cut that, and it's all over.” “Well I think there is something and maybe it’s different than it is here. Maybe we won’t need the cord anymore.” “Fantasy. What's more, if there is life, then why has no one ever come back? Face it. Delivery is the end of life, and in the after-delivery there's only darkness, silence and oblivion. It takes us nowhere.” “Maybe, but at the very least we'll meet Mother and find out what it's all about.” “Mother? You actually believe in Mother? That’s laughable. If Mother exists then where is She now?” “She's all around us. We're surrounded by her. We're of Her. It is in Her that we live. Without Her this world would not, and could not exist.” "I don’t see Her, you don't see her. She doesn’t exist.” “Sometimes, when we’re in silence and I focus and really listen, I can feel Her presence, and hear Her loving voice, calling down from above.” - Adapted from a piece by Hungarian writer Útmutató a Léleknek With thanks to Ziporah Bank and Barefoot College
