Who We Are

Our church seeks to be a doorway through which God works to make disciples of Jesus Christ. In this church, we experience Christian community as we walk our spiritual journey with others. As disciples, we are strengthened by God’s Spirit to live out God’s love in word and deed.

First Presbyterian Church is part of the Presbyterian Church (USA) and we are a congregation in the Presbytery of Northern New England (PNNE).

We Welcome All People

We hope that you will feel both inspired and welcome as you come into our space!

Come with your questions and you concerns.

Come with your certainty and your doubt.

Come with your joy and your sorrow.

Come and find God here.

All genders, ages, races, theological perspectives and sexual orientations are welcome at our church.
