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!

First Cook-In for Haywood Pathways - Friday, May 4th

 Our new sexton (Scott Lawrence) recently brought us an outreach opportunity.  He and his family have been cooking dinner for 60 [in their home kitchen!] every other month for residents at Pathways Shelter. He asked if he might use the church kitchen to do this.  And guess what?  The Men of the Church are adopting this project – helping cook and deliver the meals every other month from the church kitchen.  The ingredients are provided by other supporting organizations – FPCW will be the helping hands.  And we all know our guys can cook!!  The first COOK-IN at FPCW will be May 4th at 4:00. If getting involved appeals to you, contact the church office. (456-3243).   Sign-Up sheet is also on the Bulletin Board.  


This year's movie series begins Sunday, May 6th.   The kick-off selection is entitled "Guided by the Word."  A popular faith-based film from 2017, its message is that everyone needs a guide and the importance of forgiveness. 

Join this Sunday afternoon get-together.  4:00 p.m. in the church parlor.  Hot popcorn, drinks and other goodies.  



Find new ways to experience growing older.   Aging as a spiritual practice.

Friday, May 18th - 9:00 - 3:00.   Church Fellowship Hall.  Guest moderator. $15 includes morning coffee and lunch.  Deadline to reserve and pay = May 7th.
