About Us

Our Mission Statement:

Our Mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ,

who love God, love one another, and serve the world.


Lead by Pastor Peggy McClure, First Presbyterian Church offers opportunities for worship and learning for people of all ages and walks of life who seek to follow the teachings and leadership of Jesus Christ.


We are located near downtown Decatur, at 701 Oak Street (on the corner of Oak & Vine).  First Presbyterian Church was established on this site in 1854.  The chimes in our bell tower mark the hours with melodies of familiar Christian hymns.  These reassuring tones echo over the gracious homes and down the tree-shaded sidewalks of this beautiful neighborhood, reminding us that even in these days of complex social and world issues, we are enfolded in God's incomprehensible love.


First Presbyterian Church of Decatur is a member of the North Alabama Presbytery and the Living Waters Synod of the Presbyterian Church USA.


All are welcome here.
