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

  • Services for the Rev. Dr. Gerald Hurst

    Friends, after the sad news of Jerry Hurst's death, we share this information about plans for his Memorial Service. The service will be held March 13 at 1:00pm. St Paul Lutheran Church has graciously offered their sanctuary which has a greater seating capacity as well as overflow space in their Fellowship Hall. A reception will follow on the side lawn of First Presbyterian Church.

    This church and the local community have been blessed by Jerry’s ministry here in LaGrange. He had a deft touch at fostering relationships through his compassionate service, inquiring mind, and listening ear. Deep collegiality and ecumenicism marked his work with area pastors and congregations, coming to full expression during Hurricane Harvey recovery operations. It was a joy to name him Pastor Emeritus after his retirement. Though we are deeply saddened by his death, we can be confident in the gospel promises which Jerry proclaimed in word and in deed.

    In Denial

    Hear the Sermon
    Preacher: Rev. Martha Langford

    Jesus tells the disciples in clear and certain language what is coming as they go to Jerusalem. Suffering, rejection, execution, resurrection—that is what's coming. Peter would deny Jesus that path, and is rebuked. Jesus then turns to the great crowd of followers and tells them  "If any want to become my followers, let them deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me." This is a different kind of of denial. What does it look like in our lives to take up our cross and follow Jesus?
