First Presbyterian Church of Athens, Ohio

Our red doors 

mean that 


is welcome here 

Historically, red doors have been a symbol of welcome, hospitality, and protection across many cultures.

At FPC, we take that to heart.

Here you will find a diverse and open-hearted community of people, united by a curiosity to explore and practice what it means to be a Christian today.


Sunday services start at 10:30 am in the Sanctuary, and are also livestreamed on our YouTube channel. Refreshments in the Fellowship Hall follow immediately afterward.
