A Church Filled With God's Love
This is a place for worship, spiritual growth, nurture, fellowship and service. We invite you to tour this web site and find out more about First Presbyterian Church in Jackson, Tennessee.
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!

"Growing in Grace. Serving in Love."
Tom and Susan Blackmon
There never was a time when Susan was not a part of this church here in Jackson. She was present when First Presbyterian was located in downtown Jackson and present when the move was made to our current location. Nearly all of Susan's family were members of FPC. Among these were her brothers, mom and dad, grandparents, and a slew of aunts and uncles and cousins. Many of Susan's classmates were a part of FPC. She enjoyed church league basketball, working on the church grounds, and those fun trips to NaCoMe. Susan is here for life.
On the other hand, I was raised in the Methodist church. I asked the Lord into my life in 1972 in Memphis. I was a member of Bellevue Baptist Church in Memphis. Over the years, the Lord allowed me to be exposed to nearly every denomination. After marrying Susan, I became a member of FPC. In the nineties I joined Stephen Ministries with Bill Dellastatious as the leader. This experience allowed me to meet and eventually work for Bob Stanworth as a caregiver.
We became close friends over the years until he died in 2002. Bob's dad was Pastor of this church many years ago. What FPC has made me realize, especially with John White at the helm, is that Christians are Christians regardless of their history. If we confess that Jesus is Lord then we are a part of His family. That's what I love about First Presbyterian Church of Jackson--we are family.
