Welcome. We hope this site will help you learn more about us and our witness for Christ. We strive to recognize and nurture the Christ in ourselves and each person that we encounter along the way. Our church is a thriving community of believers, and lovers of the word of God. First Presbyterian Church has a long tradition of outreach and service to its members and the community. We hope you will join us for service on Sunday to experience for yourself the fellowship of Christ.

"It's Good to Know"
MEANING OF THE PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE The Pledge of Allegiance was written with a strong meaning that we, as citizens, believe. “I pledge allegiance” means I promise to be true. “To the flag” means to the symbol of our country. “Of the United States of America” means each state that has joined to make our country. “And to the Republic” means a republic is a country where the people choose others to make laws for them. The government is for the people. “For which it stands” means the flag stands for the country. “One Nation” means a single country. “Under God” means the people believe in a supreme being. “Indivisible” means the country cannot be split into parts. “With liberty and justice” means with freedom and fairness. “For all” means for each person in the country.

The "school supply" collection will continue through the summer. There are lists of needed supplies near the collection bins. Our share of the Pentecost Offering last month will go to the Youth Achievement Center (YAK). Since several of our local food pantries are running low of food, we will now keep a bin marked "Food" for weekly donations - hoping that our members will get in the habit of bringing a can or a box to church when we come.
EUGENIA’S THOUGHTS Have you ever just sat in our church and gazed at our beautiful and precious windows? If not, please do. They are beautiful and each one gives us a remembrance of what we’ve read in our bibles or have learned in Sunday School.
PIPE ORGAN The Mid States Pipe Organ specialists have started work on refurbishing our organ. This is a $44,000 project that will take up to 6 weeks. This is a project of the Memorial/Endowment Committee. We have the funds from memorials and from the Worship and Music Endowment. We are so grateful for our members and friends that have been donating to this project for many years. There will be a big celebration rededicating our organ this fall. First Presbyterian Church is blessed to have an Austin pipe organ to provide music for worship, as well as for recitals and concerts. Our organ was given as a memorial to honor Edward Payton Willson (1832-1910) by his widow, Olive Sinks Willson. The organ builder, John Turnell Austin, came to Leavenworth at Mrs. Willson’s request to view the church and determine how to install the organ. The Willson Memorial Organ was #389 for the Austin Organ Company, and the first in the area. It was dedicated June 16, 1912.
