ESCANABA — First Presbyterian Church, located at 819 1st Ave. S. in Escanaba, is pleased to announce a new pastor to the pulpit.

Pastor Kyle Segars and his wife Melanie, arrived in Escanaba in late August. Kyle is a graduate of Columbia Theological Seminary, earning a Master of Divinity and Master of Theology degree. Melanie is a graduate of Bible college, and is from the town of Cagayan de Oro, on the island of Mindanao, in the Philippines.

Segars previously pastored churches in Arizona, Lower Michigan, and North Carolina before coming to Escanaba. He considers himself a “Christian educator pastor,” and he and Melanie feel blessed by God to be in Escanaba to deliver strong, scripture based preaching to the area. The Segars are enjoying their new surroundings and adjusting to life in the beautiful Upper Peninsula.

Sunday services at First Presbyterian Church are Sundays at 10:30 a.m.
