Worship with Us

COVID-19 Protocols

PLEASE NOTE that we currently have pandemic safety procedures in place if you are joining us for in-person worship.  Please stay 6 feet away from everyone not in your group/pod and wear a mask at all times when you are indoors (unless you are in a room by yourself).  Masks are also required outside if maintaining social distancing is problematic.  We encourage everyone to wash their hands frequently.  At this time we have up to three singers in worship who are masked at all times and maintain 12 feet of social distancing.  We look forward to congregational singing again as soon as it is safe to do so.

What to Expect

We offer two, engaging traditional worship services every Sunday at 8:30am and 11am. Both services include scripture and preaching as well as unison prayers and hymns printed in the bulletin and on screen for our livestream congregation. We livestream our 8:30am service which always has communion and features our choral scholars and often guitar, mandolin, and flute.  Once COVID restrictions are lifted, our 11am service will once again be blessed by the choral music of our chancel choir under the direction of Karrie Rushing. Music is a vital part of our worship life, and Brad Collier fills our worship services with hymns, spirituals, classical music and more on both the piano and our Lewtak Organ. 


What to Wear    

Please wear your mask and what makes you feel comfortable in worship. Most of our congregation tends towards “business casual” or what we in the South sometimes call “church clothes” but we welcome all. You’ll see plenty of kids in sneakers, shorts, flip flops, soccer jerseys, and other clothes they love.


When You Arrive

We are at the corner of 14th Street and Elm Street. Park in the lot off Elm or 14th street and head for glass doors to the Welcome Center. When you enter, the sanctuary will be towards the corner of 14th and Elm with single stall restrooms on the first floor and the second floor balcony. Men’s and Women’s restrooms, nursery, and coffee hour will be towards the interior of the property on the opposite side of the Welcome Center. Older Elementary and youth meet for education between services in our lower level, under the sanctuary. Most adult classes are on the second floor which you can reach using the elevator off the Welcome Center. Make sure to grab a special gift with information about our church after worship.



PLEASE NOTE

Due to the recent spike in COVID-19 cases, especially the Delta variant, the Session of First Presbyterian Church strongly urges you to wear a mask in worship and to practice social distancing, even if you are vaccinated. Recent studies have shown that while the vaccine prevents serious illness, those infected with the Delta variant are still able to spread it. Please especially consider children, as they are not yet eligible for the vaccine and hospitalizations for children are on the rise. We will still have congregational singing as part of our worship services. However, if you choose to participate in singing, masks are required while you sing. This policy will be reevaluated at the August 15th Session meeting.

First Presbyterian Church is located at the corner of Elm Street and 14th Street with parking lots on either side.  

Our address is 1400 S. Elm Street Greenville, NC 27858

However, we highly recommend first time visitors use the 14th street parking for ease of access.

Also, when we have outdoor services, they are on the 14th street side.
