Thank you to everyone who supported us yesterday on ‪#‎GiveNOLADay‬! Because of our members, longtime friends and some new supporters, First Presbyterian received 13 gifts totaling $1,000!

Your support is a blessing and we will use it wisely.  We would like to invite you to worship on Sunday mornings at 11am. The atmosphere is somewhat traditional, and also casual and welcoming!

Help First Presbyterian finish our kitchen renovation!

We have set up a Go Fund Me campaign to finish our kitchen renovation project.  As they say, "The kitchen is the heart of the home," and at First Presbyterian we already have a lot of heart.  What we don't have is a proper commercial kitchen.

Planned Parenthood Rally

Recently First Presbyterian opened our doors to a impromptu Planned Parenthood rally that was enthusiastically attended by more than 200 supporters, including Councilwomen Latoya Cantrell and Susan Guidry, both of whom are passionately and consistently concerned about the state of health care in our city. We are looking forward to further events and lobbying our government in Baton Rouge for more funding for mental and physical health services in Louisiana.
