Thank you for taking time to explore First Presbyterian Church through our website. For over 150 years, our congregation has held forth God's word of love and life in the heart of our city and to the ends of the earth. We are thankful for God's work in and through this community of faith. We are also confident God is working in and through your life today. Perhaps through your experience on our website, you will consider joining us on a journey of faith.
Three ministries define our congregation: worship, education and service. Our worship experience is deeply rooted in the Christian tradition, yet vibrant and alive in its relevance to our contemporary world. Ken Cooper, our director of worship, brings a level of excellence to our music, ensuring we offer our very best to God. On any given Sunday, you will hear a wide variety of offerings, from Bach, to the great hymns of the church, to African American spirituals to the Celtic rhythms of the Iona Community's songs. Our rich tradition of excellence in preaching offers fresh insights into the relevance of God's Word for our lives today. Through regular worship, we grow in our relationship with God and with one another in Christian community.
Our education ministry offers many ways for people of all ages to grow in relationship with God through exploring the Bible and its Word to our world today. From the annual Brown Lecture Series that brings some of the greatest theological minds in the world to Dallas, to our extensive Sunday School programs that offer some of Dallas' greatest minds as regular teachers, to our many weekly opportunities for in-depth Bible study, your faith will be nurtured, stretched and challenged through the education ministry of FPC.
With one of the largest social ministries in the nation, First Presbyterian Church offers a unique opportunity to meet Christ by serving the least of these in our midst at the Stewpot. Through Stewpot Ministries, we serve over 500 people a day a hot meal, as well as offer support from social workers, a medical clinic, a dental clinic, drug rehab and psychiatric help. Every Saturday we host hundreds of children from City Park Elementary at our Saturday School, and dozens of teens participate in our Venturing Crew. Our social ministry stretches to Juarez, Mexico, Guguletu, South Africa, and Kerala, India. First Presbyterian Church offers countless opportunities to make a significant difference in the world and see the difference such service can make in your own life.
Worshiping, learning and serving, we grow not only in relationship with God, but also with one another. FPC is a family of faith committed to loving God with all our heart, mind, and strength through our ministries of worship, education and service. We hope and pray you will take time to join us in person. It's worth the trip to join the journey at the First Presbyterian Church of Dallas. – less–ZoomInfo
