"I’m New…"

What can I expect when I visit?
Sunday mornings at First Prez are active! Once you park (we have plenty of parking) you will be greeted by friendly faces. If you have children, visit our Children’s Ministry Area to drop off the kids before heading to our hour-long worship service in the Sanctuary. Ushers will then greet you and hand you a copy of our weekly bulletin, full of all the information about the events and classes you will want to take part in.

Our attendees dress in a variety of styles. So whether you are dressed casually or in your "Sunday best," you will not feel out of place. When you arrive for service, you may park in any available space in our parking lot, or on the median strip with the grass blocks (if it’s open). Please be mindful of spaces reserved for those with special needs.

After the service, head over to our fellowship hall in the Fellowship Hall and enjoy a free latte while enjoying the incredible view of the Pali and the ocean. There is also a Ko’olau Kitchen where you can purchase lunch for a modest price.

Whether you are a lifelong church-goer or this is your first time in a church, you will find a warm welcome at First Prez. Our hope is that you will take the next step and become a part of our community.

When are your worship services and what are they like?
We offer three Sunday services to fit your busy schedule: 8 and 9:30 and 11:11 a.m. Pick the service that is most convenient for you. Our 8 and 9:30 services celebrate Christ’s love through a wonderful blend of traditional and contemporary music. You will enjoy the sacred choral pieces, beloved hymns and worshipful choruses. With the sounds of our Chancel Choir and organ you will encounter a sacred worship experience as well as dynamic preaching. Our 11:11 service provides contemporary music in a vibrant, energetic setting. You will hear the same sermon in a more casual setting.

What do you have for my family?
We work hard in our children’s program to make sure that your children come to a safe, fun environment.  When your kids enter our program on Sunday morning, they will experience solid Biblical learning, fellowship with peers and personalize small group time with teachers.  Our dedicated volunteer staff strives each week to guarantee Sunday is the best hour of the week for your children!

If you’re a Middle School or High School student, First Prez is the place to be! Both Middle High and Senior High School students have a dynamic program which begins at 9:45 on Sunday mornings. It is filled with amazing skits, super-fun worship and best of all connection time in small groups encountering God. We also have mid week programs for both the Mid Hi and Senior Hi students. We hope that you will join us this Sunday to discover how you can be a part of this fun-filled, meaningful experience. See you soon!?

What does First Prez believe?
We are Christians. Christians are people who believe in Jesus Christ and trust Him to lead our lives. We are also Presbyterians. Presbyterians, first of all, are Christians. We believe in one God who revealed Himself and His plans for us in the Bible and especially through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

We are members of the Covenant Order of Evangelical Presbyterians (ECO) and as such we are an expression of Reformed Christianity, a part of the (universal) holy catholic church celebrated in the Apostles’ Creed, a people whose roots go back to John Calvin at the time of the Reformation.

First Presbyterian Church has approximately 1,300 members, a Session (Board of Elders) consisting of 23 lay men and women Elders, three associate pastors, and the senior pastor, who serves as moderator. The Session is responsible for the whole life of the church. The Elders are elected for three-year terms. The Board of Deacons, charged with nurturing the congregation and ministering to those in need, consists of  33 Deacons elected for three-year terms. We are a family; and we’d like to be your family. Please join us.
