Central to our church life are our worship Services and Sunday School classes. We supplement these programs with Special Events, outlined in both our weekly calendar and The Lamplighter, our monthly newsletter.


As required by the Book of Order, our church is governed and administered by our dedicated Staff, Elders, and Session Committee.


Stewardship and community responsibilities fostering fellowship, growth, and service are carried out under the direction of Men's Ministries, PW Presbyterian Women, and Deacons. Committees for Christian Education, Evangelism & Membership, Stewardship & Mission, Trustees, and Worship guide our church.


Blackwell's First Prebyterian Church offers Christian education, Bible study, and life lessons for members of all ages through our Sunday School, Youth 1st-7th, and Youth-High School programs. Our Music activities are an integral part of all of our services and programs.
