Inclusivity at Old First
Old First Presbyterian Church is an inclusive community of faith united by trust in God and faith in Jesus Christ. We warmly welcome all who accept and respond to God's saving grace in Jesus Christ and who desire to participate in the life and ministry of this church.
Old First seeks to build a nurturing Christian Community from the diversity of the city: singles and couples, gay and straight; retirees, families with children and young adults; all from a variety of income, ethnic, educational and theological backgrounds.
Old First is a founding member of the Covenant Network of Presbyterians:
The Covenant Network of Presbyterians is a broad-based, national group of clergy and lay leaders working for a church that is simultaneously faithful, just, and whole. We seek to support the mission and unity of the Presbyterian Church (USA) in a time of potentially divisive controversy. We intend to articulate and act on the church's historic, progressive vision and to work for a fully inclusive church.
