First Presbyterian Church of Boone 

"Called to Grow, Share, Serve"


Our Mission Statement
“A family of faith Called to Grow in the love of Christ,
Share that Good News, and Serve the world.”


Christian Education is an integral part of our lives here at First Presbyterian Church. During this season of distancing, it has been difficult for many folks to participate in Christian Education programming. We have created a one-stop site that highlight our Christian Education programs at And since we are always looking for new ways to help educate members and visitors alike, our church is financially underwriting what we consider to be one of the best kept secrets in Christian Education… Right Now Media.
What is Right Now Media?
We are inviting you to have a free account to an exciting video library called RightNow Media. It’s essentially the “Netflix of Video Bible Studies” because you will have instant access to thousands of great videos for kids, youth, parents, married couples and more. You can view these videos from your phone, tablet or computer. And you can also view them in a family setting through a TV or projector.
How can I get access to Right Now Media?
You may have noticed our new QR code icon in the Bulletin and/or the link in the newsletter. You can scan the QR code with your smart phone or follow this link to set up your very own account: Or to activate your account right from your cell phone, text “Rightnow FPCB” (the space between the 2 keywords is necessary) to 41411. And speaking of cell phones and Right Now Media, there’s an app for that! Simply follow this link to get an app for any of your mobile devices:
Still have questions about Right Now Media? You are welcome to contact Steve Marks for further information. He can be reached by e-mail at

Let Us Pray Together… Thursdays @ 10:00am
I invite you to join me for prayer on a weekly basis.  I will be hosting a Zoom prayer time on Thursdays at 10:00am.  This will be a time to share joys and concerns and to spend some time praying with one another, even if it’s just wordless groans!  If you are interested in participating please email Steve Marks – and let him know.  We will email you the zoom link information for you to join. 
This is open to anyone and there’s no pressure to pray out loud if you don’t want to.   For those whose schedules limit participation at this time, I encourage you to stop what you’re doing at 10:00am and to offer a prayer with us from where you are.  Let us continue to seek God daily, joining together to pray for one another and for our world.  I look forward to praying with you!
