Lent and Holy Week

LENT 2018 at First Presbyterian Church
This season offers us the opportunity to prepare ourselves for both the death and resurrection of our savior which we remember on Good Friday and Easter. In the days of Lent, we are made ready to carry our own cross and given faith in the power of resurrection and new life. We at First Presbyterian Church will seek God’s guidance and direction in a variety of ways during this important season, as we come before God in repentance and prayer.
