At Home in the Heart of the City

For over 130 years First Presbyterian Church has called Downtown Fresno it's home. As the population spread out far and wide, our congregation continually renewed its commitment to stay located in the heart of the city. Why? Probably for some of the same reasons you chose to live here, too. We believe the diversity and vibrancy of this community reflect God’s Kingdom, and we want to participate in the work He is doing here. We hope you will join us.


Out of love for one another and our community, we're adjusting our gatheirng times, locations and sizes to the threat level in our community. Sunday Worship Services are currently virtual @ 9am on First Pres Live via YouTube & In Person Outdoors on our patio @ 10:45am. Services from previous weeks are available anytime on the YouTube Channel or on the Resource/Sermons page of our website. Read about our health and safety guidelines for all our gatherings on this Being the Church in the Midst of COVID page of our website.  

This Advent Season we're joining in with the themes of the Advent Conspiracy. Download this fun AdventConspiracy-Calendar.pdf. Also, let us know if you'd like to receive the daily liturgy we're emailing. (Email
