The format is a small group and seminar model and Pastor Patrick will lead.  It is a wonderful opportunity to learn about First Pres, grow your spiritual depth, and get to know some new folks!  Even if you are not able to attend every session, please talk with Patrick or Michael and they will work it out accordingly. You can join the church in one of the following ways:
  • Profession of faith and baptism
  • Re-profession of faith
  • Transfer of your church letter from your old church
  • Affiliate membership
Some ask, “But why should I join a church?”  That is a fair question and the fair answer is twofold. First, it is a public statement of commitment that we make that declares, “God matters and I want my faith to take root here!”  Second, joining the community enables you to become more involved in the deeper layers of the church community and leadership. If you have been “dating” our church for awhile, we want to formally invite you to take the next step in the relationship and join our spiritual family.  First Pres has more than a hundred years of fabulous tradition that is just waiting for your particular Story to be added to it! You may call the church office at 386-734-6212 or email Patrick directly at and we will get you registered for the next Traditions group! Remember who you are! You are a child of the Almighty and Winsome God!  Proclaim the Good News right where you are and be the hands and feet of Jesus Christ to a broken and hurting world.
