Clop Clop on the Reedy: A Tale of Huguenot Mill

“Clop Clop on the Reedy: A Tale of Huguenot Mill” follows the struggle of 3 characters in the 1890s: MaryLou (a 15-year-old biscuit-maker), Ambrose (a Horse Cab Driver, known locally as “The Story Man”), and Charles H. Lanneau Jr. (historic founder of the Huguenot Mill.) Their responses to a tragic event in 1892 propel the action through 1907—all woven together by a whimsical Narrator/Stagehand named Hack who rolls the actors past images of Old Greenville in an authentic horse cart.

The hour-long, one-act performance is sponsored by a Metropolitan Arts Council grant as well as the Fine Arts Ministry of First Presbyterian Church of Greenville. The new play written by First Pres covenant partner, Dave Burke, will receive its premiere performance on Friday, May 31 at 7:00pm. Doors open at 6:00pm with a preshow talk by John Nolan at 6:30pm.

Tenth Avenue North: The Invited Tour

Tenth Avenue North: The Invited Tour

Worship & Arts Center at First Presbyterian Church, Greenville, SC

Friday, September 20, 2024 at 7:00pm

Tenth Avenue North has always been a band of deep conviction. They’ve never shied away from uncomfortable topics. They’ve never stopped asking hard questions. What they thought was the end of Tenth Avenue North in 2020 – with a farewell tour disrupted by the global pandemic – turned into a four-year hiatus that sharpened the band’s focus and cemented the convictions that made them one of the most popular bands in Christian music. “I want our music to speak truth but also honor what can often be a struggle to accept what is true,” says Donehey. “‘Losing’ is about the struggle to forgive. ‘Suddenly’ is about what happens when you finally get there.”

Mysterion: A Collection of Works by Makoto Fujimura

MYSTERION EXHIBIT 

The Galleries at First Pres is pleased to exhibit Mysterion, a collection of works by renowned contemporary artist, Makoto Fujimura. Makoto Fujimura is a leading contemporary artist whose process driven, refractive “slow art” has been described by David Brooks of New York Times as “a small rebellion against the quickening of time”. His bicultural arts education led his style towards a fusion between fine art and abstract expressionism, together with the traditional Japanese art of Nihonga and Kacho-ga (bird-and-flower painting tradition). 

The Galleries at First Presbyterian Church will also be open for the MAC First Fridays gallery crawl from 6:00-9:00pm starting in April through July.
