Mission Statement    At the First Presbyterian Church of Holley, we are committed to:
...   providing a place for worship and sanctuary for all people
...   creating opportunities for spiritual growth, fellowship, and Christian development for people of all ages
...   being a close and connected church that is proactive and forward-focused
...   being good stewards of God's gifts, resulting in financial stability, good governance and inclusive, diverse                               congregation
...   walking in the way of Jesus by being caring and accepting toward each person, whatever their particular                                circumstances
...   being a force for good on local, regional and global levels

Session     The Session is the governing body of elders in the church.  Carol Lane is the Session Clerk.  

The Board of Deacons  give care to those who are lonely, dealing with health issues or having other difficulties in their lives. They  are also responsible for preparing the elements for Holy Communion each month and for providing Coffee Hour refreshments.
