Who We Are
     As with most successful organizations, our success is due mostly to our people and our vision. We are not large (yet), but our people are large in heart, determination, spirit, love, and service.
     We are guided by a small, elected group of our congregation called the Session. Our Pastor directs us spiritually and our Choir Director, Choir, and Music Director enhance our services with beautiful music. Our Church Secretary fulfills office and communications duties, our Sunday School Teachers teach Bible-based lessons, and our  Nursery Director ensures that young children learn about God's love by providing care and love while they are here.


Our Pastor

     Rev. Krista Rasco, is the pastor at First Presbyterian Church, in Commerce, TX.  She graduated from Austin College (Sherman, TX) in 2006 and from Union Presbyterian Seminary (Richmond, VA) in 2011.  This is her first call and she loves serving this congregation and community.  She  enjoys spending her free time with her daughter, Kaitlynn.  She also enjoys drinking wine, eating good food, working with ceramics/pottery, traveling, learning and reading.

Choir and music has been a focal point in the Maybank High School graduate's life. The first two years of his college education came at Trinity Valley Community College in Athens. He will receive a Bachelor's Of Music degree when he graduates from TAMU-C in the fall of 2020. His eventual goal is directing choir students at the high school level and earning a Master's Degree in Choral  Conducting.
