Worship With Us

Worship at FPCdecaturAL

At First Presbyterian Church of Decatur we strive to provide an environment in which all are welcome. FPC is devoted to the study of God‘s Word in an attempt to take His truth and apply it to our daily lives. God’s truth challenges us to offer mercy, love and justice to our community and world.

During this time of the nationwide pandemic of Covid 19, FPCdecaturAL will be holding all Sunday morning worship services on our Facebook page. Sermons will be posted by 9:00am every Sunday morning.

We would love to hear from you if you have any ideas, concerns, or prayer requests during this time. Please go to the Contact Us page on the website and we will be happy to contact you.

October 25, 2020

Is there life after death? Since the beginning of time, humanity has been asking this question. As Christians we believe the answer to be a resounding, “Yes”. We also acknowledge that most of us have more questions than answers about what life after death will be like.

On October 25, Pastor Richard Brooks will begin a new sermon series entitled “Life After Life”. Rather than speculate on what this life may be, Pastor Brooks will be using the scriptures to examine what Jesus and the Bible have to save about our Life After Life
