Welcome to First Presbyterian Church, which is located in downtown Decatur but draws its congregation from throughout the county. All 480 members are encouraged to take part in worship as lay leaders, greeters, musicians, and ushers.
First Presbyterian Church of Decatur is committed to loving witness to the church and community that all are welcome to worship, serve and share talents, passions and struggles. It is the nature of God’s grace that we extend compassion and acceptance with a hospitable heart. It is our vision and desire to grow and build relationships with all of God’s people where there are no boundaries of age, race, culture, socio-economic status, ethnicity, gender or sexual orientation.
If you are seeking a place to call home, our hearts and doors are always open.
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.
