What to Expect

First Presbyterian Church of Marion has been serving McDowell County, NC for almost 175 years. 

Our worship services are traditional - a combination of both reverence and joy. A typical service includes announcements, worship music using traditional hymns from the ''Glory to God Hymnal", prayer, communion on the 1st Sunday of each month, and preaching the good news of Jesus Christ. We welcome you to to our service, and if we can be of assistance please contact any member of our staff.

New to our Church? What should I wear to worship?

Wear whatever is comfortable for you. Some dress up with the thought that it is out of respect for God, while others dress casually with the thought that God accepts us as we are.
