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.




Adult Education Class
October 13, 20, 27 & November 3
8:30 am

Please join us for a four part series by Martha Rockenstein, the creator of Journey to Wholeness, starting October 13 during our Adult Education time. Martha will lead participants in a sampling of contemplative spiritual practices that bring awareness of God’s love for each of us and the Divine light within. We live in a world with an abundance of brokenness, suffering and pain. Yet, many of us long to rise out of this brokenness, suffering and pain. We yearn for wholeheartedness and to experience God’s healing love. We long for a deeper connection with others, God, and ourselves. We will begin our time together with an introduction to Contemplative Spiritual Practices. Each week we will learn about and actively participate in a different spiritual practice (or two). We will learn a little of the history and why of the practices. However, we will spend a majority of the time actively partaking in the following practices: meditation, mandalas and praying in color, journaling/writing, and labyrinths.

Martha is a Certified Spiritual Director and holds a Master of Arts in Christian Education from Union Presbyterian Seminary and has worked in Christian education for many years.  To learn even more about Martha, visit her website at
