Looking to learn more about faith, Jesus Christ or First Presbyterian Church?

We welcome new members into our church family by profession of faith, reaffirmation of faith in Jesus Christ, or by transfer of certificate from another church. We encourage you to attend a series of instructive classes, New Member Classes, which we hold at regular intervals throughout the year. Not only will you learn the steps to becoming a member of First Presbyterian Church, but you will also begin to understand where you are in your spiritual journey and hopefully understand how you need to grow in relationship to God and His Son Jesus.

  • You will hear about First, what we believe, and what our church is committed to.
  • You will learn how to find a place to serve others where you will be fruitful and fulfilled because you are serving according to your spiritual gifts and passions.
  • You will have the opportunity to get to know some of our staff and others who are new at First.

We are intentional about what it means to be a part of the body of Christ, so we encourage you to think hard about “joining”. When you decide to join/become a member, you are making a commitment to work with others in this place, using your gifts to enhance this fellowship, and spread the Good News of Jesus. If you are interested in being in the next New Member Class, indicate your interest on your Communication Card when you attend worship next Sunday or email Rev. Chris Handley at chandley@florencefirst.org. We look forward to the possibility and opportunity to have you in this family.
