Events

WELCOME TO EVENTS at First Presbyterian Church. This is essentially a Calendar page that displays the meetings and activities at the church. “Agenda” will allow you to set your calendar by the day, week, or month. “Category” will allow you to customize your calendar to show events in your area of interest. By default, the Events page shows a calendar of “Upcoming Events,” which showcases activities at the church while excluding regular meetings and classes. Note: It will also include some “regular” meetings when a special event such as a speaker is scheduled. Choosing “All Activities” from the category menu will bring up the complete church schedule.
