Adults at First

At First Presbyterian Church of Pasadena, we want everyone to feel comfortable, accepted and loved.  The range of opportunities for adult growth in the faith here is wide. Through these activities we broaden our life experiences and become more aware of the joys God has given to us in our daily living. Some activities are meant for us to be still, while others require movement. Some invite quiet, while others encourage us to express our thoughts. Some ask us to serve, while others beacon us to be served. This is the kind of richness that brings life the flavor it was meant to have. Come join in with us in the journey of adult ministry.
Baywood Crossing is a nursing home in Pasadena close to our church facility. We go weekly and offer the residents an opportunity to worship through a special devotional and hymn singing time.
