I’m New to First Presbyterian

Where is First Presbyterian located?
We are located at 430 S. Carancahua St., on the bluff in downtown Corpus Christi, overlooking the bay. 
 
 
Where do I go when I arrive?
Park in the large parking lot on the south side of the church marked with our First Presbyterian Church sign. You may enter at the main entrance facing the parking lot, or you may walk around to the front (facing the bay). There is a ramp in the front on the S. Upper Broadway side that is handicap accessible.  Security is provided.
 
 
What should I wear?
Wear what makes you comfortable. People in our congregation wear anything from jeans, shorts, and t-shirts to suits and dresses. 
What is there for my children?
Our children and youth ministries meet at 9:45 a.m. for praise and worship, Bible study, crafts and friendship.
 
The youth (grades 6-12) meet at 6:00 p.m. on Sunday evenings for food, fellowship, study, games and prayer.
 
For infants and toddlers, we provide a professionally-staffed nursery (see campus map).
 
Can I bring my children into worship with me?
Of course. We believe it’s important for children and parents to worship together. During the 11:00 a.m. worship service, we have a children’s message that the children are welcome to join the pastor for at the front of the sanctuary when he calls them up. 
 
What “brand” of Presbyterians are you?
