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.

Effective May 9, 2021, FPCdecaturAL will be holding all Sunday morning worship services in our sanctuary at 10:30am. Summaries of each sermon will be posted by 6:00pm every Saturday evening on our YouTube page. These summaries are listed below on this website page.

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.
