Welcome to First Presbyterian Church of La Crosse, Wisconsin!

“More than just Sunday Morning”

 At First Presbyterian Church, we are more than just Sunday morning. We strive to take our faith in Jesus Christ and put it to work in the world. Our Ministry Teams are “the driving force of our church” that carry us into ministry. For a complete list of our Ministry Teams, visit our Ministries page.

A Summer for Experiencing Our Bodies as God’s Gift

This summer, while Pastor Taylor is on renewal leave, (biking, swimming and running across the country), our congregation is invited to be more intentional about experiencing our bodies as God’s gift! Our Renewal Leave Team is making exciting plans for this summer, and you are invited to be a part.

On May 27th we’ll kick off our summer with worship together at 9am. A portion of our parking lot will be transformed into an expo to help us launch “Our Bodies” summer! Some of the opportunities that day will include:

  • a healthy lunch , free to all, served in the Coach House
  • a bike rodeo for kids
  • a bike check by a professional bike mechanic
  • a chance to try out adaptive bikes
  • see Taylor’s equipment for his cross-country journey
  • a bike ride and more

Keep checking back as we post more summer opportunities for you to experience your body as a gift from God.


Seniors in Motion (SIM)

Meeting every Tuesday and Thursday morning, Seniors in Motion intends to meet the spiritual, social, physical and educational needs of our mature members through exercise and other health and wellness initiatives. SIM participants will also have the added benefit of receiving spiritual nourishment through prayer and faith-based support of other participants.  See our SIM Info Guide for more information on the three different classes offered.
