Our upcoming worship gatherings are…

Worship with Communion, Sunday, June 2, 2024, 9:30 am—We welcome all to gather in the Sanctuary or remotely via Zoom.  If you will be attending via Zoom, please note:

  • The “virtual” doors for worship (i.e. we’ll let people in from the waiting room) beginning at 9:25 am when our gathering music begins.
  • If you will only have audio, we encourage you to keep a copy of the order of service handy, so that you will have the words for unison prayers and hymns.
  • Gather some bread and a cup (of whatever is common to your house) so we may share communion together. Christ will bless whatever we gather and share at our tables, just as Christ blessed the common bread and cup at the table with the disciples long ago.

First Presbyterian Church is committed to accessibility and inclusion, including providing various resources to assist worshippers of all ages as an intergenerational community. Please contact us with any questions or requests.

Special Graduation Blessings

Celebrating our children and young people as they grow is one of the greatest joys we have as a church family. Accordingly, on May 26, it was a great gift to celebrate the many graduates in our extended First Presbyterian Church family and to celebrate one special graduate in particular—our own Emily Van Ausdal! With confetti, noise makers, cake and a beautiful blanket from the church family, we wrapped Emily in blessings for her continued adventures!

Joyful and Prayerful Welcome of New Class of Church Officers

God gifts all people for service and part of the joy of the church is affirming people’s God-given gifts and praying for them as they take on the mantel of leadership in our family of faith. Per our annual tradition, on May 19, we held our service of ordination and installation for our new class of deacons and elders who are entrusted with the leadership of our family of faith. It was a wonderful time to come together in faith to ask God’s particular blessing and leading to be with our officers, but also to affirm our commitment to support them and follow where they lead. Thank you all for your service!

Collaboration with Local Schools Continues to Grow

We had another wonderful year of collaboration with our local schools. For the second year in a row, we were able to support the Prairie Pals mentoring program and Hudson Prairie Elementary, helping to double the size of the program from the inaugural year. It was a joy to end the year with our second annual ice cream social. Moreover, it was a blessing to expand our collaboration to the English Language Learners (ELL) program at Hudson High School, providing numerous volunteers to tutor students and helping to host a graduation party for senior students in the ELL program.
