The Five Points of Life Marathon race will be held this Sunday February 26.  The race route can make it a little bit of a challenge to get to the parking lot.  Please plan a little extra time to get to the church.

Free parking is available in our big lot, in the grass lot just to the east of the big lot, and behind the Salon Syx building to the west of our lot. 

On Sunday, February 5 and 12 there will be 2 orientation classes for new and prospective members at 9:40 a.m. in Iona Chapel. The class will be led by our pastor, Rev. Dr. Robert Shettler. Come learn more about what it means to be a Christian, a Presbyterian, and a member of First Presbyterian Church, Gainesville. For more information, please contact Carol at assistant@1stpc.org.
