First Presbyterian Church

Spruce Pine, North Carolina

Online Giving Now Available!

First Presbyterian Church is pleased to announce that we now have Online Giving. It is easier than ever to make a donation to First Presbyterian Church from the comfort of your home. You can make a one time donation, pay your regular tithes or set up automatic monthly payments. This is a safe and secure way, especially during the pandemic, to ensure that your contributions continue in a timely manner.

When you use the "Click Here to Donate Online Now" button shown below, you will be directed to our Online Giving page at eservicepayments.com. This is administered through the Presbyterian Foundation of PCUSA. You will not be charged a fee for the use of this service and you can use a credit or debit card in addition to a withdrawal from your checking or savings account. The first time you use Online Giving, you will need to set up a profile with your unique user id and password. After that you will be asked to locate your church. First Presbyterian Church can be found by zip code or name. If you would prefer, there's also a free GivePlus Mobile app that can be downloaded through Apple or Android app stores.

For those of you more comfortable with writing a check and mailing that in or dropping it off to our lockbox, nothing will change for you. However, if you are interested in saving a few steps in your busy week Online Giving may be a good option. Please feel free to call Frankie Pryor in the church office at 828-765-4036 with any questions or concerns. We are here to help!

VIRTUAL WORSHIP

Because of the increase of viral spread in our county due to the coronavirus pandemic, the session has decided to pause our indoor worship plans. We are offering a weekly live Zoom Worship Service each Sunday. We start gathering online at 10:45am and worship begins at 11:00am. The video recording of this week's service is posted below. If you would like to receive the Zoom link by mail, please contact our church office at spfirstpressoffice@gmail.com or call 828-765-4036.

Our session will be evaluating worship plans weekly and we will continue to keep our congregation posted. First Presbyterian Church extends heartfelt prayers to all those in our community who are suffering from the COVID-19 pandemic and especially to those who have lost family members. Please continue to follow the 3 W's: Wear a Cloth Mask, Wait 6 Feet Apart and Wash your Hands!
