With abundant caution and abundant faith, the Session of the First Presbyterian Church of Fairfield voted Wednesday evening to suspend in-person worship services effective November 29 through December 27, 2020.  The Session will monitor the sit...

We will use a combination of Zoom and telephone with study guides sent to participants before each session.

Its consistent focus on practical action in the life of faith is reminiscent of the Wisdom Literature in the Old Testament, encouraging God’s people to act like God&rs...

The Third Option Study

Posted on September 25, 2020 in: Special Event

The Third Option Study

This study is open to all members and friends and there is no charge.  Please email firstpresby@firstpresby.net to sign-up and receive the Participant's Guide and Zoom login instructions.

Pastor's Message on Racism

Posted on June 03, 2020 in: General News

Pastor's Message on Racism
A police officer out of control in Minneapolis . . . senseless killing . . . rioting . . . looting . . . protesting . . . racism. Denouncing all of this is easy. At least it should be. However, it’s not so easy, but just as necessary to search our own lives and confess our own sin and our own racism. As a faith community the First Presbyterian Church of Fairfield stands against the murder of George Floyd and racism in all of its forms. Jesus, in the Sermon on the Mount, tells us, "You have heard that it was said to those of ancient times, 'You shall not mu...

Messiah in the Passover - March 22 CANCELED
Messiah in the Passover Presentation - CANCELED “When the hour came, Jesus and his apostles reclined at the table. And he said to them, "I have eagerly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer. For I tell you, I will not eat it again until it finds fulfillment in the kingdom of God." - Luke 22: 14-16 When most of us are served the Lord’s Supper, it’s not normally a “meal” by any stretch of the imagination. It’s more of a crumb and a sip. So why is it called a meal or supper? It is rooted in the Jewish ob...

Men's Breakfast - June 6
Our Next Meeting - June 6, 2020 | 9:00-10:00 am Join our Zoom Meeting here Very rarely in the Bible does God command someone to “stay.” He opens a door, and then he invites us to walk through it—into the unknown. And how we choose to respond will ultimately determine the lives we will lead and the people we will become. In this six-session video curriculum, bestselling author John Ortberg opens our eyes to the countless open doors God places before us every day, teaches us how to recognize them, and gives us the encouragement to step out ...

Ash Wednesday - Feb. 26

Posted on January 28, 2020 in: Special Event

Ash Wednesday - Feb. 26
The Ash Wednesday service will be held in the chapel on February 26 at 7:30 p.m. The season of Lent is a time of penitence, discipline, and renewal. In the Ash Wednesday service we are reminded of our mortality, we confess our sins, and we experience forgiveness through Christ's death and resurrection. The "imposition of ashes" is a central part of the service. You are invited to come forward to receive the ashes on your forehead. In Scripture, ashes serve both as a symbol of mortality and as a sign of mourning and repentance.

Reading the New Testament in 91 Days
As we begin a New Year we sometimes make resolutions to become better people, eat more healthy, lose weight, etc. Another resolution is to read through the New Testament in 91 days. As a community of faith we would all be reading the same scriptures, and we are doing it in support of the Pastor Nominating Committee. If we began today our reading would be completed on Easter Sunday. My hope and prayer is that as we read through the New Testament we will: • experience a growing love for the Word of God, • grow in our knowledge of and appreciation for the wo...
