First Presbyterian Church

We are a warm and inviting Christian community where all are welcome.  It is the purpose and desire of First Presbyterian Church of South Saint Paul to open our doors to anyone seeking love and acceptance.  Inspiring worship experiences and challenging learning opportunities encourage us to serve others as well as to laugh and play together.

The Christian faith is to be lived and not memorized.  We allow ourselves the freedom to ask difficult questions about God, about our world and about how we are to live our lives to the fullest.  Wherever you are along life’s journey, we will help you find encouragement and support, rest and refreshment, joy and laughter, inspiration and challenge.




FPC-SSP is asking everyone to please abide by the 8 p.m. curfew set by our city leaders. The safety of our members and our communities are our top priority. Please be at home, stay at home and stay safe tonight.

There is a time to speak out and a time to remain silent. There are the times when the most difficult and faithful response is silence; a reverent silence that creates a space for our cries of anguish, our cries for justice and our cries to God in prayers. We have difficulty with silence. It is uncomfortable and it raises questions of our own complicity, but for today let this be a time when we pause and reflect on the pain and grief and trauma in the world, and how we will change to contribute to our healing. 

There will be time in the coming days, weeks, months and years to use our words for reconciliation and to challenge ourselves to be better; to speak out against injustice in solidarity with our marginalized black and brown brothers and sisters; to acknowledge the realities of white privilege and systemic racism. Until then we pray for peace, strength, and vision.
