Welcome to the First Presbyterian Church of Champaign's Website. We are disciples of Jesus Christ, who worship our God, share love and friendship with one another, and are passionate about making a difference in our community and beyond. We believe that a church exists for ministry and mission as a fire exists for burning. Our Sunday morning worship times are 8 am and 9 am for Traditional Worship. The Gathering, our contemporary worship experience, meets at 10:30 am Sunday mornings.
Jesus answered, “Time’s up. The time has come for the Son of Man to be glorified.
Jesus talked a lot about love during his last days on earth. Not the way we often talk about it, though. He ties it to his upcoming sacrificial death. “Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another” (John13:34).
I think it’s time for me to reflect on my experience at FPCC.

Several years ago I was attending a youth conference and they showed one of those hip and cool videos.
Come to Lifetree Café on a Monday evening at 7p this March for an hour of coffee and conversation to feed your soul.
As you are probably are aware by now I’m about to leave the church for a while to have my second baby. This is obviously an exciting time for my family. We did not expect to have a second child so we truly feel we are blessed with a miracle.

Lent is a 40-day period of preparation for the joy of Easter when we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus rising from the dead. The word “Lent” comes from an Anglo-Saxon word meaning “lengthening,” since the days are growing longer. The 40 days recall the 40 days of testing that Jesus undergoes in the wilderness at the hands of Satan. Traditionally observing Lent means fasting, confession, and focusing on prayer, the reading of Scripture, and the making of spiritual resolutions.
