We're Glad You're Here
First Presbyterian Church is a congregation with a deep appreciation of our history and tradition, but we are also a growing family with a tremendous sense of hope for the future. We’ve been in existence since 1884 and located at the corner of South Center and Citrus Streets in since 1912. The love that we share here is both deep and real, and everyone is welcomed at First Presbyterian Church with genuine warmth and joy.
Our members pride themselves on the fact that we do not all agree on many issues that divide people in modern culture. We believe we are stronger because we have different opinions on important subjects. We can disagree without being disagreeable!
