Pastor Kevin's message



 

Welcome to The First Presbyterian Church in Springfield!
 
We are a welcoming congregation that seeks to cultivate disciples of Jesus Christ in a community of learning, healing and sharing. Located in the heart of Flourtown, at the intersection of Bethlehem Pike and East Mill Road, we are rich in history and we are boldly forging our future for which we know God is preparing us. Our congregation believes in the importance of family; commitment to our neighborhood and world through mission; and nurturing  spiritual values through our ministries of worship, education, and fellowship.

Don't forget the Sharing Cupboard! Canned and packaged food items are desperately needed each week.
