The First Presbyterian Church is an intimate community of over 86 members. We started back in 1842 and have been serving the Waverly, OH community ever since.
Feel free to join us as we celebrate life, community, and the Joy of Christ.
Church Building will be closed until further notice. (See Technology letter below:)
We will be meeting through technology:
The Christian faith is incarnational! God came to us in the flesh in Jesus! So we strive to meet face to face so we can be the Body of Christ for one another and the world. However, during this time we need to "stay in touch... from a distance."
FPC is called to show love to one another by maintaining our distance while staying in touch. This means we will need to utilize methods that are not familiar nor ideal.
Therefore we are using technology to meet for abbreviated Worship Sunday mornings at 10:45 am, and for Prayer Services weekday afternoons at 4:30pm.
You can either call in with your phone or use your computer at attend. Instructions below:
If you are using a phone to connect,
Dial (312) 626-6799, then when requested enter the meeting ID: 505 034 8646 and then press #. Then follow the instructions. If you are able, put your phone on speaker and place it on a nearby table. We understand that if you have a phone without a speaker and need to hold it to your ear It will be difficult for more than one of you to participate at a time. Please make sure there is not a lot of sound around you because that will be picked up by the call and disturb the rest of the participants. When that happens, we will have to mute your microphone.
Computer users: Open your browser (Internet Explorer or Chrome) and enter https://zoom.us/i/5050348646 in the address bar. You should be able to hear the service through your computer speakers and speak if you have a microphone connected to your computer. The first week we will have someone online in the meeting room 30 minutes before the service begins to help people making connections.

The Official Seal
The official seal of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) was adopted in 1985. At first glance it looks like a cross. But, it is intended to capture some of the important emphases of the Reformed tradition.
The seal is comprised of the symbol, the basic components of which are Cross, Scripture, a descending Dove at the upper part of the cross, and Flames on either side of the lower part of the cross, and the name of the denomination, Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), encircles the symbol. It was designed by Malcolm Grear and Associates.
The Cross represents the incarnate love of God in Jesus Christ, and his passion and resurrection. Because of its association with Presbyterian history, the Celtic cross was chosen.
