Welcome to First Presbyterian Church

We know it takes a lot of courage to try a new place of worship, or dip your toe in the waters of faith with an already established community.

You might be wondering: What will the worship service be like?

The service begins as you enter the Sanctuary and prepare your hearts and minds for worship by greeting, sharing and laughing with one another. Or, you might choose to sit quietly and listen to the worship music. While both worship services follow the same basic order, each has a distinct character. Try each of them out and decide which is best for you.

Service times are 8:30 and 11:00 am each Sunday morning. We celebrate communion on the first Sunday of each month at both services. If you have any questions or concerns before or after visiting, please contact us so we can assist you in finding a spiritual home.

Where is the church located?

The church is located at 800 Jefferson Street, between Earl Garrett and Washington Streets, just one block east of Sidney Baker (Hwy 16).

The main Sanctuary is on the corner of Washington and Jefferson Streets. Most services are held in the main Sanctuary.

Historic Schreiner Chapel is on the corner of Earl Garret and Jefferson Streets.

Children’s Corner Preschool, the YES Center and the Family Life Center can most easily be accessed from the church parking lot with entrances on Earl Garret and Washington Streets.

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!
