Welcome to First Presbyterian Church

First Presbyterian Church is a part of the Presbyterian Church (USA). We strive to connect, grow, and serve with those inside our congregation, in our community, and around the world. We are involved in countless missions here in the heart of Tuscaloosa, much of West Alabama, and around the globe.

We have active children's and youth programs, and we host the UKirk student ministry catering to students at the University of Alabama. Our "Mature Members" are also quite active with several local excursions and even some overnight travel each year.

Some of our congregation are fifth and sixth generation members, while others have newly arrived. Consisting of a full range of ages and households, we are very much like a large extended family. Learn more about the history of FPC.

Our staff consists of a dynamic group, all with different backgrounds and interests. We welcome you to our church. Feel free to call or email us for any additional information.

  • CONNECT - We celebrate and foster opportunities to nurture our relationships and connections with God and fellow believers.
  • GROW - We strive to grow in faith and in understanding of God’s Word and Christ’s call on our lives.
  • SERVE - We seek opportunities to faithfully share the Gospel and serve God’s mission in the home, church, community and world through ministries of love, care, healing and hope.
