                                                                             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
