We here at First Presbyterian Church of La Grange, Texas want to thank you for dropping in to our website. If you are a “frequent flyer” to this page, we hope you will let us know if anything is incorrect or out-of-date. If this is your first time to check us out, we hope that you will go to the various menus and learn more about our mission opportunities, our people, and our programs. My wife Pam and I came to La Grange to retire, but the spiritual energy and people dynamic here drew me out of retirement to be the pastor of this wonderful church!
So look closely, I think you just might find just the place where God wants you to be …

The LitWits Book Club is a group of people from across Fayette County. Our next meeting will be on August 2, 2016 at 5:00. We are suggesting that we meet at Reba’s (in the back room) for book discussion and then stay on for dinner. Many of us were doing this after bookclub, so why not just start out there with your wine and cheese, etc. Get back to me with your thoughts and kick your “reading horse” into a gallop; Hamilton will take awhile to get through. Don’t forget to send me your book selections for the balance of the year.
. Any one interested in joining these lively discussions is welcome to attend.
