Q: Do you have Sunday School classes?
A: Study opportunities are available through regular Sunday School classes for children beginning at age three through adults. A nursery is provided for children under age two during Sunday School.
Q: Where do I park and where do I enter the church?
A: First Presbyterian is located in downtown Jefferson City and thus does not have a large dedicated parking lot. There are a number of parking options on all sides of the building. The main entrance is on the east side of the building off Madison Street. In addition, there are side and back entrances on the north and west sides of the building. Handicap parking is available in the alley (Wall Street) between the church and Hawthorn Bank and on Madison Street in front of the church on Sunday mornings. You may enter through any of these doors. See map.
Q: How do people dress for service?
A: At the traditional worship services, you’ll see many people wearing their “Sunday best,” but you’re also likely to see others in slacks and a casual shirt or sweater. At the contemporary worship service “Sunday Night Live @5,” you will be comfortable in very casual attire including jeans and shorts.
