Whatever your worship tradition has been, or even if you have never been to church before, you are welcome here. As our vision states, we strive to provide a safe spiritual home.

The beauty of this area and the style of our sanctuary makes weddings at First Presbyterian Church very popular. As a community church, we are here to assist those who desire celebrating Christian marriage in the context of a worship service. For Christians, marriage is a covenant, rooted in Scripture, through which a man and a woman are called to live out together before God their lives of discipleship.
The sanctuary and fellowship hall are able to facilitate weddings and receptions both large and small. Because of the popularity of this church and in the interest of stewardship of time, resources and the integrity of worship, we encourage you to carefully read our wedding policy and contact us as soon as possible to discuss the possibility of holding your wedding here.

The witness to the resurrection from the dead is the central doctrine of the Christian faith and as such is the most important witness the First Presbyterian Church of Whitefish ever makes. That witness is nowhere more apparent than in the Christian funeral or memorial service where in the face of death we affirm the resurrection to eternal life through Jesus Christ. Should your family have a need for a funeral or memorial service please feel free to contact our pastor. He is here to help and provide comfort in your loss.
