First Presbyterian Church: Feeding the hungry, body and soul

  •  Announcement: (May 8 2020) First Presbyterian Church of Homewood is holding our first virtual Service for Healing and Wholeness at 7 pm on May 25 on this website. There will be details here and on the Home page. More will be posted soon. OR This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Share with your friends and family. 
  •  Announcement: (May 8 2020) An anonymous donor has offered to match dollar for dollar up to a total of $500 of donations to support the food pantry at Jones Center.  If we meet this challenge, Jones Center will receive $1,000.   Donations are to be mailed to the church office by May 31.  The checks must have Jones Center in the memo.  Jones Center gets no help from The Chicago Food Depository so they are dependent on other sources for food.  The people they serve need food to survive.
  • All Monday Community Dinners are still unscheduled.  Check back. 
  • Update 5-10-20: For updates about what's happening,  visit  fpchw.org/sermon to experience our online worship services.  In addition to our April 19 2020 service we have celebrated  Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Easter Sunday online services.  We will continue to share our online worship services.  During the week, all past services will be available to you.  Every Sunday a new service will be offered for the entire day. Monday, it will be included in "past" services. Thank you for your continued support.

First Presbyterian Church of Homewood is a Christian community of faith in the Presbyterian Church (USA) denomination and we have been actively sharing the faith since 1858. First Presbyterian Church is a congregation of approximately 150 members bound together by our commitment to Jesus Christ.

We value worshiping together joyfully, wrestling with scripture faithfully, and reaching out to our local and global neighbors with compassion and hope.

Our congregation welcomes all people who trust in God's grace in Jesus Christ and want to become a part of the fellowship and ministry of his church. The gospel leads us to extend the fellowship of Christ to all people. If we do not do so, we would be rejecting Christ himself!

It is with joy that we greet you. We hope you will look over the many opportunities for mission and ministry at First Presbyterian Church of Homewood. You are welcome any time!

Grace and Peace,
Pastor Dudley Elvery

PS---Worship with us at 10:30 a.m. Sunday mornings.
Adult Bible study is from 9:30-10:20 a.m. year-round.

Our building is air conditioned in the summer and there is an elevator through the garden entrance off the back parking lot.
