Mental Health


In response to COVID-19 and out of concern for your health, all FPC experiences are online at this time. Until further notice, the church building is closed. Although we are not together in person, we will gather virtually to worship, care for and encourage one another, and to grow in faith together.

The First Presbyterian Church mental health team was developed in hopes of promoting and investing in the emotional, social, and spiritual well being of our members. We have formed to not only create an awareness of mental health but to highlight opportunities, reading, classes, etc. that might be helpful to each of you on your own personal walks through life's challenges. It is our privilege to walk on this journey with you.
