Welcome to First Presbyterian Church, which is located in downtown Decatur but draws its congregation from throughout the county. All 480 members, regardless of age or gender, are encouraged to take part in worship as lay leaders, greeters, musicians, and ushers.

Mission, ministry and music are the common threads woven together at First Presbyterian Church. People of many backgrounds interweave their many talents to bring exciting life to our congregation. Musical talents play a major role in the rich diversity of our programs. All ages are also provided with opportunities for education and fellowship. Church school classes and adult education programs teach us the Good News of the Bible while soup suppers, potlucks, workdays, retreats, walkathons, to name just a few, bring us together to share in the Good News and to spread it to others.

Our congregation is a family that worships and prays together inside and outside the church walls.

  • We actively witness beyond ourselves through our common ministries.
  • We share in the joy of birth and the sorrow of death.
  • We care for and visit those with physical illnesses; we counsel and pray for those emotionally burdened.
  • We celebrate all aspects of God's gifts and use them to build a strong church family.
