Welcome to First Presbyterian Church of LaGrange, Texas. We are glad to introduce you to this lively community of faith in Central Texas. In six words, our ministry ethos is this: compassionate action, modeling faith, building community. We serve the local community through the AMEN Food Pantry, Second Chance Emporium, the LaGrange Area Ministerial Alliance, and a host of volunteer service.

We are a multi-generational congregation with a heart for worship and service, prayer and study, fellowship and care for others. Our children lead us each week as they gather and bless donations for the Food Pantry. We celebrate the Lord’s Supper on the first Sunday of each month; share table fellowship at the Second Sunday Lunch, and worship week to week seeking to “glorify God and to enjoy God forever.”

We seek to build community with family and friends and guests, with the community, with other congregations, and as we pursue an international partnership with a church from the Czech Republic.

To quote one of our members, we are people who have fun doing good things with and for others.

We hope that you will visit so that we may get to know you.

The Rev. Martha Langford, Pastor

    Hear the Sermon Here

    Text:  Matthew 20:1-16
    Sermon: "A Generous Wage"      Rev. Martha LangfordJesus shares a "kingdom of Heaven" parable about a landowner and the day laborers hired for the harvest. When time comes to settle accounts, those hired at first light and those hired an hour before the day ended all receive the same pay. This seems to violate the principle of fairness--and it does--but the landowner claims the right to be generous beyond the transaction of work and wage. Come and wonder with me, "What is fair and what is heavenly?"

    Hear the Sermon Here

    Text:  Romans 14:1-12
    Sermon: "By Comparison"      Rev. Martha Langford
    Paul has poured out his heart to the believers in Rome, seeking to build the church on the solid foundation of Jesus Christ. Yet even as he writes, the church is involved in a dispute over table manners that threatens its peace and unity. Paul warns of comparative judgments on debatable points and urges this fledgling community to practice the open-hearted welcome that they have all received from God.
