Regular worship services begin every Sunday at 11:00 am with praise and worship, followed by Pastor Jim Brackman’s empowered, spirit-filled teaching, based on the pure Word of God that is being brought to the faithful congregation of First Presbyterian Church and the ongoing flow of visitors and newcomers, bringing salvation, repentance and the recognition of Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior.
