Worship is at the heart of any Christian community. 

We gather together to give thanks to God for the gifts of life and grace,

for the freedom to gather together in praise and worship of God's holy name.


First Presbyterian of Gainesville has two Sunday worship services:

Sunday Morning at 8:30 a.m. and 10:55 a.m.

The 8:30 a.m. service is held in Iona Chapel and offers a weekly communion service.

The 10:55 a.m. service is held in the Sanctuary and is a traditional service with a full chancel choir.  The 10:55 a.m. service also includes Time for Young Disciples and Kids-4-God.

A Compact Disc (CD) is available of the service for $2.  Please e-mail communications@1stpc.org if you would like a copy of one of the 10:55 a.m. services.

We invite you to join us for worship any Sunday.  Child care is provided during Sunday School and

the 10:55 a.m. worship service for those families attending worship.  Our Christian Education Sunday School classes for children and adults are offered during the school year from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.  If you have any questions, please contact us at 378-1527.

Prayer of Belief

Lord Jesus Christ, I admit I am weaker and more sinful than I ever before believed, but, through you, I am more loved and accepted than I ever dared hope.  I thank you for paying my debt, bearing my punishment and offering forgiveness.  I turn from my sins and receive you as Savior.  Amen.  (If you are saying this prayer for the first time today, please let us know at 378-1527.)
