Following the retirement of our former minister, First Presbyterian Church will be looking for its next minister in the months to follow.  Please keep our congregation in prayer as we discern who will be the next minister at FPC!

Allison Shaw, our Christian Education Coordinator, is a native of Portland, Oregon.

Passionate about children’s ministry, Allison has been involved with Sunday School for over 40 years, teaching everything from nursery-age to high school. Beyond teaching, she enjoys reading, sewing, drawing and crafts.

Allison is excited about channeling her deep love for the Lord into teaching young minds and hearts about Jesus and His deep love for them, as well as inspiring others to teach.

She would love to meet your kids in our Kids’ Ministry hour on Sunday mornings for an exciting, fun-filled time of learning more about the Lord Jesus and the wonderful plans He has for their
lives. Come join us!

Allison lives in Dresden with her husband, Rev. Paul D. Shaw (retired). Together, they raised 3 children.
