"And above all, love one another deeply from the heart."   - 1Peter 1:22


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!

​​​​​​​- Pastor Holly

CONGRATS & SEND-OFF to Ian Hutchison

Our own Ian Hutchison has graduated from high school and is leaving shortly for the Navy.  Pastor Holly spent some time with him over the weekend of June 19th.    Click on the photo to watch the video, then send up a little prayer to wish him God speed.

Hunger Grant

On behalf of the Hunger Committee, Riley Covan and Pat Briggs presented a check for $6,000 to the Haywood County Learning Center to support their meal program.   Brookley Nicholson, Diirector of HCLC graciously accepted our contribution.  The purpose of HCLC is to enable high school dropouts to earn a diploma.  70% of these dropouts have low income, 40-60% are homeless, some have had behavior problems.  The program enrolls 75-150 dropouts each year.  In the  12 years it has been in operation, 700 have earned their diploma.  Because it is a program and not a school, there are no funds provided by the state for meals.  Seven churches, including FPCW,  provide at least one meal a month and businesses supply food as well.  Our contribution will go along way in providing needed meals for the children.

2019 Christmas Cheer Breakfast

Another very successful Chirstmas Cheer Breakfast.  A record crowd to greet Santa and to join him for breakfast.  All the elves did an outstanding job.


Board of Deacons

This last Sunday Pastor Holly conducted the ordination and installation of our Board of Deacons.  They will help to support our congregational care efforts.



2019 Church Picnic

Perfect weather, good  food (and plenty of it) and great fellowship.  As usual our Hospitality Team did an outstanding job!!


FROZEN CHOZEN GOLF CLASSIC - May 9th - Maggie Valley

This group of seventeen psyched players teamed up on Thursday, May 9th, at the Maggie Valley Country Club.  At stake was the Frozen Chozen Golf Classic Trophy for the winning team, playing under Captain's Choice rules for the nine-hole round that afternoon.

The trophy and other awards were presented at the BOOMERS dinner following play that evening.   And everyone - players and planners alike - got a huge round of applause.   The trophy is on permanent display in the church library.  

Meet our newest members....Tammy, Greg, Mary and  Pat.  Most of you have already met them, but if not, give them some FPCW hospitality.  We are delighted to have them as part of our church family!
