Take some time to look around…
I’m Pastor Mike. I’ve been the pastor of First Pres since 2006. After a summer in an Alaskan oil field, ten years in factories on the east coast, and four years at a Seminary in the mid-west, I finally got to the South. I came with my wife, Julia, and four kids. We now have seven children who are active in gymnastics, soccer, basketball, and reading (that’s us in the picture!).
You might like to learn about our current vision. We’ve summarized it with the slogan “Bringing the Bible to Life.” There’s also a section on how we got where we are today. We are connected to other churches in the Tennessee Valley and throughout the US as a member of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA). You can find links to helpful sites and some of our supported ministries under Resources & Links.
The best way to get to know us is to get to know the faces that make us who we are. Come to services and Sunday School, a monthly fellowship meal or a weekly Bible study (see the ‘Activities’ on the right for times). When you come, please look for me if I don’t see you first.
At some point you might consider coming to “Intro to First Pres.” It’s a class that offers an overview of who we are, what we believe, and what we are called to do.
In Christ alone,
Pastor, First Presbyterian Church
