First Presbyterian Church is seeking to bear witness to Christ in our community through the church and the involvement of its members. Here are some of the ways that is taking place.

Christianity Explored

 Christianity Explored is primarily for anyone who wants to investigate Christianity informally with a group of other people. Whether you have previous experience of Church, Christians and the Bible, or none at all, this course is for you. Everyone is welcome - from the most sympathetic Sunday schooler to the convinced atheist. More>

FPC Ministry Partners

The Session of First Presbyterian Church has been pivotal in the formation of several ministries that serve as ministry partners to the church. They are -

Erskine Theological Seminary - Columbia Campus

First Presbyterian Church Counseling Center

Laurel Crest Retirement Center
A retirement community became a vision of the Session in the 1980's. In August of 1994, Laurel Crest Retirement Center was opened.
