Welcome home to First Presbyterian Church Burlington Iowa! We have what you are looking for...

This coming Sunday, January 25 at 4 p.m. First Presbyterian Church will host a hymn festival called The Conversion of Saint Paul. The program tells the story of Paul's conversion in scripture, wonderful poetry by Susan Palo Cherwein, and a variety of music which includes both solo vocal and instrumental music organ literature and hymns. The hymns include Amazing grace! How sweet the sound. A reception will follow the Hymn Festival in Fellowship Hall. You are cordially invited to attend and bring your friends.

There is an invitation to sing in the choir for the two very accessible anthems. The rehearsal is at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday. The anthems are a two-part setting by Robert Hobby of Beloved, God's Chosen and a largely unison anhem by Donald Callen Freed called Love divine, all love's excelling. For those wishing to practice the anhems prior to Sunday you may attend a rehearsal on Thursday, January 22 at 7 p.m.

We are a mission oriented family who want to celebrate God's grace with fun, fellowship and worship. Take some time to look around our site and see how you can be a part of connecting with Christ.

The mission of First Presbyterian Church is to help make connections between people and Christ, among people who worship and serve together, between our members, their ministry and the needs of the world.
