How can I Join?

What is the first step?

To join First Presbyterian, a prospective member should attend On Ramp, a class for anyone who wants to join First Presbyterian or learn more about the life, history and beliefs of the Presbyterian church and this congregation.  The class is led by Senior Pastor Rev. Tony Sundermeier and is comprised of the following parts

when is the next class?

On Ramp Express meets on a Sunday afternoon following the 11:00 worship service. The remaining dates for 2020 are below.

  • Sunday, June 7
  • Sunday, September 20
  • A discussion of your Faith Journey and what led you here to First Pres.
  • The history of the Presbyterian Church and the history of First Pres.
  • The meaning of Membership – what we hope you will contribute to this church community and, in turn, what you are seeking from your church home.

After completing the On Ramp class, you will be invited to attend a Session dinner where you will meet the current Ruling Elders of the church. Following your introduction, you will be asked the qualifying questions of membership, and then the Elders will vote on your membership. You will be introduced to the Congregation on a Sunday morning following this dinner.
