First Presbyterian Church of Monroe welcomes you to our website! Located in the heart of Downtown Monroe, across the street from the Monroe County Courthouse and on Loranger Square, our church provided shelter for the Underground Railroad. Dr. John Montieth, was the founding Pastor and the first President of the University of Michigan. Miss Libbie Bacon and General George Custer were married in our sanctuary. Founded in 1820 our church is older than the State of Michigan. 

We are a congregation of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and a member of Maumee Valley Presbytery.

The heartbeat of our church is love of God and love of neighbor. To show love of neighbor we have temporarily suspended in-person worship; yet our work and mission is ongoing. Won’t you partner with us in making a difference in someone’s life by giving now?
