History

Over one hundred seventy years ago, four men and nine women shared their love for God and formed a common vision. Together, they organized The First Presbyterian Church in Fulton, Missouri and began to live the mission they envisioned.  The generations that would follow benefited from that group’s efforts.  And in the spirit of that small group, each successive generation added their own vision to the mission of The First Presbyterian Church.  They added a sanctuary for worship, a college to educate young people, an addition for Christian education and fellowship, a retirement home to minister to the needs of older adults and supported countless ministries locally and around the world.  They helped create and support organizations like Ecumenical Ministries and Serve to meet the needs of our community.  Each generation built upon the legacy, enhancing the corporate mission of the church.
