Welcome to the First Presbyterian Church of Decatur
Join us Sundays
Worship begins at 10:00am, where we praise God in a traditional style embracing the Holy Spirit. Children of God of all ages and abilities are welcome to worship with us. Childcare is available for children ages birth to Kindergarten. We are handicap accessible and have an elevator so all are able to join us.
Our church family has been in ministry together for over 150 years since its formation as The First United Presbyterian Church in 1852. The need for a larger building led to the erection of a new church in 1869 which was destroyed by fire in 1917. The present brick building was built and dedicated in 1919. In 1969 the First Methodist Church of Decatur which was formed in 1861 merged with the Presbyterian church to form the First Presbyterian Church of Decatur.
Continuing with the Parable of the Sower from Luke 8:4-18 and adding Deut. 11:13-21 we thought about how our faith has been nurtured by others and how have we encouraged others. Our whole lives should be filled with Lifelong Discipleship Formation.
