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 are a community of faith that strives to live it out through our service, programs, and events that are open to the entire community. Wherever you find yourself on life’s journey, First Pres has something for you!

Happy New Year!

We are so grateful for all of the generous members and friends that supported the ministries of First Presbyterian Church throughout 2018! We’re very excited for both familiar and new ways that the Lord will use our church in 2019 to advance God’s Kingdom in La Crosse & beyond!

Worship Focus for Spring 2019: Ezra & Nehemiah

Have you ever wondered what God may be asking of you? Have you recently pondered what plan God has for your life?

You’re not alone! Join us on Sundays this spring as we explore the Old Testament scripture of Ezra and Nehemiah, Israelite leaders whom the Lord called to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem following its destruction and the mass-exile of its people.

Operation Christmas Child 2018

We are excited to report that our Drop-off Center received more shoe-boxes this year than ever before! We collected over 3,000 shoe-boxes, which have now been shipped to Minneapolis for processing, the last step before being delivered to a child in need. Visit samaritanpurse.org to see the entire “Journey of a Shoe-box.” We invite you to join us in praying for the shoe-boxes and the children that will receive them!

We are grateful to partner with the many churches, business, and media outlets that collected shoe-boxes and/or helped spread the word regarding this wonderful cause! A special thanks to every single person that packed a shoe-box, donated items, and/or inquired about Operation Christmas Child. Because of your support, our region has sent gifts to more children than ever before!
