What We Believe: We welcome and affirm that women and men of all ages, races, ethnicity, and worldly conditions are made one in Christ by the power of the Spirit. We Believe the good news of the gospel and we believe in love of God and Neighbor. You’re welcome to join us as we seek to know God by exploring, questioning and discovering our faith in him.
Our History: Centerville First Presbyterian was the first church to begin meeting in the new City of Centerville about 165 years ago. Worshipers gathered for Sunday school in just the second building built in the town. A few years later in 1851, the church was chartered with twelve members and the first building was completed one block south of the Centerville square. This first building was replaced by two other structures until our current church building was built in 1893! Our building is on the National Register of Historic Places and is a marvelous example of Queen Anne architecture-the only one in the area.
Our Repurposed Closet: We have a room dedicated to repurposed clothing for most ages. Clothing is free and can be acquired by appointment. Call 217-993-1334
