A worship service at First Presbyterian Church would not be complete without music from one of our many talented and dedicated choirs. The Music Ministry is lead by Rev. Barbara Piercy and supported by Mr. Noel Piercy, Associate Director of Music. If you are looking for a church home where music is an integral part of what goes on, look no further!
