The church is looking for someone who preaches Bible-based sermons, who relates them to every day life, and has a sense of humor.
First Presbyterian is called to make all feel welcome. We offer a Sunday School program for all ages, youth group, school release time classes. Website viewing is available for those unable to attend church services. Partnering with the local schools, we provide winter clothing items for needy children, and support the local food shelf. We offer our facility for community events such as ecumenical services and community concerts. Visits, pastoral care, and communion are offered to those in nursing homes or who are otherwise unable to attend church. We welcome new people to the community with a gift bag and invitation to our fellowship. Through participating in activities such as the community festivals and parades, Red Cross Bloodmobile, and serving an annual Soup/Dessert dinner, we do our part to keep our community strong.
We see the role of the pastor as guiding the congregation, teaching the Lord’s ways through preaching, offering pastoral care and teaching. The pastor would be someone who challenges the church to grow spiritually and in faith. Something important to the church is that the pastor has both the time and energy to visit our elderly, sick, and shut-in members while at the same time harbors a passion for engaging and involving the youth, helping to grow the church for the next generation. We value a quality speaker who follows Biblical values and lessons in their teaching and who engages members with deep and relateable sermons on Sunday mornings.
The person filling this position must believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God and apply the scripture to everyday life. The individual must have strong communication skills, deliver thought-provoking sermons, cultivate youth ministry and meet the needs of the elderly and shut-ins. We would encourage the pastor to be involved in the community. We would like this individual to be open to exploring contemporary services and music. We strive to find someone who is warm, personable, and caring. A good listener is valuable as is someone who can relate well to all age groups. A pastor with passion, a sense of humor, and zeal would be a great fit.
