Welcome to our Church

We extend a special welcome to those who are single, married, divorced, gay, filthy rich, dirt poor, yo no hablo Ingles.  We extend a special welcome to those who are crying newborns, skinny as a rail or could afford to lose a few pounds.
We welcome you if you can sing like Andrea Bocelli or can’t carry a note in bucket.  You’re welcome here if you’re “just browsing,” just woke up, or just got out of jail. We don’t care if you’re more Presbyterian than John Calvin or haven’t been in a church since little Joey’s baptism or Sally’s wedding after
which everybody, including
poor Sally, got drunk.
We extend a special welcome to those who are over 60 but not grown up yet, and to teenagers who are growing up way, way too fast.  We welcome soccer moms, NASCAR dads, starving artists, retired farmers, hedge-fund managers, tree-huggers, latte-sippers, vegetarians, computer nerds, and junk-food eaters.  We welcome those who are in recovery or still addicted- some of us have also been there.  We welcome you if you’re having problems these days or have had “issues” your whole life long.  We welcome you if you’re down in the dumps or if you don’t like “organized religion”- we’ve been there too.   We welcome you if you’re “spiritual but not religious,” and if you are curious whether it is possible to be both at once.
If you blew your offering money in a football pool or on online betting, you’re welcome here.  We offer a special welcome to those who think the earth is flat or was created, literally, in seven days.   We welcome you if you work too hard or don’t work at all.  We welcome you if you have a PhD, but are working now at Trader Joes, or if you can’t spell and the job you do have is killing you.  We welcome you if you’re here today only because grandma is in town and wanted to go to church and you just didn’t want to disappoint her.
We welcome those who are inked, pierced or both.  We offer a special welcome to those who could use a prayer right now, maybe especially because they had religion shoved down their throats as kids or by someone they worked for after they grew up.  We welcome you if you wound up here by mistake thinking that this was the Catholic church (it’s around the corner on Clay Pitts, but since you’re here already, you might as well stay for our service- we welcome Catholics too and, of course, people of all faith traditions).  
We welcome tourists, seekers, doubters, and everybody on the edge of faith, which includes, well, pretty much all of us.  Bottom line: we welcome you.   And we welcome you because we know that no matter who you are, Jesus welcomes you.  Oh, and also because we know that when we receive the welcome that Jesus offers, everything begins to change for the better and keeps changing so long as we do (and as long as we do the right thing and welcome others in his name too).

NOTE: This welcome message was adapted from one used by Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Community Church in Daytona Beach, FL, and was adopted as the Official Welcome Message of the First Presbyterian Church of Greenlawn, as approved by the Session on February 19th, 2013

Sunday Church Service is at 10:30am
At 10:45am, after a Children's message,
children are dismissed to Sunday School.
Sunday Adult Bible Study is at 11:45am
(or directly after Sunday Services)

The Sunday morning service could be best described as upbeat traditional in style, with the addition of a Children's Message and some contemporary praise songs. The goal of every service is to bring each person into a closer personal relationship with our
Lord Jesus Christ. The preaching is biblical, personal and Christ-centered. In addition to the Sunday service, we have:

  • an adult Bible Study following Sunday Services
  • a Youth Director building and encouraging our youth ministry through activities and retreats
  • a 10:30am Friday morning Prayer Meeting and Bible Study
  • two Presbyterian Women's Circles which meet monthly
  • Wednesday evening Lenten Soup Suppers open to the community
  • an active Computer and Phone Prayer & Praise Ministry who pray for personal concerns of God's people
  • many community minded outreach programs where you can be of service and where you can be a blessing to others while demonstrating God's love to you

Announcing our June 9th Concert
     The First Presbyterian Church of Greenlawn proudly presents “Craig Schulman on Broadway,” the first in a series of concerts to raise funds to purchase a new organ for the church.

Craig Schulman is the only performer in the world to have performed three of the most extraordinary musical theatre characters ever written.  He has appeared in the title roles of Jekyll & Hyde, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Phantom of the Opera, and nearly 2,000 performances of Jean Valjean in Les Miserables, on Broadway and around the world.

He was chosen to represent the U.S. at the Les Miserables Tenth Anniversary Concert at Royal Albert Hall, which can often be seen on the PBS broadcast of the event.  He has played Che in Eita, Tevye in Fiddler on the Roof, Archibald Craven in The Secret Garden.

Mr. Schulman moves freely between the worlds on Broadway, opera, and symphonic pops programs.  He has sung Don Jose in Carmen, Judge Danforth in The Crucible, and Einstein in Die Fledermaus.  Other important roles include Pinkerton in Madama Butterfly, and Hoffman in Tales of Hoffman.  Television credits include singing on The Rosie O’Donnell Show, NBC Weekend Today, and Guiding Light.   

     The concert will take place in our Sanctuary on Sunday, June 9, at 3:00 p.m. Tickets will range from $40 to $65, with student tickets at $25. 
(The $65 ticket includes seating in the front, and an after-concert reception, including a Question-and-Answer Meet-and-Greet with Mr. Schulman.) 
Please see Pastor Ann for tickets; they will be sold to the
general public shortly.

Please place your order from
your computer or laptop.
