Church Life


The Students We Serve

First students are men and women who grew up at First Presbyterian Church and are now attending university somewhere. We are committed to loving and serving these men and women as they navigate the college world and pursue the Lord wherever they find themselves.

Local students are those attending schools in the Jackson Metro area. We hope that First Pres can serve them well during their time in Jackson, whether that is for four years or more!

Millsaps students attend college across the street from First Pres, and we strive to be a presence on campus through the ministry of First-Pres operated Millsaps Christian Fellowship.

Why Do We Care About College Students?

“For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.’ How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching?” 
Romans 10:13-14

Here at First Presbyterian Church, we are motivated by passages like this one to bring the Gospel of Jesus to all peoples and all ages. College students need to hear about their sin, and they need to hear about the God who does something about their sin. We are committed to serving each and every one of them.

Are you a college student interested in getting plugged into the life of First Presbyterian Church? We would love to have you!
