The Big Picture

The Church
The First Presbyterian Church of Hanford is proud to be a steadfast church in the heart of our community, since the mid 1870’s.  We have seen many challenges and trials over the long life of our church, but take great pride in being a multi-generational church which is welcoming to all ages.  Over the past two decades key growth of membership for our church has come from the nearby Naval Air Station, Lemoore, where young families have been joining our church with great participation and a strong desire in serving our Lord and Savior.  Although our pastors have had life events over the past two years our church members are eager and excited to welcome a new pastor who will help guide our congregation in the coming years making disciples of Jesus Christ who go and make disciples of others.
