Welcome to First Presbyterian!

At FPC we seek to share God’s love with all whom we meet. We acknowledge the Triune God’s work in the world and in our lives. Through the power of the Holy Spirit and the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, God shows unconditional love and grace to us all. We are called to share that love and grace and to be the light of the world. God is writing a new chapter in the story of humanity, and we are a part of that new chapter. Join us as we write the next chapter of our faith journeys together!

Celebrating 50 Years!  Homecoming - March 27

On Sunday, March 27, First Presbyterian Church of Monroe will celebrate 50 years at our
church home on 500 Breedlove Drive. The church was originally formed in 1950 and resided
on the corner of West Highland and Spring Street in downtown Monroe. After 22 years at this
location the congregation purchased land on Breedlove Drive to become Ray Memorial
Presbyterian Church. The first service at our current location was held on a joyful Easter
in1972. In 2012 we reclaimed our original name, First Presbyterian Church (USA).

What a wonderful history we have, and YOU are a part of our church history and family! Joining
us for our special celebration will be former pastors Gary Lowe and George Rogers. We have
put together displays of church activities over the past 50 years for you to enjoy and to share
with your family.

About

First Presbyterian Church is a part of the Presbytery of Greater Atlanta and the Presbyterian Church (USA). 

Presbyterians trace their history to the 16th century and the Protestant Reformation. Our heritage, and much of what we believe, began with the French lawyer John Calvin (1509-1564), whose writings crystallized much of the Reformed thinking that came before him.

Calvin did much of his writing from Geneva, Switzerland. From there, the Reformed movement spread to other parts of Europe and the British Isles.

Many of the early Presbyterians in America came from England, Scotland and Ireland.The first American Presbytery was organized at Philadelphia in 1706.The first General Assembly was held in the same city in 1789.The first Assembly was convened by the Rev. John Witherspoon, the only minister to sign the Declaration of Independence.
 

At the core of Presbyterian identity is a secure hope in the grace of God in Jesus Christ, a hope that, by the power of the Holy Spirit, empowers us to live lives of gratitude: “In affirming with the earliest Christians that Jesus is Lord, the Church confesses that he is its hope, and that the Church, as Christ’s body, is bound to his authority and thus free to live in the lively, joyous reality of the grace of God.” (Book of Order F-1.0204)

This strong emphasis on the grace of God in Jesus Christ is our heritage from the founder of the Reformed tradition, John Calvin. Presbyterians are distinctive in two major ways. They adhere to a pattern of religious thought known as Reformed theology and a form of government that stresses the active, representational leadership of both ministers and church members.


Congregations are ruled by the Session, elders elected by the congregation. Elders serve for a three year term. The Clerk of Session is Gwen Roberts, and the Moderator is————-.FPC Monroe is a part of the Presbytery of Greater Atlanta and the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.).
