Welcome to First Presbyterian Church of LaGrange, Texas. We are glad to introduce you to this lively community of faith in Central Texas. In six words, our ministry ethos is this: compassionate action, modeling faith, building community. We serve the local community through the AMEN Food Pantry, Second Chance Emporium, the LaGrange Area Ministerial Alliance, and a host of volunteer service.

We are a multi-generational congregation with a heart for worship and service, prayer and study, fellowship and care for others. Our children lead us each week as they gather and bless donations for the Food Pantry. We celebrate the Lord’s Supper on the first Sunday of each month; share table fellowship at the Second Sunday Lunch, and worship week to week seeking to “glorify God and to enjoy God forever.”

We seek to build community with family and friends and guests, with the community, with other congregations, and as we pursue an international partnership with a church from the Czech Republic.

To quote one of our members, we are people who have fun doing good things with and for others.

We hope that you will visit so that we may get to know you.

The Rev. Martha Langford, Pastor

  • Choir Director Hired

    Laura Gillette

    The Session is pleased to announce the selection of Laura Gillette to lead our Chancel Choir. She has most recently served with Mount Calvary Lutheran Church in LaGrange, and has a history with First Presbyterian Church that goes back to the days when her grandmother, Ann Moss, was organist here.
    She played with our choir under the direction of Linda Smalley, and has provided special music during worship alongside Jean McHenry. We are enthusiastic about her qualifications and personal style.
    Laura's family includes her husband, Dr. Ken Bockhorn, a veterinarian who works at the Neighborhood Veterinary Center in Waller. Their son Miles is a sophomore at Baylor University studying Applied Music (Piano Performance). 
  • Recorded Church Service for June 13, 2021

    Text: Psalm 19
    Sermon: Heavens are Telling 

    Hear the Sermon

    Preacher: Rev. Martha C. Langford

    Liturgist:  Larry Grigsby

    Pianist:  Jean McHenry

    Ushers:  Gene and Anna Oeding

    PASTOR'S PREVIEW: The Psalms contain words of prayer, poetry, and melody, words of liturgy and instruction. They are and have been a rich treasure for the theologians of the church who find in them words that orient us to God; words that help us cry out when our lives are disrupted by the powers of this world; words that express our thanksgiving when God's redemption finds us and we are restored. It is—according to Walter Brueggemann—the pattern found in the life, death, and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. A pattern that informs our faith and the shape of our lives.
