First and Best

Proverbs 3:1-10


Please join us at 8:30 a.m. in the Sanctuary with Holy Communion or at 10:55 a.m. in the Sanctuary.  Rev. Dr. Robert Shettler will be preaching. Nursery care is available from 9:15 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. for families attending worship.


The television broadcast of our worship service will be on a one week delay each Sunday from 10-11 a.m. on WMYG Cox Channel 11, part of the GTN family of affiliates. Live streaming audio of our worship service is available on our website www.1stpc.org; click the play button under Live Online Service.

A Call for Ushers: If you would be willing to lead worship by welcoming members and guests to our doors and collecting the offering during worship, we would love to teach you how to be an usher. We are in need of ushers on both a regular and substitute basis especially on the January, May, September team. Please talk to or email Laura Montgomery if you are willing and able.

Summer Choir: It's not too late to join Summer Choir - May 19 through July 7. Rehearsals will be held on Sunday mornings from 9:30–10:40 a.m. in the choir room immediately preceding worship. Well aware of summer schedules, it is not necessary for members of the summer choir to be present every summer Sunday. The anthems are selected to match the abilities of those in attendance. For more information, contact Mark Coffey.

Vacation Bible School: We hope you will send your kids on an impacting island adventure this June 3-7 from 9:30 a.m.-12 p.m. each day! Church members AND non-members are welcome so invite your friends and neighbors to join us! The cost is $15 per child and scholarships are available. You will find our registration packet in Gordon Hall or on the Christian Education page of the church website. A notary available is in Gordon Hall after worship on Sundays. Questions? Contact Vicki Sumner.

Free parking is available in our big lot on Second Avenue, in the grass lot just to the east of the big lot, and behind the Salon Syx building to the west of our lot.
