Spiritual Growth

At First Presbyterian Church we know that one of our most important responsibilities is the spiritual growth of the lives we touch.  Through a variety of programming we seek to help participants become more present, conscious and connected to their souls resulting in a closer and more personal relationship with God.

Past Events

  • How God Changes Your Brain

    We offered a unique program on "How God Changes Your Brain – the Neuroscience of Religious Experience”

    Have you ever been swept away by a sunset, a piece of music, a speech, an event, a thought, or an inspiration? John Dull explored the advances in neuroscience that define the importance of transcendent experiences for overall health and for our understanding of humankind. Through song, patter and question, Dull shared about the literature, both mainstream and scientific, that delves into the neuroscience of inspired thinking.
