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 Traditional Worship. The Gathering, our contemporary worship experience, is moving to 9 AM Sundays, in Centennial Hall.
In a “culture of perpetual fast-forwardness” the author of “Songs for the Waiting” asks how can we “intentionally focus on the ways to get ready for the arrival of Christ in and among us?” Let’s explore that concept together with a 28 day Advent devotion. Every day’s reading is anchored by a line from an Advent hymn and pertinent scripture. Read the book on your own or join us the next four Sundays starting November 27th at 10:15 in the parlor to discuss and share your thoughts on the week’s devotions. Books are on sale ($14) in Westminster or get one from the church office. Let’s anticipate together, Betty Hollister
Share with us an evening in Centennial Park on Sunday, August 14. Invite your friends, extended family and neighbors for an all-community time for fellowship and fun beginning with a potluck at the pavilion north of Sholem Pool at 6:30 pm. A variety of musical entertainment will have us tapping our toes throughout the evening. Bring a salad, vegetable, chips or dessert to share and a folding chair. Fried chicken and water provided. Some of us will continue to relax while others will venture to Sholem Pool at 7:30 pm. Rain date is August 21.
