Soli Deo Gloria
"To God Alone Be the Glory" is the church's motto. It is placed on the front of the Pipe Organ Case at the center of the Chancel. It is a reminder of who we have been, who we are, and who we hope to become. We exist to glorify God through learning experiences and through our service to God and our neighbor.
The First Church in the Valley...established March 6, 1838
Welcome and Greetings to you from a good neighbor...
First Presbyterian Church is a caring, tolerant congregation of people who praise God with grateful hearts and inquiring minds.
In the early 1800's Saginaw was a wilderness outpost in the Northwest Territory. In 1838, just a year after Michigan became a state, Saginaw First Presbyterian was established as a flower in that wilderness and the first church in the Saginaw Valley. For nearly 175 years First Church has supported the people and community of Saginaw with good preaching, excellent music, and sound application of the gospel of Jesus Christ to support the needs of people. If you are new to Saginaw we welcome you and invite you to come visit us. And we say the same to long time residents who have never been inside our doors. We invite you to stop by and visit us during Sunday Worship at 10:30 am followed by Coffee Hour at 11:30 am or during the week when our office is open. Office hours are Monday - Thursday from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm and Friday from 9:00 am to 12:00 noon.
