Holy Week and Easter Worship Services 2018

“We warmly invite you to join us at the First Presbyterian Church of Monroe for a celebration of Christ’s resurrection and his saving power.  Jesus says, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.  Go therefore and make disciples’ (Matt. 28:18-19a).  If you are a disciple of our Lord and wish to follow him, please offer him your presence in worship.”

--Annemarie S. Kidder, Pastor

Please join us!!



The members of the First Presbyterian Church of Monroe welcome you!  As you peruse our website, we hope you catch a glimpse of who we are and what we stand for.

Our imposing historic building sits right on Loranger Square, next to the Courthouse and across the Lotus Fountain in downtown Monroe.  It is a beacon to a venerable history:  Our founding pastor was Dr. John Monteith, the first president of the University of Michigan; our facility hosted the wedding of General Custer and provided shelter for the Underground Railroad; and the church itself is older than the state of Michigan.

Such history bears witness today in what we believe and who we are.  We are a vibrant and diverse congregation whose mission is to serve Jesus Christ.  When our worship concludes with the sung benediction, our service in the world and in this city begins.

Come join us for Sunday worship and find out how Christ can change lives, yours and mine!

The Rev. Annemarie S. Kidder, Ph.D.
