Welcome to First Presbyterian Church of La Crosse, Wisconsin!

candlelight 2“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.


Operation Christmas Child

OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD (OCC) is an opportunity to provide a gifts for children around the world. Each shoebox packed with toys, hygiene items, and school supplies will be given directly to a child in need. With limited resources, these shoeboxes go a long way in providing for the needs of the children that will receive them. See OCC’s website for more info on the journey of an OCC shoebox.
