First Presbyterian Church
First Presbyterian Church welcomes all who seek Christ to the 9:00 am contemporary service and 11:00 am traditional service on Sundays. We are located on the corner of South Temple and C Street (400E) in the Avenues neighborhood of Salt Lake City.
At the 9:00 am service, contemporary music is provided by the Rising Sound praise band, while at the 11:00 am traditional service the Organist and Choir lead the congregation in hymns and anthems. The same sermon (message) is delivered at these services by Pastor Steve Aeschbacher, Pastoral Associate Christine Myers-Tegeder, or occasionally by a member of the congregation. After each service light refreshments are available in the fellowship area. At 9:00 & 11:00 am on the first Sunday of each month, The Lord’s Supper (communion, eucharist, sacrament) consisting of bread and grape juice is offered for those who wish to participate.
The church provides a nursery on the second floor for children up to 3 years old at both services. At the 11:00 am traditional service children age 3 – 5th grade are invited to the front of the church for a special children’s sermon gathered around the pastor or leader. They are then led to their classrooms for a children’s program until the end of the service. For more information visit our Children’s Ministry page.
