"Bear one another’s burdens, and in so doing, fulfill the law of Christ.” (Galatians 6:2) Our goal is to demonstrate Jesus’ compassion, providing encouragement through visits, scripture, prayer, and linking those who hurt to resources where they can find healing.  Because we believe a relationship-based approach to Care reflects God’s design for church and community, we desire that every friend and member of First Presbyterian Church will both give and receive care as needs arise.   

Rev. Lana Roberts




Chaplains -  Our chaplains are Rosemary Avery, Susan Glover, and Pastor Paul Armstrong.  Among them, these skilled caregivers attend to those with the highest levels of ongoing need, respond to emergencies, pray with people before surgeries, and walk faithfully with those who are in their last days.  Volunteering alongside Rosemary, you will often find Bob Avery, also a skilled and faithful caregiver.
