The First Presbyterian Church of Waynesville is a vibrant community of faith to call home. Everyone is welcome and each of you is valued.  Our varied backgrounds and stories woven together produce a beautiful tapestry of faith, bound together with a common mission of loving God and our neighbors.

Welcome to First Presbyterian!

I’m so glad you stopped by to take a closer look at this beautiful church, nestled in the majestic mountains of Western North Carolina in the charming town of Waynesville. If you are searching for a place of worship that feels like “home” – this is the place for you! 

We are a community of Christ-followers who love to gather together in joyful worship of God.

We hope this site gives you an idea of who we are and what we believe, but you won’t really know unless you come and see for yourself!

Tenth Annual Craft Fair - A Two-Saturday Event

October 13th and October 20th

The Crafters' Guild at First Presbyterian Waynesville is  a busy bunch.   They work all year long to stock this event with hand crafted gifts, keepsakes, collectibles, home decor, holiday decorations and much more.  The church's Fellowship Hall is turned into a treasure trove for the savvy shopper.  The baked goods and preserves always go quickly. The Guild's purpose is to support the church's Mission Team, with proceeds going to many local charities.  

Make this event a priority for your October weekends!

"Dancing with the Devil" - Dave Crane's Recount of The Special Court for Sierra Leone - drew a crowd  at the First Presbyterian Church Fellowship Hall July 19th.  Crane shared personal struggles and stories of his three years in west Africa, bringing to justice those responsible for crimes against humanity in the bloody civil war there.
