FPC Eufaula is a community of faith seeking to know Christ and make Christ known. Grounded in love for all God's children, we seek to do justice, to love kindness, and walk humbly with our God. We are an open and inclusive congregation who will show God's love to all and care for all God's people.
FPC Eufaula is a member of the Presbyterian Church (USA) and the Presbytery of Sheppards and Lapsley.
The Presbyterian Church (USA) calls in our Book of Order that "a congregation shall welcome all persons who trust in God’s grace in Jesus Christ and desire to become part of the fellowship and ministry of his Church." Furthermore, we are called also not discriminate for any reason. In other words, everyone is welcome and accepted here.
First Presbyterian Church of Eufaula is a church in transition. Our beloved pastor of the past seven years has answered God’s call to lead a new church. Our Pastor Nominating Committee (PNC) will be working diligently with God’s leading to find the right person to shepherd our church into the future. First Presbyterian will have supply pastors for the foreseeable future. If you have questions about our church or are interested in joining our congregation, please speak to one of the ushers or a session member. Thank you for your support, patience and especially your prayers.
