If you’re a student at JMU, Bridgewater College, Eastern Mennonite University or Blue Ridge Community College, we are eager to meet you and be part of your college years. Whether you’ve grown up in church or are wondering what Christianity is about, you’ll find First Pres to be a place where you can learn, grow in your faith, meet other students and local residents, and enjoy time away from your studies. College students at First Pres engage in all aspects of our life together. We have lots of places where you can serve and grow. We have small groups, both inter-generational and college-student focused.
