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.  the Session highly encourages everyone, whether vaccinated or not, to wear a mask when meeting indoors.  If you do not have a mask, we will provide you with a free one.  We also encourage everyone to practice social distancing.  If you choose to participate in the congregational singing, masks are required.  We take the commandment to love our neighbor very seriously and we are committed to safety procedures to prevent community spread of the virus.

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.

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.

Faith Formation Groups 

Faith Formation can mean a lot of different things. It can mean Sunday School, Mid-Week Bible studies, Prayer groups, learning spiritual practices and more!  Some of our groups have been meeting together for a long time.  Other groups are short term commitments of 4-8 weeks.  Whether you are looking for an established group or a short-term commitment, all of our groups are open and welcoming of new people. 

Contact any of our pastors to talk about what you are looking for and we will be glad to help match you and introduce you to someone in the group to get started.  For a complete list of our established groups, please visit the Education and Spiritual Formation page here. NEEDS LINK

Our mission is to

BE AN OPEN DOOR

to all who seek Christ in their lives,

INCREASE PASSION

for spiritual growth,

BUILD

a nurturing fellowship,

and FAITHFULLY SERVE

the needs of others. 

Guided by the Great Commandment, we are a people that loves God

and gratefully serves Christ as the head of our church.

We share our journey of faith—at times boldly and at times humbly,

but always in awareness that it is in the daily giving of God’s love to others

that we daily receive God’s love and grace.
