Small Groups

The Small Groups of First Presbyterian Church are open to anyone – from any church, or no church!  Are you looking for a safe, supportive place to share and explore your needs, concerns, and hopes?  We’re here for you!  Our small groups are committed to unconditional love and complete confidentiality: “what’s said here stays here”!


People come to small groups with all kinds of questions:  “Do other people struggle with what I do?  Can I find a greater sense of love, peace, and hope in my life?   Or am I stuck like this?   What does God have to do with it all?   Does prayer really make any difference?  Is Christianity boring, or is there more to it all than I thought?”.   No questions are out of bounds!  In small groups we seek answers as we study the scriptures, listen to one another, laugh and cry together, and pray for one another.  We would love to include you on this journey!  For meeting times and group topics contact Rev. Dr. Jim Tilley, 562-7053.
