Welcome to First Presbyterian Church

Whether you are here to join in worship, find community, explore online resources, or serve God, we are glad the Spirit led you to this place! We hope to connect with you and explore together how God is calling you to be part of this loving and supportive community. Whether you are new to the church or grew up in the faith, know that we are excited to welcome you! 

First Presbyterian Church offers two traditional worship services at 8:30 and 11:00 am (Our Communion service takes place at 11:00 am on the first Sunday of every month) and several opportunities for spiritual growth and fellowship for all ages. If you can’t make it in person, you can join our morning worship offerings online on our website. 

We are a member of The Presbyterian Church (USA) and strive to be a welcoming community of faith where all who seek to follow Christ have a place to serve and belong regardless of political views, socio-economic status, race, background, gender, or sexual orientation. We believe that we are freely loved and accepted by God. Therefore, we offer our love and acceptance to all people.

Additional Information

On any given Sunday the music will be led by our chancel choir, directed by Mr. Seth Lafler. Dr. Sabrina Adrian is the church organist and plays the grand Jehmlich organ you see at the front of the Sanctuary. Together, these two talented musicians help to bring the worship music to life. Often they will invite local and visiting guest musicians that adds to the beautiful congregational music at First Presbyterian Church.
The Sunday morning worship services are usually about an hour.
Wear whatever makes you comfortable. Some men wear suits, others wear slacks and golf shirts. Some women wear dresses, others wear slacks and blouses. We’re just glad you’re joining us!
No. This is not our table; this is Christ’s table! All baptized men, women and children are invited to celebrate the sacrament. Communion is celebrated on the first Sunday of each month at both services.
Children of all ages are welcome in worship! There are special children’s worship bags in the narthex with activities associated with the Sunday worship service. Childcare is available for infants through children who are in Kindergarten. The childcare room for infants and children up to age 3 is in room 106 (the yellow room), which is located at the back of the Education Building. Children age 3 through Kindergarten are cared for in room 504 of the Family Life Center. Many of our young children participate in worship until after the Conversation with Children. After that, one of our parent volunteers or our Director of Children’s Ministries will meet the children in the narthex and take them to the appropriate room for extended care until worship service is over. Parents may pick up their children after worship, but please let us know if someone other than you will be picking up your child.
You may park on Jefferson Street in front of the church, on Earl Garrett Street or Washington Street (on opposite sides of the church), or in the back parking lot which gives you easy access to the Education Building and the Family Life Center.

You can call the church office at 830-257-3310 or fill out a Visitor card located in each pew. Place the completed card in the offering plate or hand it to an usher, pastor or elder. The elders gather at the chancel each Sunday. Feel free to speak to any of our staff during the week. They’re here for all of us!
