First Presbyterian Church of Delray Beach is a member of the Presbyterian Church (USA). We offer compelling, traditional worship services with outstanding music and exceptional thought-provoking sermons with the purpose of Building Disciples, Transforming Lives.
We are located on the barrier island in downtown Delray Beach. Our church campus is just 1/2 block south of Atlantic Avenue on Gleason Street. We have ample parking both across the street from the Sanctuary doors or on the church campus. Our physical address is 33 Gleason Street Delray Beach, Florida 33483.
Our worship service times are dependent upon the time of the year. For the summer months (May through October), we have one service at 10 a.m. In "season", (November through April), we have two worship services (9 a.m. and 11 a.m.).
Our programing for children is offered in the Center for Christian Studies. This two-story building is situated on the Northeast corner of the church campus and connected to the Sanctuary worship space by our Courtyard.
Nursery care, for children birth to three-years old, is offered from 30 minutes before a worship service to 30 minutes after it concludes. Our Nursery is on the first floor of the Center for Christian Studies.
Sunday School classes for children (Bible Bunch for ages 3 to Kindergarten, Primary Sunday School for children 1st through 4th grade, and Secondary Sunday School for children 5th grade and up) are located in the Center for Christian Studies. The children depart the Sanctuary worship service following the Time with the Children during the 10 a.m. service. Parents can then pick up their kids directly from the appropriate classroom.
We serve communion thirteen times a year; the first Sunday of every month and at the Maundy Thursday worship service. We serve gluten-free bread and non-alcoholic juice.
Our worship service bulletins are printed with everything you will need to participate in the service. The words for the week's Scriptures as well as the words to the songs sung in worship are published in a large, easy-to-read font.
For those with hearing difficulties, we offer hearing devices. Stop by the audio/visual booth located in the southeast corner of the Sanctuary worship space to pick up a device.
We receive new members either in-person or virtually. You can let a pastor know of your interest or you may complete the Connect with First Presbyterian card available in the pews or in the lobby, or complete the I Want to Connect Form on the website. A member of the church staff will be in contact with you to answer any questions you might have.
