Build Connections with Others



Jesus Christ invited people to be his friends and join his mission. Whether you have little or no experience in the Christian faith, or are well traveled on your journey, you are invited to consider membership at First Presbyterian Church (FPC).
Please contact a pastor, 252 243-3115, for more information.

FPC Welcome Class

If you are new to First Pres or just want to find out more about us, please join us for the FPC Welcome Class offered several times throughout the year on Sunday mornings.  We talk about such topics as “Being Presbyterian” and learn more about various ministries of education, music, mission and service.  This is a great way to connect to others who want to hear a bit more about what we do and why we do it.  Contact Ginger Jablonski, Visitor and Welcoming Team, at 252.292.8361 for questions or to learn more.  All are welcome!



Sunday School Connections 

Our hope is for every FPC participant to be actively involved in a spiritual growth opportunity in addition to worship.  FPC is a superb place to explore your faith – a place where questions about faith are welcome and we readily admit we don’t have faith all figured out.  Questions can be lived safely, passionately, and in the good company of fellow travelers. Whether you’re looking for practical spiritual tools to help you with life’s daily challenges, or inspiration to go deeper on your faith walk, FPC offers classes and studies to encourage you and your children.  Our Sunday school hour runs from 9:45 till 10:40 each Sunday of the school year and at the 9am hour during the summer.

Join a Team

We believe that God gives gifts (some might call them talents or skills) to each individual to use as we live in community, helping and supporting one another.  At FPC there are many ways to connect, use your gifts, and fulfill a purpose – if you laugh, cry, love, or worship along the way we won’t be surprised!  Find out how to serve by clicking here


Who We Are

Organized in 1885, First Presbyterian is a lively church with a long history.   First and foremost, we are a family of faith, a body of believers who have differing church backgrounds and come from a variety of places.  Still, we find common ground in our joint efforts to follow Christ as he calls us.  Denominationally, we are a member congregation of the Presbyterian Church (USA).  This places us in a heritage of churches who trace their roots to the Protestant Reformation of the 1600s.  In an even larger sense, though, we are part of and connected to the universal fellowship of believers who trust in God, acknowledging the powerful work of a Creator, professing faith in Christ Jesus as Lord and Savior, and trusting in the sustaining power of the Holy Spirit.  Presbyterian Church U.S.A.


What We Believe

Jesus Christ is the light of our lives and the light of this world.  Through Christ, we experience a new life – both on this side of death and beyond it.  We believe that this gift of Christ is a generous gift of a loving God and not the result of how we are, what we do or even how fervently we believe.

We affirm that we are not called to this new life independently, but that we are called to community of believers where we learn to lean on, listen to and hold each other accountable. You will notice a organizational structure that lacks bishops or levels of office. Instead, we elect our leadership and then prayerfully ordain them for tasks to which they feel called.  In worship you will hear us speak of God as Trinity – Father, Son and Holy Spirit, ancient language that affirms the depth and breath of God. You will see us share in time-honored sacraments of communion and baptism.

Church is changing. Denominational structures are shifting.  Still, Presbyterians in the 21st century have a vision of ministry that is vibrant, inviting, and reflects the love and justice of God. As we witness to the Good News of Jesus Christ throughout the world, Presbyterians engage in mission activities, work to alleviate hunger, respond to disasters, preach the gospel, heal the sick, educate new generations for the future, and seek to be good stewards of all of God’s gifts in creation.
