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!

Tenth Annual Craft Fair - Another Success!

The Craft Guild   -- with the purpose of supporting the church's Mission Team -- delivered

another home run!    

The several thousand dollars raised this year

  will be donated to local charities . 

Helping in the fundraising  was the ParkingTeam from the church's Men's Group, who parked hundreds of cars in the church lot and surrounding area. The monies raised will also go to local charities, and this year will include folks struggling in the aftermath of Hurricane Florence. 

Big thanks to everyone who made this year's Fairs such a happy success:  crafters, bakers, jammers, parkers, parkees, shoppers and volunteering staffers.  Well done!!
