First Presbyterian Church in the 1990's

The Rev. Tom Stixrud resigned as pastor on December 31, 1990. The church decided to adopt the Designated Term Pastor program on February 17, 1991. The Rev. Duncan Page was hired as Temporary Supply.

As of January 1991 the church adopted the unicameral system and eliminated the office of Deacon.

A major renovation of the manse was started in April 1991. Benoit Glover was hired to do the work, with volunteer labor from members of the congregation.

The Rev. Duvall was installed on January 12, 1992. During his pastorate the floor of the sanctuary was replaced. The original church bell was returned from Sweeny and now hangs in the church yard.

The Rev. Duvall took a leave of absence owing to illness beginning June 1997, and resigned in December 1997. The Rev. Don Trent served as interim pastor.

On April 1, 1999, the Rev. Mike Pentecost was called to be pastor of First Presbyterian Church. He was installed on May 9, 1999. During his pastorate the church parlor was remodeled with bunk beds to allow families to stay overnight. This facility was used for the prison ministry, allowing out-of-town families of prisoners to visit without incurring the cost of a motel.
