Sunday Services

Come and worship with us!

First Presbyterian provides an opportunity for traditional worship in our historic sanctuary. We follow the reformed model for liturgy (the order of worship), prayer, Scripture, preached word, music (led by organ and choir) and congregational response. In our worship, we seek to magnify the glory of God and proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ in ways that challenge the mind, nourish the spirit, honor tradition, demonstrate liturgical depth, exercise creativity through music and the arts, and address the needs of individuals and communities today.

Join us from home or far away

First Presbyterian provides an opportunity for online worship through live stream and recorded services on our App, Facebook, Youtube, and website. Please like and comment on our videos to let us know you are watching!

What to Expect

When: 10:00 a.m. worship service in the main sanctuary.

Where: The front door to the main sanctuary can be found just opposite the Clarksville Downtown Commons at the corner of 3rd and Main streets.


Children: Nursery is available from 9:45 a.m. until the end of 10:00 worship and sometimes later to accommodate "The Trek" Discussion Group. All children ages 4 through Elementary are invited to Sunday School during worship. Children are dismissed for Sunday School following the Children's Moment and return to the sanctuary after the sermon.

Adults: Brotherhood and Friendship classes at 9:00 a.m. on the 3rd floor and "The Trek" Young Adult Discussion Group after worship around 11:15 in Fellowship Hall.

First Presbyterian Church's music is varied within a traditional framework. Instrumental and vocal solos contribute to the atmosphere of worship. Choir and bell choir is available for youth and adults. 
We remember the Lord’s Supper on the first Sunday of each month. By receiving communion, we are renewed and empowered to be the church--the body of Christ--in the world.
