HISTORY & MISSION
First Presbyterian Church (FPC) was born on June 27, 1858 with a grand total of ten members. Today FPC numbers 185 members. FPC has had three homes: 21st Street and Prairie Avenue (1864-1903), 2201 Western Avenue (1903-1972), 10 Charleston Avenue (1972-today). The gym and youth center were added in 1987.
Throughout our history, Presbyterians have been actively involved in meeting needs in the community and throughout the world. In recent years, FPC members have dug wells in Africa, built a school in Central America, and re-built homes for flood victims in Cedar Rapids and Nashville. Closer to home, FPC members worked to refurbish the Titus Home in Sullivan, established a mentoring program at Riddle Elementary School, provided support for Kemmerer Village, as well as helping as staff and volunteers for the Mattoon Food Pantry and Heartland Christian Village.
Our aim at FPC is to live out the Good News of Jesus Christ and bring that Good News to the world. We discover new dimensions to God's love as we study the Scriptures and reach out in service to others. The faith that has sustained FPC members for over 150 years is the same faith we bring to the challenges and callings of today. FPC can provide your family with a sturdy foundation of faith from which to learn and serve and grow as a disciple of Jesus Christ.
