Pastor of the Day

One of our pastors is on call every day, 24 hours a day. The Pastor of the Day can be reached during normal office hours by calling the church at 235.0496 and asking for the Pastor of the Day. After hours contact can be made by calling the Church main number, 235.0496, and then pressing "2" for Pastor of the Day information. Pastors are generally available for short term counseling on an individual basis by contacting the Pastors individually.

In the event of the death of a loved one, First Presbyterian Church strives to serve members and their families with compassion and understanding. During business hours (Monday-Friday, 8:30am-5:00pm), contact Lynn Johnson, 565.0972, to notify her of the death. After office hours and on weekends, call the Pastor of the Day (235-0496; choose option 2).

Hospital Visitation Ministry

Our Pastors are scheduled to visit the hospitals every day and the nursing homes every week. Homebound members are visited quarterly and offered Communion. If you are scheduled to go into a hospital or nursing home, or if you are homebound and can't get to church, please contact the church so we will be sure to provide ongoing pastoral care (235.0496 or email contactus@firstpresgreenville.org.

Our Deacons and Elders visit hospitals on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays to relieve our pastors for the weekend and reach out to the congregational members, families, and staff who are current patients.
