About Us

Welcome to First Presbyterian Church in Williamsburg, Iowa

First Presbyterian Church welcomes all who enter its doors to join in worship and sacraments, whether you are a visitor, a newcomer looking for a church home, long time members, or someone looking for a place to rest for the moment.  All are invited to join fellow worshipers in their Christian journey, no matter where they are in that journey.

We worship as a community of faith, every Sunday morning.  There are Sunday school classes for Pre-school students through adults from 9-9:45 am (September through April), and our worship begins at 10 am.  Following worship, we have Coffee Fellowship, as a time for snacks, the kids to run around, and to simply catch up with each other in the midst of busy lives.

Wear what you feel comfortable in.  We have bow ties, jeans, & sparkly dresses on a weekly basis.  We simply celebrate that you are here in our midst to worship God with us.


Mission Statement

Inspiring & nurturing our church & neighbors through Christ. 


FPC’s History

In 1856, the Welsh Congregational Church was organized with 13 members in Williamsburg, Iowa.  Across town, in 1857, the American Congregational Church was organized.  In 1882, the American Congregational Church received financial aid from the Presbyterian Church, and became a Presbyterian Congregation.   In 1957, a hundred years after the two, separate, congregations began, the two churches merged and became First Presbyterian Church.

No matter what building we’ve been in, or what denomination we’ve been affiliated with, our church has a rich history of serving this community, of growing in faith together, and of nurturing folks of all ages & stages of faith.
