First Presbyterian Church
Church services are held at 10:30 each Sunday morning. First Presbyterian Church is located at 5203 Elmira Street in historic downtown Milton. This Sunday, the first Sunday of Advent, the topic of the sermon will be “A Hope Filled People.” Bible study classes are held in the Fellowship Hall Sunday mornings at 9:30 a.m. There is a nursery for infants and toddlers. All are welcome. If you would like to attend our church but have no transportation you may contact Linda Lade at 623-0017. She will arrange for a church member from your area to transport you. We welcome all visitors and encourage you to attend if you are new in the area or looking for a church family. As our church is an historic building and the oldest church in Santa Rosa County we are in need of refurbishing. To raise the needed funds we are collecting cans and metal. If you wish to donate please contact Betsy Dodson at 983-7803.
