5.  Why is does the sign in front say First Christian Church?
Because we have been welcomed by the First Christian Church to share their church building.  After over 60 years of ministry at 1801 Second Ave, First Presbyterian Church has embarked on a new adventure.  Much like the ancient Israelites set out into the wilderness to follow God’s call, so too has this body of believers entered into the ‘wilderness’ in order to seek God’s will for God’s church.  Until we erect a more permanent ‘tent’ in the future, F.P.C. are sharing a temporary location with our brethren at First Christian, at 2525 Second Avenue… just down the street from our previous location.  This is an exciting time in this church’s long history… Come and join the journey!
