A Family Church
At First Presbyterian Church, we call ourselves a family. We are committed to building friendships and fostering diversity in our community. Our faith is always growing as we worship, learn and serve the wider Warren community.
Our congregation was formed in 1943 among the growing Presbyterian community in Warren. The original church building was on Cunningham Street in Warren, but when the congregation outgrew their sanctuary, First United Presbyterian Church moved to the current location on 12 Mile Road in 1965. In 1998, the property behind the church was sold to accommodate the new Village of Warren Glenn senior living community.
As Presbyterians, we believe that God loves us out of grace, not because of anything we say or do. The grace of God in Jesus Christ is more inclusive, forgiving, and loving than any of us can imagine. We would love for you to celebrate this good news with us.
We are members of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) through the Presbytery of Detroit, and we celebrate our connections to Christians around the United States and the world. You can learn more about what it means to be Presbyterian here.
All are welcome to fully participate in the life of our church no matter sexual orientation, gender, race, (dis)ability, or socio-economic status.
Feels Like Home
"I can feel and see and taste and experience the presence of our LORD at First Church. After being a member of this church for 35 years and attending as a child, I also feel a sense of responsibility for it. I had the great pleasure of knowing and working with many wonderful people over the years (although I didn’t always realize this at the time) and I want to carry on their legacy, so all their hard work isn’t for naught. First Church is part of my extended family which I wouldn’t trade for anything." - Glenn McIntyre
Why do we LOVE our church?
"The day I joined the church was one of the best days of my life. When I moved into the Village of Warren Glenn, I was excited to attend the church next door. Right away, the church helped me feel welcome and at ease in worship. I know that I belong here as a member of God’s family. Our church’s mission is amazing. I want to memorize our mission statement because it inspires me to be a more faithful Christian every day. We truly foster friendship and diversity and reach out to the community in faith." - Sue Cicinelli
"The church has taught me so much about God and Christian faith. God’s teachings have taught me to look at other people in need and to help them before I do things for myself. Whether I am away at college or at home, I try to put other people first. This church has helped open my eyes to these people in need through mission projects such as the MCREST the rotating shelter, Blanket Sunday and my involvement in the youth group." -Kevin Kausch
