Community Outreach

Theology on Tap

Theology on Tap takes place the first Tuesday of every month at 6:00 PM at downtown's Oil Horse Brewery. First Presbyterian Church is one of the founding hosts and partners with the Oil Horse Brewing team, local Presbyterian, Baptist, Episcopalian, Christian, Methodist and nondenominational churches as well as speakers with deep interest in and expertise of various topics. The discussions are honest, heartfelt, often lively and always open eyes and hearts. 


During each Theology on Tap gathering, local pastors lead a researched and balanced panel discussion on timely topics and issues through the lens of Christianity. With the motto that "we can disagree without being disagreeable," Theology on Tap is a safe place for Christians to hear the perspectives of local ministry leaders and to have small group discussions on topics that may otherwise be uncomfortable. 

300 Hours of Service 

One Saturday each fall, First Presbyterian partners with local Presbyterian churches with the goal of attaining 300+ hours of volunteer service! Volunteers gather at First Pres and disperse to sites as Longview Community Ministries, the Longview Animal Care and Adoption Center, Camp Gilmont, Heartisans Marketplace, D.O.R.S. Youth Transition Center and more.
