new here?

Welcome! Whether you've just moved to Sylva, are just visiting, or have lived here your entire life, we're glad you're here and welcome you to join us in ministry. This page has some basic information about our life together. Scroll down to read more, and give us a call or drop by the church if we can answer any other questions for you.

Sunday Mornings

We gather every Sunday morning for study, prayer, worship, and fellowship. Our Sunday School classes meet at 9:45 a.m. in various locations. Our Worship Service begins at 11:00 a.m. in the church sanctuary, which is on the left as you walk through the church's main entrance. We encourage you to wear what is comfortable for you.

Childcare is available from 10:00-12:00 on Sunday mornings. We have a nursery for ages newborn-2 and a preschool room for ages 2-3. Both are located down the hallway to the left of the Fellowship Hall.

Midweek Activities

We also have various midweek activities throughout the year, such as Soaking Prayer on Tuesday nights, Pilates on Wednesdays and Fridays, and Family Night Supper on the first Wednesdays of the month. Take a look at our church calendar for a full schedule of events.

What's a Presbyterian?

Presbyterians are Christians. We share faith with all who acknowledge Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.  To be Presbyterian is simply to be committed to a particular way of living out that faith in community.  The word "Presbyterian" means elder, so we are a congregation governed by elders in connection with other similar churches.
