With Christ as our Savior and Guide, we seek to know God's love and share it with each other, our community and the world. We invite you to join us in this journey of discipleship!

We welcome visitors to join us for weekly service. Service is held each Sunday morning at 10:00 am. Sunday School classes meet at 9:00 am.

Who We Are
Clarksville, Tennessee was incorporated in 1784. Dr. Gideon Blackburn, an itinerant Presbyterian minister, preached outdoors in a place south of Clarksville called Tompkins Grove. He organized First Presbyterian Church on May 25, 1822.

Today we have over 500 members worshiping God. We are part of the Presbyterian Church USA (PCUSA). Here is a general guide to facts about the Presbyterian Church USA.

You can learn more about upcoming events by subscribing to our weekly Forget-Me-Nots. Contact Anita Randolph at for more information.

Planning Day 2020, January 25
On Saturday, January 25 all of the committees and teams of the church will gather from 9:00am—noon (with lunch at 11:30am) to plan the church’s activities for 2020. This is a wonderful oppor-tunity to check out an area of church life about which you have been curious, but into which you haven’t yet dipped your toe in the water to try. Please consider joining one of the committees on this day to “observe” as members evaluate the past year and begin to plan the ministries and events that will take place at First Presby-terian Church during the coming year. Our church is very blessed to have such strong volunteer leadership in every facet of our life together.
