About Us

First Presbyterian Church, located in downtown Decatur, Illinois, is a part of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.).

Our congregation is a member of the Covenant Network of Presbyterians, which is an organization that seeks to strengthen the church through advocacy, education and networking on behalf of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer people in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.).

First Presbyterian is a Matthew 25 church, a Presbyterian program that promotes the witness of the church by building congregational vitality, dismantling structural racism and eradicating systemic poverty.

We have signed the Presbyterian “Commitment to Peacemaking” and have an ongoing program to shape faithful and creative ministries of peace and justice.

Join us as we share our talents, passions, and struggles.  We have good discussions, respect for varying opinions, opportunities for personal growth, and a fair amount of laughter.  We are unified in our faith, hope, trust, and gratitude to God.

Come, join the conversation.
