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.
