"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!

Communion Sunday - First Sunday of the Month

The invitation to receive the Sacrament of Holy Communion is extended to all who put their trust in Jesus Christ, who come in faith, repentence and love.  At FPCW, Holy Communion is served each month on the first Sunday.  






Following worship on June 10th - members, friends and Presbytery folks will gather in the FPCW Fellowship Hall to celebrate the payoff and retirement of the Building Loan undertaken by the church in 2013.  No small accomplishment!  The loan has been paid off a year early, and is cause for much joy and gratitude among the church fellowship - who were so generously responsible.
