Welcome to First Presbyterian

If you are new to us we invite you to visit and explore our many programs and service opportunities! First Pres provides you the worship, educational and service opportunities of a large church, while at the same time offering you the warmth and closeness of a small church in our small group ministries. Our Youth and Childrens' programs provide your children with a rich set of experiences and life lessons that will guide them as they mature in the Christian faith.

Come visit us at 1432 Washtenaw Avenue between Hill Street and South University Avenue, on the southeastern edge of the University of Michigan campus.
