First Presbyterian Church: Feeding the hungry, body and soul
Updated: 05 07 2021
There are two Special Offerings scheduled for May. The first one is Mother's Day this Sunday. There is a special envelope in the envelope box for this. The second Special Offering is Pentecost on Sunday, May 23, 2021. For some reason, there is no special envelope for this in the box.

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 a little over 100 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 virtually at 10:30 a.m. Sunday mornings.
When we are again in our building, it is air conditioned in the summer and there is an elevator through the garden entrance off the back parking lot.
Monday Night Community Dinners! (Canceled Until Further Notice)
For six years First Presbyterian Church of Homewood offered a free evening meal every Monday from 5:30-6:30 p.m. downstairs in Westminster Hall (handicap accessible). We met every monday regardless of whether is was a holiday, Christmas Day, New Year's celebration .... until Covid 19. Out of respect for life and the gravity of many other unknown concerns, we discontinued.
Thanks for a successful 2019 and 2020 through March!
