______________________________________



After over 60 years of ministry at 1801 Second Ave, this community of faith has embarked on a new adventure.  Much like the ancient Israelites set out into the wilderness to follow God’s call, so too has this body of believers entered into the ‘wilderness’ in order to seek God’s will for God’s church.  Until we erect a more permanent ‘tent’ in the future, F.P.C. will be sharing a temporary location with another congregation, First Christian Church, at 2525 Second Avenue… just down the street from our previous location.  This is an exciting time in this church’s long history… Come and join the journey!


WELCOME!

You are invited to join us for worship or study, as we seek to grow in our identity as…

A COMMUNITY OF CHRISTIANS WHO CELEBRATE GOD’S LOVING PRESENCE AND ENJOY GOD IN JOY-FILLED WORSHIP?
 
Our Worship Service has a Bible-based, encouraging sermon that relates Christian faith to everyday challenges. We also gather for special worship services including Advent, Christmas, Ash Wednesday, Holy Week, and Easter.

On the first Sunday of each month we celebrate the Sacrament of Communion.  All baptized persons who trust in Jesus Christ as our Savior are invited to participate in Communion,  regardless of church membership or background.


One Joint Worship Service
 at 10:30 am in the Sanctuary

Christian Education for all ages 9:00 a.m.
(see Sunday School Link for more info)

 
A CHURCH THAT ALSO ENJOYS GOD IN DEVOUT STUDY, AND A PERSONAL SEARCH TO UNDERSTAND GOD’S CALL?
 
We offer Sunday School classes for all ages, including an Adult class. Sunday School is at 9:00 A.M. A nursery, with an age-appropriate beginning Sunday School class, is offered from 8:45 A.M. to 11:45 A.M. on Sundays, and is also open for special services. Special short term classes are offered for children in Kindergarten through Sixth Grade to prepare them to celebrate Communion, Confirmation Classes for youth in Seventh Grade and above, Elder Preparation classes, and New Member classes.
 
A CHURCH THAT IS EAGER TO ENCOURAGE OTHERS IN THEIR WALK OF FAITH, AND TO SERVE THOSE IN NEED?
 
Fellowship groups include a Presbyterian Women's group, a Men’s Group that meets for breakfast and to hear a special speaker on the third Saturday of each month.   We enjoy monthly fellowship dinners, and strive to show Christ’s love for one another, and for the community.
 
We are deeply committed to mission. We support the Oak Park food pantry, partner with Oak Park Elementary School, maintain a strong tie with a sister Presbyterian church in Cuba, and have sent groups on mission trips as far away as Caderetya, Mexico and as close to home as Creole, Louisiana. With the help of Presbyterian Disaster Assistance we are hosting work groups that come from many different regions to help Southwest Louisiana rebuild from the devastation of Hurricane Rita.
