Wide Awake Worship
Our 8:30 a.m. Wide Awake service is infused with life through the gifts of our Wide Awake Band and contemporary worship music.
Our 10:30 a.m. traditional Sanctuary service is filled with the sounds of our skillful choir and the robust rich sound of the C. B. Fisk pipe organ, Op. 98.
The Choir School of First Presbyterian Church begins vocal training when a child enters the 2nd grade. Choir School training continues through high school. There are many opportunities beyond learning to read music and tune matching skills when participating in The Choir School. Choir School children and youth enjoy attending summer music camps, performing in special concerts, leading the congregation in Sunday morning worship, and the comradarie that comes with being in The Choir School program. Contact Director Robert Nicholls through the church office to arrange an audition or to get more information.
The Choir School of First Presbyterian Church is affiliated with the Royal School of Church Music in America (RSCMA) and gives children and adults unique experience in the English Cathedral Tradition.
Our handbell choir is made up of children and youth from elementary school to high school. Children begin in the 2nd grade by learning how to play handchimes.

The Flute Choir brings together flautists of every age and ability in an ensemble that leads the worship of God's people. From celebratory sounds to reflective melodies, the Flute Choir adds to worship.
