Welcome to First Presbyterian

We invite you to visit and explore our many programs and service opportunities! First Pres provides you the worship, educational and service opportunities of a large church, while at the same time offering you the warmth and closeness of a small church in our small group ministries. Our Youth and Children’s' programs provide your children with a rich set of experiences and life lessons that will guide them as they mature in the Christian faith.

Come visit us at 1432 Washtenaw Avenue between Hill Street and South University Avenue, on the southeastern edge of the University of Michigan campus. All are welcome!

Praise God from Whom All Blessings Flow! 

The Reverend Dave Prentice-Hyers was elected to be our new Lead Pastor!  His first day among us in worship as Lead Pastor will be Sunday, June 12. 

On behalf of our staff, who worked with a great team and over several weeks to put this introductory piece together, we invite you to meet us in this place of tremendous joy by clicking the link below.  Hear from our new Lead Pastor, members of the PNC, and a colleague of Dave’s.  Take a few moments to begin to get to know our new Pastor and his beautiful family. 

We are overjoyed to bring you this video opportunity to meet Dave! 

Learn much more about Dave and his family here.
