Welcome to First Presbyterian Church, in historic Athens, Alabama!
We serve each other, the Athens community, and the world on the square in downtown Athens. Our church family is a community of believers who welcome all who come seeking the grace and peace of God.
If you are looking for a place where you will be accepted, nurtured, and nourished in your journey of faith — or if you are still examining the claims of Christianity — then you are welcome at First Presbyterian Church. We hope to see you soon!
