Welcome to FPCLY

Here at First Presbyterian Church of Lynchburg, we aspire to be a church that worships, loves, serves, and grows as a community!  We hope that you will join us one weekend as we gather to worship God and grow together! We understand that visiting somewhere new can be scary, you have nothing to be afraid of here. Our hope is that from the moment you walk through the doors you feel the love of Christ and receive a warm welcome!



Join us on Sundays!
9am, in the front parking lot
10:30am, in the Sanctuary, via livestream, or on the radio

Spiritual Growth Opportunities abound for people of all ages to learn and grow in their faiths here at FPCLY!  This summer, we have limited programming available as we move out of the pandemic.

We will be kicking off a 4-week summer class for middle schoolers through adults called "What is Church Outreach?" Alex Collier, a former Young Adult Volunteer with experience in Community Development, will be leading this conversational class on church outreach!

We will kick off a 4 week class called "What is Church Outreach?" on Sunday, July 11! Come in person to the Chapel at 9:30am or attend via Zoom.  More details can be found on the link below!

Our fall Spiritual Growth Kickoff will be Sunday, September 12th… stay tuned for more info.

Here at FPCLY, there are opportunities to learn and grow for every one of every age and every stage of faith.  We invite you to check out our Spiritual Growth pages to learn more about how you can get involved.


Our outdoor, parking lot service at 9am is held on the driveway of 1215 VES Road.  You are invited to bring a chair or blanket (or remain in your car with the air conditioner on) and join us in the outdoors for a service of prayer, scripture, and the Word.  We often have a musical offering from church members or local musicians!  Nursery is available for children under three starting at 8:45am!

Our traditional worship service at 10:30am is held in our beautiful sanctuary each Sunday and are open to all.  Each service has a moment for young children to come to the front for a short message. This summer, children will be invited to remain in worship after the children's moment.  Nursery care providers are available for children under three starting at 8:45am! We do have virtual opportunities to worship via livestream and the radio if you would like to visit from afar first!


All children are welcome at FPC… no ifs, ands, or buts about it!

Nursery is available from 8:45am to 12pm! The nursery is available for children 3 and under.  The nursery is located on the Ground Floor and is best accessed from our rear entrance.  At all times, we have at least 2 nursery care providers who are certified in CPR and First Aid.  We have a safe check in process and request you bring your own diapers, wipes, snacks, and let us know if your child has any allergies or health concerns our nursery team needs to be aware of!

We invite children to join worship in the Sanctuary and have a special moment for children during the service.  We have created Spiritual Growth Worship Carts, which can be found in the Narthex just before you enter the Sanctuary, filled with book, tools to help memorization, puzzles, and other educational items for children to grab and engage in during Worship!

During the school year, we offer two classroom education opportunities for children during the second part of worship called Gateways to Worship and Worship Workshop to help children learn about worship elements, become familiar with Bible stories and people, and develop spiritually in an engaging, age-appropriate way. All children are brought back to the Narthex following Worship.


Parking spaces are located in the front and back of the building.  We have handicapped spaces in the front circle (close to the church entrance) and in the front parking lot for easier access to the Sanctuary. 

The back parking lot may be most convenient for families with children in the Nursery as the Nursery entrance is in the back of the building.  Our care providers or an usher will be able to assist you in walking through the building to get to the Sanctuary!
