First Presbyterian is an active church that helps individuals and families grow in the grace and love of Jesus Christ.
We offer a variety of programs for individuals and families and are large enough to offer an array of activities and ministries, but small enough to know each of our members personally. We would love for you to call our church "home."
This website only covers selected highlights so we encourage you to contact the church office at 304 727-2241, stop by, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions or particular areas of interest. Our main message to you is...WELCOME!

Christmas Basket Update
On December 21, forty families of 113 individuals were provided with two boxes of staples and special items for a Christmas meal including a boneless turkey breast. Thanks to a generous donation from the Dennison family, they also received two bags of fresh vegetables, fruit and eggs. We received donations totally $3,165 which adequately covered the expenses of $2,922.42. The average basket cost was roughly $73.00 with baskets for larger families valued a little higher. Thanks to the donation of produce the actual value of each basket was increased by $10-$15. I want to thank Abbie and Mel Burch, Etta Clark, Connie and Buck Ivy, Pastor Doug Jenkins, Kathleen Jordan, Sarah Kell, Mike Merguc, Andi Pease, Jack Rogers and Debbie Speidel who helped with phone calls, pickup and delivery of the food from Kroger to the Church, packing the boxes, distribution and delivery. It takes many hands to pull this off, and I am grateful for their time and effort.
THANKS SO MUCH FOR YOUR GENEROSITY IN DONATING TOWARD THIS IMPORTANT PROGRAM! THIS CONGREGATION HAS A HISTORY OF SUPPORTING IT, AND YOUR CONTRIBUTIONS PROVE THIS TO STILL BE A WORTHY CAUSE.
