From the Director of Music Ministries

The Music Ministries of First Presbyterian Church has a tradition and history of excellence. The music program includes choirs for children, youth and adults as well as a concert series. Our magnificent Ruffatti pipe organ leads the congregational singing each Sunday morning creating an inspirational worship experience. There is a place for you in our music program and I hope you will take the time to look at all the opportunities available.
