Community cannot for long feed on itself; it can only flourish with the coming of others from beyond, their unknown and undiscovered brothers [and sisters].- Howard Thurman
First Presbyterian welcomes all who come through our doors with acceptance and openness. Whether you have grown up in the church or are a spiritual or philosophical explorer we are happy to invite you into community. We trust you will find First Pres to be a warm, vibrant and inspiring place.
The worship service at 10 a.m. each Sunday is dynamic, led by a talented jazz band, an accomplished choir, and a powerful organ. This is followed by fellowship with coffee and treats. Often, children's fellowship hour and adult classes and discussion groups meet at 9am, before worship. There are many opportunities for learning, fellowship, service and personal growth throughout the week. We invite you to join us in whatever may be of interest to you.
This is a historic church which has served Corvallis and beyond for more than 160 years. The fact that the church is so “old” means, of course, that we have always aimed to not be old in our thinking. This congregation continually looks ahead to find new, exciting and powerful ways to make God’s love real in this world. If you are interested in being part of such a congregation, your presence will be greatly valued.
