Welcome to First Presbyterian Church of Jackson!

Welcome to the website of First Presbyterian Church, where we are actively seeking to grow in the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, and show God's presence in our lives through service to others.  It is our mission to provide numerous and varied opportunities for people to encounter and reflect the life changing presence of Christ.  We seek to do this through study and worship, fellowship and service, and we invite you to be a part of who we are becoming in Christ.

We have a rich heritage in this congregation, and we give thanks for those who have faithfully served here in the past.  At the same time, we realize that God is calling us to a powerful, challenging ministry in the present - as God has been so gracious to us, so also we grow in that grace, and serve in love.

Enjoy the website, but don't stop here!  Let this site introduce you to some of our ministries and services, then come and see them in action!  There is a place for you here - a place to grow; a place to serve.  We invite you to join us for Worship at 9:30 am and Sunday School for all ages at 10:45 am. Nursery care is provided for all church gatherings. 

 

We're glad you're here online, and we hope to see you in person soon!

 

First Presbyterian Church...
"Growing in Grace. Serving in Love."

 

   Testimonial

 

The day after Christmas, 1967, we moved to Jackson with Paige – age 5, Paula – age 4, and a black poodle named Prissy. We had both been baptized, raised and married in the Presbyterian Church and it never occurred to us to change. The first week Betty Louis Sheppard called on us and arranged to meet in front of the church on Sunday and show us where each of our Sunday school classes were. After settling our girls, she took us to the Young Adults Class. We are still in that Sunday school class. Now it is called the Swaim Bible Class and no one would call us “young adults”. It, and its members, are a special treasure to us, as are so many at First Pres. We had two more children who were baptized here and sat on the front row, left side. The children had to sit still and be quiet with the preacher looking down at them. Later we moved back a few pews and, when Charles retired and we spent half the year in Florida, we lost our pew. Now we are part of the “Back Row Bunch”.

There were so many wonderful role models for us: the Hymers, Lowrys, Campbells, Measells, Ma Barton, and Marilynn’s Tuesday morning prayer group with Liz Swaim and Lui Pauley….that helped guide and motivate us through those child-rearing years. We participated in every aspect of the church and have been blessed by it. What we are learning during these autumn years, as we have more time to reflect on life’s experiences, is that FPC and/or God are the one constant in our lives. Houses change, jobs change, children grow up and leave, activities and interests change, but God is always with you. While His light has sometimes become dim (whether our fault or the church’s) never have we seen His light shining brighter than we do right now at FPC. It is exciting to be a part of the Holy Spirit moving in this church. God Bless!
