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

  • Recorded Church Service for April 11, 2021

    Text:  John 20:19-31
    Life and Peace
    Preacher: Rev. Martha Langford

    Hear the Sermon

    On that Easter Sunday, Jesus appears in the disciples' midst. He greets them with words of "Shalom!" and breathes into them the breath of the Spirit. They can't contain their joy but Thomas, who wasn't there, is a skeptic. Like a Missouri native, he says, "Show me!" Our attention is drawn to the Thomas drama. Yet, in the light of Easter we are invited to pay attention to the persistence presence of our Lord who seeks us out in love so that we may have life in his name!

    Text:  John 20:1-18
    Sermon: Empty and Full

    Preacher: Rev. Martha Langford
    Duet: Lisa and Marissa Muras

    Hear the Service

    Mary Magdalene finds the stone rolled away and her fear carries her to the disciples with these words, "They have taken the Lord out of the tomb..." The disciples race to the tomb and, where Mary sees heartbreak, they see hope. Memory and imagination stir, THIS is what it means to be raised from the dead.
