Grace and Peace to you in the name of Jesus Christ!

As followers of Jesus, we gather in His name, recognize His call on our lives, and show His love in all we do.  Faith is expressed by living out His teachings and responding to the needs of our brothers and sisters.  As Children of God, we recognize that Christ calls us His own, and we welcome each other in the same way He welcomes us: unconditionally.

  • Education Activities Reopening

    As the Reopening Task Force continues to plan for a safe reopening of the church, it is with excitement to update you on the newly approved reopening plans!  Covid policies remain in effect, at this time. 

    The Education Department will reopen with the following ministries being held within the church:

    Sunday School for children and youth will resume Sunday, May 16.  The children, K-5th grade, will meet at 9 a.m. in a combined aged class.   Class will resume in the community room of the Education Wing.

    Youth will also resume Sunday, May 16 at 1 pm, and will be held in the youth room upstairs, provding the space allows for the guidelines to be followed.

    Adult Sunday School will resume early summer.

    Vacation Bible School will be held in-house the evenings of  July 12-16.  If you volunteered to help last year, you will be contacted soon to determine your interest.  The “Knights of North Castle” materials purchased last year will be used this year.  We are excited to see our VBS friends!

    Mother's Day Out - Beginning September 6, the Mother's Day Out Program will resume their ministry to the children of the community Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 8:45 am to 2 pm.  This program will run through the end of May.


    While the past year has been trying for all, the Reopening Task Force appreciates your patience and compliance to the precautions put in place.  We look forward to your participation as our ministries reopen!

    Remember, worship service remains open in-house, in the parking lot, and online.

  • You are needed

    Friends within FPCSmyrna and the Smyrna Community. We are gauging interest in hosting a blood drive sometime in the near future that would hopefully work with YOUR schedule. All we need to know right now is:  Can we count on you to participate?

    It is such a simple question but your answer has such a great impact.

    Please prayerfully give thought to this life-saving mission.

    Please feel free to invite others. All donations would be scheduled. This will be in-house and not a mobile unit. The American Red Cross and First Presbyterian currently follow CDC guidelines for the safety of all involved.

    If interested, please email the church office at church.office@fpcsmyrna.org and give your name, email and phone number so we can contact you once a date is decided.

  • Stop and Listen

    Stop! Listen. Can you hear it?

    God is calling you.

    Probably not by words in your ear
    or by writing in a letter
    or by signs seen by your eyes –

    Instead, God calls to you
    through the rhythm of your life,
    through the love of people who support you,
    through the opportunities to share grace that surround you.

    Stop! Listen.

    God’s voice is calling you to love and serve!
