Welcome to First Presbyterian Church of Michigan City!
121 W Ninth St., Michigan City, IN 46360
Why are the Paraments a different color? A Parament refers to the liturgical hangings on and around the Communion Table, pulpit and lectern. The liturgical colors aid in establishing a climate in which Law and Gospel may be heard and received.
Green paraments are traditional during what is called Ordinary Time, the seasons from Epiphany to Lent and from Pentecost to Advent.
Green symbolizes a time of growth in the Christian faith as the church studies and strives to practice the teachings of Jesus.
Congregational Meeting & Carry-In-Luncheon
Session has approved Sunday, January 25, 2015 as the date for our Annual Congregational Meeting. As required in the Book of Order we come together as a congregation to vote on annual church business. The meeting will begin immediately following worship, so plan on staying. We need you to meet quorum requirements and be a part of the decision making process and an informed Presbyterian. As a reward for your due diligence there will be a pot luck carry-in immediately upon the conclusion of the meeting. Session will provide fried chicken, beverages, and dinnerware. Members are asked to bring their favorite dish or dessert. The outgoing Elder Class of 2014 will serve and all Session members will help with clean-up.

Missional Transformation: Discovering God's Dream
The Church has a divine calling, and its life and purpose are not its own.
The church exists to discern and participate in God’s mission.
That is why we have embarked on this journey with other churches in the Presbytery of Wabash Valley. For more information and to learn our timeline for this journey, please click here.
Shirley Ryan, church historian, has been working on a new exhibit in the Heritage Room, on the west side of the narthex. This exhibit highlights the various places we have held worship services during construction, renovation, and fire repair. Also, showcased are the many and various Women’s Association activities over the years. Stop in before or after worship or any other time to enjoy our rich heritage.
