Welcome to First Presbyterian Church in New Orleans!

We are a church with a rich history. Feel free to browse our website and discover more about us. First Presbyterian is an open and affirming congregation that welcomes and encourages all to join us in worship. We are affiliated with the PC(USA).

We are a More Light Congregation which means we welcome all people, all races, and all sexual orientations.


World Communion Sunday

Today is World Communion Sunday. We had a wonderful service this morning with breads from, Africa, Switzerland, France, the Mediterranean, Central America, and our usual Jewish Challah bread. The table was set with beautiful textiles from places near and far.

It is good to be reminded that the body of Christ is found in every corner of the world.  This is certainly a feast that the Lord has prepared for us. Taste and see that the Lord is Good!

Pumpkins Delayed until Monday 5pm

Our pumpkin truck is on the road. It should be here late tonight. We will unload tomorrow (MONDAY) at 5pm. We need to get these orange beauties off the hot humid truck ASAP so we cannot wait for perfect conditions. Sorry to ask everyone to come out on a work/school night but it is what it is. We have seen the weather forcast, and hope that there is no rain!  

If you can't come, please help us network and share our plea with someone else who might be abe to help. Thank you!

Welcome to the newly baptized!

What a wonderful serivce we had today!

What a blessing to have our church family grow today with a new baptism and new member!  We celebrate this milestore together with Lynn and Wayne and look forward to many more.  

This was Pastor Kim's first baptism with FPC!  We celebrated with music from the bell choir, performing "Jesus Loves Me," and “Thy Holy Wings" sung by the choir.  We sang old and new hymns, “O for a Thousand Tongues to Sing,” "I Was There to Hear Your Borning Cry” and “Lord, I Want to Be a Christian."  

If ever there were a time...

"If ever there were a time for people to wake up and see that we are citizens of a whole city and state and nation, and more than that, citizens of God’s whole big world, isn't it now?

If ever there were a time for people to acknowledge that being members of a particular racial group DOES shape our experience of God and other people - AND that we are, ALL OF US, part of the whole human race under God, isn't this the time?
