We offer two worship services. One at 8:55 a.m. in the Fellowship Hall and one at 11:00 a.m. in the Sanctuary. Parking for in person worship is available in multiple areas around the church. Click here for directions and a map of available parking.
Both of our worship services are available via live-stream on Sunday mornings through Vimeo and Youtube. The service can also be viewed in the Online Worship portion of our website. Recordings are archived and are available for viewing on Sunday afternoon.

Reformed theologian John Calvin, from whom much of our theology is derived, said that music is one of the most important parts of worship in the Christian church. Music plays a central role in worship at First Presbyterian of Greer and there are multiple opportunities to worship God through song. From our 3K preschool children to octogenarians, opportunities abound to sing praises, play instruments and make a joyful noise!
Singing each Sunday for the 11:00 worship, the chancel choir provides music that enriches the worship of the congregation. The choir enjoys a wide variety of musical styles, including spirituals, classical composers and traditional and new hymns. New members of all ages are always welcome and encouraged. Rehearsals are on Wednesday nights at 7:30pm. Contact Lisa Dillard with any questions.
The Praise Team plays and sings regularly for the 8:55 worship on Sundays. If you enjoy a variety of musical styles in worship, this is a great place for you! Instrumentalists and singers are always welcome. Contact Wendi Arms.
The Christmas Choir and Summer Choir are designed so that youth and adults can participate as their schedules allow.
Our church proudly owns over 5 octaves of Malmark handbells and handchimes. The church’s commitment to music is evident in the quality sounds that come from our two handbell choirs!
This handbell choir plays intermediate to advanced literature and plays for worship several times a semester, including special worship services. This committed choir attends an annual handbell conference to hone their skills and learn new music. Rehearsals are Wednesday nights at 6:30pm. Contact Lisa Dillard.
Children, youth and adults are welcome to learn the basics of ringing in this beginner-level handbell choir.
Rehearsals are one month on/ one month off on Sundays from 1-2pm. The commitment of the ringers is flexible and on a month-to-month basis. Three or four rehearsals are followed by the opportunity to play in worship.
Youth and adults who have at least 1 year experience are welcome to use their talents for worship. Ours is a musical congregation as we have ensembles for woodwinds, strings and brass! Opportunities for these multi-generational ensembles in worship are approximately twice per year.
Our children love to sing as much as we love to hear them! There is an opportunity for nearly every age group to sing in worship and at special events throughout the year. It is always a highlight in worship when our children take center stage to sing glory to God! Contact Lisa Dillard.
For ages K3 through K5, the Cherub Choir learns of God’s love through singing, movement and a variety of instruments. Rehearsals are in 3-4 week blocks and are combined with Sunday school several times per year. The best part is watching their smiling faces. The second best part is watching the faces of the congregation! Contact Lisa Dillard.
1st-5th graders have fun praising God through a variety of instruments including Orff, handbells and chimes. Grace Notes is incorporated into Sunday School, F3 and Fabulous Friday programming. Children share their musical gifts in worship several times per year. Contact Lisa Dillard.
Weddings are a gift from God, so any wedding performed at our church is to be in the context of a Christian worship service and the guidelines of the PC(USA). The physical facilities of the church are available to church members. When you begin to make your plans, please consult with the office administrator and our wedding guidelines, located at the links below.
Funerals at First Presbyterian Church are always held in the context of a worship service. By offering a witness to the resurrection to the deceased and glorifying God, the funeral is a beautiful example to the grace and love shown through Jesus Christ. Our peaceful Columbarium is the perfect setting for an outside service, and our sanctuary provides all of the elements of a traditional funeral service.
