WELCOME TO THE FIRST PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH OF HARTFORD 

We are building a warm and caring community that spiritually nurtures people in worship, education, fellowship and active involvement in mission.


WELCOME

We are glad you have found us.  We know it’s not easy to visit a new congregation for the first time and we hope the information found here will help you feel more comfortable walking through our doors for the first time.

The best way to get to know us, however, is to visit us some Sunday morning.  You can learn some facts about us on these pages. But what counts ultimately is the kind of experience you will have as part of our community. 

Our members and participants will tell you that by being part of this community of Christian faith they have experienced:

The warmth of inclusive hospitality  

The joy of praise and thanksgiving  

The insights of wise, thoughtful preaching and teaching  

The embrace of sincere prayer  

The chance to serve a world in need  

The challenge to learn and grow in the love, knowledge, and service of God and the world  

The support of a healing community amid life's transitions and challenges                  

MISSION

As empowered by the Spirit of the living God, we seek to reflect Jesus Christ who calls us to lives of justice and joy and to embody what the Reign of God looks like as we:

Live generously  

Show hospitality  

Seek simplicity  

Act creatively  

Serve others  

Ask more questions than give answers  

Bear witness to the love and justice of God  Live with open eyes and grateful hearts

God has told you, O mortal, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?
— Micah 6:8
