Thank you, Esther!


On behalf of the Personnel Committee and the Session, we thank the Reverend Esther Choi for her service to First Presbyterian Church as Interim Associate Pastor.

Since joining us in August of 2017, she has worked to align the Adult Ministries' programs into the scope and responsibility of the Director of Christian Education. She also guided the Outreach Task Force, which presented thoughtful and strategic recommendations to the Session this past June, including the hiring of a Director of Mission and Outreach for our church.

In addition to these accomplishments, Esther has preached many heartfelt sermons, provided care to our community, collaborated with staff and volunteers, and performed other Associate Pastor duties in her thoughtful manner.

Through her worship, study, prayer, and service to us, Esther has inspired us to have faith in Jesus Christ. She has nurtured us to be better disciples of Jesus Christ and to faithfully serve our community, which God loves. As a congregation, we pray for her continued witness to Jesus Christ.    

Please join us in thanking Esther for touching our lives at FPC! There will be a reception in the Fellowship Hall after the 11am worship service this Sunday.
