When you walk in the doors on a Sunday morning, you will be greeted with a warm smile and often a hug. Whether it is your first time at the church or you have been a part of the congregation for years, you are treated the same. As you come into the worship space, you will sense the prayers that have been offered there throughout the years.

If you are looking for a place to be honest about who you are and will be challenged

to grow in your Christian faith, then you will feel warmly welcomed and right at home

with this group of God's people. Our desire together is to follow Jesus

in our relationships with one another and in our daily lives.

First Presbyterian Church has been a part of the Sioux Falls community since 1883. That's nearly 130 years, serving and caring for a growing, thriving, Midwestern town. This church's long history of mission and fellowship dates back to a time when South Dakota was still called the Dakota Territory.
