Gatherings and Events
We offer a variety of opportunities for mid-size group gatherings. Please browse through the groups listed on the menu to the right to find the place that fits you best.
Americana Night—July 9, 5-8 p.m.
Invite family and friends to this all ages event at First Presbyterian celebrating some of the best of American music – bluegrass, jazz, show tunes, and folk music. Alongside the music will be a reading of Abraham Lincoln’s Second Inaugural Address and a delicious barbeque dinner. Dinner is free. Donations will be collected to support World Vision's work with hunger in East Africa (matching grants will increase gifts seven times!). This is a family-friendly event. Children welcome and childcare also provided.
Summer Concerts—3rd Thursdays in June, July & August
Arbor Crest hosts a concert and art exhibit every Thursday during this season. We’ve planned 3 informal gatherings on the 3rd Thursday each month to take part in these outdoor concerts while we have fellowship with one another. Music is performed 5:30-7:30pm.
