    The Mission Yearbook dates back to 1892 as a simple calendar of prayer to help women’s societies pray for missionaries on designated days. It has the longest history of any denominational mission and prayer book in the United States.
  • Going on vacation?  Did you know that you can set up your on-line giving so your pledge goes to the church even if you can't.  Click on the  big green pledge button and and set up your periodic giving. You can also direct a gift to any program.  Missions, music, youth programs, OGHS and the Deacon's Fund are just a few of the many programs that can use your gifts.
  • The Presbyterian Church (USA) is governed by its Book of Order. More than a mere "rule book," the Book of Order is a collection of wisdom, a statement of our church's values, and reasonable operating principles for how the church of Jesus Christ will do its work in the world. The Presbyterian Book of Order is available for downloading here.
