About Us

Have you ever wanted to explore your spirituality more deeply?

Have you ever wanted to grapple with the hard texts of the Bible and how they relate to us today?

Come join us! At First Presbyterian Church, we take theology seriously.

You will feel at home in our congregation due to the family nature of our connection with each other. We will warmly welcome you, and we invite all people to join us. You won’t need a tie or high heels to feel comfortable in our worship. You will hear about God’s grace and love. 

We invite your questions and doubts as well as your confidence in faith.

First Presbyterian Church is part of the Presbyterian Church (USA), Synod of the Sun, and Mission Presbytery. We are active in the work of these bodies through mission giving, mission work, serving on various committees, and participation in the decision making processes of the Presbytery.

Our church celebrated its 125th anniversary in 2006, and marked its 100th year in the current building in 2009. 

We are one of the oldest churches in Elgin, but we strive to keep current with the times.
