You Are Welcome Here

First Presbyterian Church in Asheville, NC

Welcome

Welcome to First Presbyterian Asheville where we are passionate about our mission to experience the boundary-breaking love of Jesus Christ by practicing radical hospitality, forming deep relationships, and joining in shared ministry.

Sunday mornings are a wonderful place to start at FPCA. Our in-person worship is Spirit-filled and offers the space to connect with God and one another. There are also groups and classes to help all ages grow in their faith and friendships. Start on Sundays, and find there the rhythm of grace that frees us from the burden of what is behind and prepares us to live joyfully in the week ahead.
