Develop.  Grow.  Strengthen.

Get to know more about our purpose.

Providing opportunities for people to develop relationships, grow friendships, and strengthen one another in life and faith as we participate in our favorite sports, hobbies and other forms of recreation and athletics. First Presbyterian’s Recreation Ministry strives to be a family affair. It is with this in mind that we hope everyone in your family will find opportunity for activity and fellowship. 
It is our purpose to provide a program for youth and adults that will attract people from the surrounding community and provide them with a warm and welcome introduction to the church, encourage church members and attendees to reach out to friends, family, and neighbors by inviting them to participate, and create an environment that is conducive to building relationships, discipleship, and fellowship.

Christian Youth
Basketball League

Through a program of Christ-centered athletics, the league provides the opportunity for each participant to develop his or her talents through a program that emphasizes Christian growth and deeper dedication to God and the church.
