                                                                             Dear Family and Friends,

In-person worship began again on November 1st,  and there were smiles behind every mask!

Oh, how we’ve missed meeting together

and knowing the sweet, sweet spirit of the Lord in this place.    

If you cannot join us in person,  you may view the service on Facebook or the FPCW website.

The worship service bulletin is also posted on the website - under the menu tab "Resources."

For those attending in-person, there will be physical distancing

and mask wearing. You may also be ushered to a spot that isn’t “your” pew!

Please be patient with these procedures, as we do our best to keep you safe and well.

                                                                                                                 Blessings & love,

                                                                                                           Pastor Holly

"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

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.
