nh-becoming-member.jpg
First Presbyterian welcomes people of all ages and stages of life. Membership is open to all people who confess Jesus Christ as Lord. You can join the church in three ways:
  1. Profession of Faith and Baptism for people who have yet to be baptized.
  2. Reaffirmation of Faith – for people who are reconnecting to the faith and have already been baptized.
  3. Transfer of a Church Letter – for people who are active in another church and seeking a new church home.
When you are ready to join, you can fill out a membership card located in our pews or you may contact one of the pastors.

Connect

When Jesus founded the church, he did so by calling people together. Community is what makes the fabric of who we are as the church. First Presbyterian is good at loving one another, encouraging one another, and sharing joys and sorrows with one another in order that our community can grow and become strong. 

A few years ago we looked for a symbol we might use to best represent our church. The quatrefoil emerged as that symbol because it speaks to our heritage and our future. Particularly evident in gothic architecture, the quatrefoil is a representation of a cross. In our building you will find quatrefoils surrounding the sanctuary on the balconies and the organ, in the chandeliers, carved in the pulpit of the chapel, and within the ironwork of our banisters leading up to the narthex.

As the quatrefoil is a different kind of cross, First Presbyterian is a different kind of church. Within our community we are distinctive in the way that we worship, study, serve, and grow together as the body of Christ. The quatrefoil is a symbol that suggests harmony, symmetry, and balance. It is a symbol of inclusivity lacking hard edges. Likewise, the nature of belonging to First Presbyterian Church affords you room to explore the questions of faith and learn how that faith connects with the world around you. 

There are many ways to connect at First Presbyterian. Join us on a Sunday morning for Sunday School or worship, take part in one of our many outreach opportunities, find out about our small groups, enjoy one of our University of First Presbyterian courses, get your children or youth involved, or connect with one of our pastors. We look forward to seeing you!
