Wednesday Night Series
During Lent and Advent we share dinner, then listen to speakers or participate in other activities. Topics vary. A nursery is provided for preschoolers.
A musical complement to Sunday worship that provides greater understanding of the Word and liturgy. Weekly rehearsals on Wednesday evenings give the opportunity for this adult group to prepare a wide variety of music for use throughout the year.
Girls' Night Out
An informal monthly gathering of First Pres women and their friends for dinner and fellowship.
Women's circles conduct Bible studies and support various mission projects such as the Johnson Auxiliary at the MED, Ronald McDonald House, Tools of Hope, Church Women United, Memphis Family Shelter, and The Soup Kitchen.
Every fall our church family spends a weekend together in the woods of Pinecrest Retreat Center. We learn and play together, performing skits, making art, playing games and reflecting on the Bible. The food and the fellowship are always wonderful. The weekend is capped off with worship on Sunday morning in Pinecrest's beautiful new woodland chapel, followed by brunch featuring homemade cinnamon buns.
"Reel 'Em In to Sunday School" Party
In August all families are invited to a lake house to kick off the new Sunday School year. There is kid-friendly worship outdoors on a deck, followed by fishing, swimming and boating. During this fun there is also a fish fry.
High school members and their friends meet together on Sunday afternoons for fellowship, fun and Bible study. This group joins with other youths for PYC events and travels to Montreat for a youth conference in the summer.
