We can’t wait to welcome you at FPC! Our worship service starts at 10:30 am. A staffed nursery room can be found through fellowship hall. Children can be dropped off there at the beginning of service or they may stay with their parents through the children’s message and then go back to the nursery.
We love visitors and new members! You’ll meet friendly people as you walk into our beautiful 19th century sanctuary constructed by some of the same craftsmen who built the famous mansions on Bellevue Avenue.
More importantly, you’ll see that Jesus is the true foundation of this congregation that loves and worships God. Come join us in discovering Christ’s love for us as we all grow in our relationship with Him.
Our worship service celebrates the glory of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit through hymns, prayers, music, and Scripture-based teaching. One Sunday a month we also receive communion together.
If you’ve never been to a Presbyterian church, that’s OK! You’ll discover how our worship resonates across centuries, cultures, and churches as we all seek His loving purpose for our modern lives.
*Military families are most welcome!*
At FPC we seek to foster unity among the diversity of people whom the Lord has brought to us (many are from a variety of denominational backgrounds).
Part of the problem lies in the misconception of names. Presbyterian is simply the Greek word for “elder” and means that the church is led by a team called and ordained to shepherd the church (as opposed to one man or the congregation as a whole).
FPC is an ECO Presbyterian Church. ECO, A Covenant Order of Evangelical Presbyterians, is a rapidly-growing Presbyterian denomination that exists to serve the local church and reclaim a sense of covenanted biblical community.
ECO’s Four Priorities:
• Lift up the centrality of the gospel.
• Grow with an emerging generation of leaders.
• Prioritize a wave of church innovation.
• Create an atmosphere of relational accountability.
Parking is available on the streets around the church. Handicapped spaces are available on Everett and Calvert Streets and do not require a formal handicap license.
4 Everett Street, Newport, RI. We are very easy to find. The church faces Broadway Street, a main artery through downtown Newport, and is at the intersection of Everett and Broadway. There’s a Civil War memorial statue of a Union soldier in front of the church, and Equality Park is across the street.
We have a staffed nursery! All caretakers adhere to regulations to make sure your little ones are cared for. Children are always welcome to attend worship service with the family. Normally, about fifteen minutes into the worship service the pastor or lay leader call the children forward for a special “Children’s Message”, after which the children either return to sit with their families or leave the sanctuary to go to the nursery.

Sunday School starts at 9:15 am. During the summer months we are studying Psalms, each week is a standalone lesson, so come when you can. In the fall, we have elementary school, teen and adult classes! To find out more, click here.
