Our Church: First Presbyterian Church of Hollywood Florida
We are a diverse and dynamic Christian church in Hollywood FL. Founded in the early years of the City of Hollywood, First Presbyterian Church of Hollywood has been working to serve South Florida families for over 85 years by connecting with people, valuing their friendship and spreading the good news of God’s love. To us, being Christian means accepting people for who they are, building friendship and community, growing in our spirituality and faith, and letting the love of God spread hope and transform us, our city and our world. We live this vision by caring for the children in our Learning Centers and Sunday School (Good News Kidz), by supporting our HIV-positive orphanage in Haiti with our partner Temple Beth-El, hosting fun events to enhance family togetherness, hold meaningful and enlightening worship gatherings and partnering with our local elementary school to reach at-risk kids. At our church, we welcome church members, preschool families, winter “snowbirds, visitors, and seekers (even the curious and the skeptical!). At First Presbyterian, we are a fully inclusive community. Come check us out!
We are a diverse, multi-generational family of faith
Within our congregation, we have members from many nations and walks of life, of every race and color, and background. We celebrate that wondrous diversity with such events as our multi-cultural food fair and our annual Souper Bowl Sunday event (a soup-making competition – it’s delicious!). On Sunday morning you will see young families sitting next to senior citizens, and sharing together in the worship experience. You will see parents whose children have moved out of the nest giving back by serving the children of our church family in our Good News Kidz ministry. At First Presbyterian, your children will have an opportunity not only to build relationships with peers, but with adults of every age and background. They will truly be part of a wonderful, loving, diverse family of faith.
What our Church has to offer
In addition to Sunday morning church services (every Sunday at 10:00 AM), we have a weekly bible study “Breakfast & the Bible” on Sunday morning at 9:00 AM (yes, we provide bagels for breakfast), we offer various other small group experiences focused on sharing and studying scripture. We also provide many opportunities for serving others such as feeding the hungry in Hollywood, or even taking a group trip to visit our orphanage in Haiti. There are also many opportunities to enjoy and participate in church-related activities on our campus such as Easter Brunch and Egg Hunt, Fall Festival, Christmas Village, Women’s High Tea, Kirkin of the Tartans (a Scottish heritage event, complete with bagpipes and drums). Musicians can serve in our choir and bakers can make something yummy for our back sales.
