Welcome to the First Presbyterian Church of Champaign's Website. We are disciples of Jesus Christ, who worship our God, share love and friendship with one another, and are passionate about making a difference in our community and beyond. We believe that a church exists for ministry and mission as a fire exists for burning. Our Sunday morning worship times are 8 am and 9 am for Traditonal Worship. The Gathering, our contemporary worship experience, meets at 10:30 am Sunday mornings.
My wife and I were walking into a store the other day and she casually mentioned, "I love this time of year! You can smell the Earth coming back to life." I'd never heard spring phrased so tangibly.
During our recent Forward 150 congregational forums several of you asked some excellent questions. We've complied a list of all of the questions asked in each one of the forums along with some answers from Session and Staff. You can download them by clicking here.
If you have any further questions or if you have any difficulties downloading the content please contact the church office by clicking here.

From the lips of children and infants you have ordained praise because of your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger. Psalm 8:2

You don’t need me to tell you how awful the weather has been this winter. It has been the number one topic of conversation for what seems like months! It also seems to me that it always snowed just before Sunday services.
When we had the Polar Vortex we even had to close the church for two days. In Rick’s 39 years as a Pastor that’s only the second time he has had to cancel Sunday Services.
