Welcome

church members coming into the sanctuary for service

First Presbyterian Church of Green Bay is committed to vibrant, traditional worship. We worship God together in several ways: with hymns accompanied by organ and piano, anthems from the choir and/or special music, the reading of the scriptures, the preaching of the Word, the inclusion of children, the celebration of the Sacraments, and the practice of stewardship.

We view worship as a spiritual practice. One of the strengths of the Presbyterian Church and our faith community is that we do not have to be the same, feel the same, or believe the same. Diversity is a gift to be celebrated. We strive to have all voices included from a variety of perspectives so we can grow and learn together. And so, no matter where you are on your spiritual journey, you are welcome!

Children of all ages are welcome in our worship service. A special “Time with the Children” is included after the Passing of the Peace, when children (and sometimes their parents, too) are invited to sit on the steps with the Pastor or CE Director for a brief conversation directed especially to them. After the message, the children in kindergarten through fifth grade are excused to Sunday School.

We hope you feel welcome to join us on Sunday morning at 10:00 a.m. for an uplifting and inspiring time of traditional worship.

Frequently Asked Questions About Worshiping In-person

Baptism is sign of God’s amazing grace; a sign and a seal of our becoming part of the Body of Christ, the Church. In the Presbyterian Church we “sprinkle” water on a person’s head from water poured into a baptismal font, as opposed to some traditions that “immerse” people in a pool of water head to toe. Through the practice of infant baptism, we welcome the children of believers into the household of God, just as the early church did. Adult baptism is also available.

Sunday School

Yes, we provide a church school during Worship from September to May, for Pre-Kindergarten through Fifth Grade. We teach Bible stories, age-appropriate learning activities, and challenge our children to put their faith into action and grow in their self-understanding as Christians.

Our well-equipped and staffed nursery/childcare room is located in room 205 for infants through preschool children. It is open from 9:30am to 11:00am each Sunday. Parents are asked to leave their cell number.  This allows them to be discreetly reached if necessary.  An usher would be happy to show you to the nursery. 

Sunday School is held during worship September-May.  Children are encouraged to sit with their parents for the first part of the worship service and then are invited forward for a special message in our “Time With the Children.”  Those in K through Grade 5 are then dismissed for Sunday School.  Children of visitors are always welcome.  For children who stay with their parents, especially at other times of the year, our ushers can provide a worship bag filled with coloring sheets and crayons to keep them occupied.

Yes, Pastor Katie would love to meet you!  She is available after the Worship Service. If you would like a more in-depth visit with the Pastor, please call the Church Office at 920-437-8121 to set up a time for a personal visit or phone call.
