First Pres College

College is a great time to make one's faith one's own.  First Pres College stands on the corner of college and church for the University of Michigan, Eastern Michigan University, and Washtenaw Community College. First Pres College is building Christian community one person at a time.

We are a growing ministry heading in a new direction as a UKirk ministry. We have deep roots going back over 100 years.

2016-2017: Over the past year we have become a registered Campus Ministry with UM, met weekly on UM campus (to discuss faith questions, sometimes sing, sometimes hear faith stories from members), traveled to Belize to work with San Pedro Anglican School, shared faith, and talked about hopes for the future. It has been a year of grace and gratitude. Congratulations to our graduating seniors and thank you to everyone who dedicated time to make this year a success!
