…sharing the love of Christ with Athens and the world!

Join us!

Welcome to First Presbyterian Church. We are a congregation of people who are responding to God’s grace in our life.  We do this through creating community where we can together seek truth, ask questions, and encourage and care for one another. We also respond to God’s grace by worshiping together regularly. In worship we experience forgiveness, inspiration, gratitude, and challenge as we encounter God in Word and Sacrament. Last, but not least, we respond to God’s grace by loving and serving those in our community and beyond in the name of Jesus Christ.

We hope you will visit us on Sunday morning or at any of our many other fellowship, educational, or service activities.

For information about visiting on Sunday morning, please see Guest Information.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us by email or phone, 706-543-4338.



If you are interested in learning more about what it means to be a Presbyterian Christian and a member of this congregation, we hope you will let us know. Periodically, we offer a new member class led by our pastors. For more information, please contact Lucy Bell Johnson. We encourage everyone who wishes to become a member to participate in the new member class in order to get to know our congregation and other newcomers. We invite you to join us as we journey together in faith.
