While this is a difficult time for us, let's focus on the positive.

  • The church is not a building, nor is it confined to one particular place.  We Are the Church!
  • We are still here for you. If you are in need of help, please let us know.
  • The FirstPres Food Pantry will remain open,  on Wednesday evenings from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m.
  • If you have specific prayer requests, please click on the envelope below to email your request.  Or  you can call the church line at 262.632.1686.




  • Weekly Worship

    To help protect our members and visitors, we have suspended gatherings of all kinds at First Presbyterian.  In the meantime, you are welcome to join our weekly worship, every Sunday, via Zoom.  To receive the invitation, please click here to email the church.  Remember to include your name and email address.


    To watch our current (or a previous) worship service, please click on the Worship at First graphic to the left.

  • Keeping our youth connected to Sunday School, when they cannot be here in person.

  • Contemplative Prayer via Zoom

    A recent study showed that we do not always use our best judgement when we are stressed, and these are stressful times that can leave us anxious and often irritable if not angry. Centering prayer helps us lower anxiety and settle into a deeper stillness where we can better sense the movements of the Spirit of God and reconnect with our truest and best selves.

    Contemplative Prayer is offered online via zoom every Thursday at 4:30p.m. Each prayer will begin with an introduction to guide our prayers followed by 15-20 minutes of silence and concluding with a few minutes for people to share their experience with one another. When it is safe to do so, we will offer Contemplative Prayer at the church.

    To register for Contemplative Prayer, please email the church at office@firstpresracine.org. You will receive an email invitation to participate. You will need a computer, tablet, or smartphone with microphone, speaker, and camera to participate via zoom.

  • Bible Study via Zoom

    There are two opportunities to participate in an online Bible study via zoom: after worship each Sunday and every Wednesday at noon. To register, email the church at office@firstpresracine.org and indicate which session you plan to attend - Wednesdays or Sundays.


    Those attending the Wednesday sessions will receive a zoom invitation via email. Those attending the Sunday sessions will be sent to the Bible study break out group following worship. The scripture for discussion will be the ones used in worship so the sermon will serve as a prompt for the discussions. The scripture readings for each Sunday will be posted online the week before. 


    The scripture readings for Wednesday's Bible study are Genesis 14:14-20 and Hebrews 6:13-7:6.

  • Pastor Nominating Committee (PNC)

    The process of finding a pastor for our church began with the congregation selecting committee members.  They are Co-Moderators - Pat Badger and Chris Hansen, along with Ellen Easley, Dave Holle, Theo Leavell, Denise Park, and Pam Simpson.


    For the past six months, the PNC have been meeting via Zoom.  Additional information can be found by clicking here!

Who We Are ...

We are a family of faith centered on a belief in Jesus Christ. Grounded in that belief, we seek to follow Christ’s way in our world—loving God with heart, soul, mind, and strength, and loving neighbor as self. Like most families, we’re not all the same. Some of us grew up as Presbyterians (or Methodists, or Lutherans, or Catholics…) and have come to trust the church as an institution. Others might consider themselves “spiritually hungry, but institutionally suspicious.” Together we seek to honor our traditions while we open ourselves to the new things God is doing in our midst. Through it all, we hope that our very lives bear witness to the all-encompassing love of God in Jesus Christ.  


We are part of Milwaukee Presbytery. 

We belong to Presbyterian Church (USA)  and

Synod of Lakes and Prairies.
