FirstPres Anderson

Welcome to Christian fellowship at First Pres! What a blessing it is to gather in God’s name to explore and celebrate his presence in our lives. Throughout the year we offer many opportunities for you to join your church family in fun events designed to enhance your faith journey. Most of our events are multigenerational, as we have much to learn from each other! Watch for take-home and in-person opportunities.

Check the First Word monthly newsletter and this Events page for future Faith Formation gatherings. Contact Alisa Gibson with questions and suggestions about upcoming events.

When two of you get together on anything at all on earth and make a prayer of it, my Father in heaven goes into action. And when two or three of you are together because of me, you can be sure that I’ll be there.”

Matthew 18:19-20
