What can I expect?
How long is a First CHURCH service?
In total, a First Church service is about 60 minutes in length.
Contemporary Services begin with our amazing praise band leading the church in music - song lyrics are projected onto the screens so you can sing along and/or engage with worship however you feel most comfortable. After the music portion of service is complete, our pastor will come out to share an encouraging and hope-filled message about Jesus.
Traditional Services are filled with your favorite hymns. We are very blessed to have an amazing music program. So you'll also often hear from one of our Bell Choirs, our beautiful Church Choir filled with many voices, or even one of our small groups, like the church Octet. And of course our pastor will share the message that Jesus is our Lord and Savior.
What's the culture like at First Church?
Sundays at FPCLS offers something for everyone. Our Contemporary Service is exciting, casual, and relaxed. Come as you are and expect to feel welcomed as our guest.
Traditional Service is for people who enjoy church in a classic setting. You don't need to be dressed to the nines, but it's a little more formal than our 9AM service.
What about my kids?
We believe that kids should have a blast at church every single week - and at First Church, we make this a priority. The other thing we make a priority is your children’s safety. Because of that, we have a detailed check-in process for our kids program the first time that you visit. You’ll want to leave yourself an extra ten minutes to get signed in for the child care. Child Care is offered at every First Church service for kids ages infant through Age 5.

"Honestly, I was a little anxious attending First Presbyterian for the first time...a little unsure of what to expect. I knew a few of the members there, so that made me comfortable. At least I knew SOMEBODY! But as soon as I walked through the front doors it felt like home."
