Purple Donut Gang
The Purple Donut Gang is an “unorganized” group of men that perform maintenance tasks around the church on Tuesday afternoons at 1:00 p.m. for an hour or so followed by adjournment to Charlotte’s for coffee and donuts. Any man who can drink coffee (could be soda pop), eat donuts, and tell stories or solve the world’s problems is welcome. Listeners are welcome, we have plenty of talkers.
Life can get complicated once you cross that nebulous threshold into adulthood. There are complicated decisions. Bigger stakes. Serious relationships. And a whole lot more decisions. The young adult group of First Presbyterian provides a welcoming atmosphere for college and early-career aged young people. FPC offers our young adults grades 12th–college age group, dinner and Bible study Friday night from 5:30 p.m.–9:00 p.m. Every third Friday they have movie night at the First Presbyterian retreat on Perrysville Road.
New Edition is a younger fun group that plans fundraisers, sponsors movie nights, and much, much more.
The national organization now known as Presbyterian Women has been in existence under various names for over 200 years.
First Presbyterian's PW groups give the ladies in our church family special times of interaction. Our women’s groups, located in several locations throughout our community, are times of Bible study, prayer (and, of course, food). These groups provide a refreshing discipleship opportunity for the women in the church.

Once you get past fifty, the fun has just begun. Whether retired, just plain tired, or active as ever, the over-50 group of First Presbyterian provides refreshment, ministry, and times of valuable interaction. A mentoring ministry gives older believers a chance to meet and enjoy fellowship time. Our Primetimers group meets the third Wednesday of the month for small trips in the area and lunch. Times vary due to trip requirements.
Pastor’s Book Study
Often, small groups of people are better able to interact and learn about a topic than larger groups are. For that reason, First Presbyterian has small Bible or book studies held at the church. The size of the groups vary. The Pastor’s Bible/Book Study meets on Wednesday’s at 2:00 p.m.
If you like to knit, or crochet, or do craft projects, you are welcome to join us we meet Tuesdays at 12:30 p.m. for an hour, except for the second Tuesday of the month.
