As disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ, we are a community of believers, called by God to glorify and serve God through worship and witness.

In accordance with the updated guidelines provided by the State of Tennessee, the Session of First Presbyterian Church is updating our Coronavirus response.  Attached here is a letter to the congregation from the Senior Pastor outlining the Phase 2 changes (Updated November Letter to Congregation Coronavirus Return Plan).
