Welcome…a little about us:
First Meridian Heights Presbyterian Church (FMHPC) (U.S.A.) is a spiritually growing family of faith in the heart of the Meridian-Kessler, SoBro and Butler-Tarkington neighborhoods. We strive to be open to all, to respond to the needs within our family and to those around us, reflecting the love of God in Jesus Christ through nurture, social awareness, and service. Here you will find a casual, but caring group. We are a small church, yet we maintain several ministries and small study groups. If you want a church where you will not get lost in the crowd, but instead will feel warmly welcomed – try visiting us Sunday.
Join us for Sunday Services
We’d love to have you join us every Sunday to share in our fellowship. Our services are at 10 a.m. so you still have time to sleep in a bit on Sunday mornings! Both contemporary and traditional songs are led by our Spirit Heart band. Our dress code is casual, so there are no expectations. Coffee and donut holes are served downstairs in the Community Room prior to service.
