About Us

We welcome you to our website and to First Presbyterian Church of Kernersville. It is our hope that by visiting our website you will have a much better understanding of who we are and what we do as a congregation.

We are a congregation that seeks to make a difference in our local community. Each year we work with the local schools to provide needy families a Christmas they would have never been able to have.  Since 1991, we have made and sold chocolate covered Easter Eggs to benefit the organizations and ministries of Kernersville that make this town such a great place to live.

Some of the proceeds from the sale of our eggs benefit an organization that helps families with rent, utilities, food and medication. Egg money is also donated to a local shelter for abused women and their families. Proceeds also provide new car seats for families unable to afford them and scholarships for a children’s police camp, new children’s books for our local library and needed funds for our local schools.

As you peruse the website further, you might also notice that we offer a midweek program for preschool and elementary age children. There is also an active youth program, Sunday School classes for all ages and an intergenerational mission trip planned each year. Our “Presbyterian Gad Abouts” (PGAs) is our vibrant senior adult group that meets almost every month and has a lot of fun.

These are just some of the activities and opportunities available here. We invite you to not only look through our website, but to get involved in some of our activities and ministries.

Thank you for taking the time to read our welcome and look through our website. We invite you to come and participate in ministry with us!
