1. Where are you located? 16 Hitt Street in Columbia, next to the Ragtag Cinema and Uprise Bakery.

  2. Where can I park? On weekends and weeknights after 6:00 PM you may park in either of the two lots just south of the church or across the street in the city's parking deck. Use the "upper lot" closest to the church for weekday parking.

  3. What are your worship times? Outdoor worship (Shoebox Church) is Sunday at 9:30 AM, and online worship is Sunday at 11:00 AM at our YouTube page, www.youtube.com/fpccolumbia. 

  4. Is it OK to bring my kids to worship? Yes! You are welcome to bring your children to Shoebox Church. When indoor worship resumes, Sunday school and nursery will be phased in.

  5. How do you ensure the safety of children? Our team of attentive childcare workers has been carefully screened using an application, state background check, and personal interview. Each worker has also gone through the Child Protection Policy training required by the church and our Presbytery. Additionally, the Early Childhood Center is locked at all times, and parents sign their children in and out of the center. Parents can provide a cell number or take a pager in the event they need to be notified.

  6. What should I wear to worship? Wear what makes you feel comfortable! 

  7. How can I get married at First Presbyterian Church? Contact the church office at (573) 442-1164 or office@fpccolumbia.org to obtain our wedding policy and fill out an application form. 

  8. How do I become a member of First Presbyterian Church? There are three ways. If you've never been baptized, you can unite with us in membership through the Sacrament of Baptism. If you have been baptized but aren't an active member of another congregation, you can become a member by re-affirming your faith in Jesus Christ. We also accept letters-of-transfer from other Christian congregations. We schedule new member classes on a regular basis and confirmation classes for teens who want to become active members of First Presbyterian.
