11am Service Main Sanctuary

6PM Flagler chapel

A Scripture-based sermon is given every week. Traditional liturgy is read on Sunday mornings with call and responses and prayers. Care and/or Kids' Church programs are available at each service   

The 9am service has a traditional church feel. The music is a blend of hymns, soloists, and a choir. 

The 11am service has a contemporary style of worship. Each week is a 'worship-full" experience! A full band with drums, guitars, and singers lead the congregation in beautiful, modern music.   

The 6pm service has an alternative style of worship. Starts on Sunday, January 12, 2020. (Add to calendar.) The music has an edge and is meant to be encompassing as we gather to worship God in an intimate space. 

Our History

1896 - The Reverend Henry Keigwin reaches Ft. Dallas (now Miami) to find a congregation that was net yet incorperated and very small. He begins holding services in a rough board restaurant and organizes the church in April 1896. Services move to a tent and then moved again to a Pavilion which is shared with the Baptists and Methodists.

1898 - Henry M. Flagler, the pioneer builder and developer in Florida, takes a personal interest in the First Presbyterian Church's building site and finances the first church to be built on the corner of Flagler and 3rd Ave.

1900 - The First Presbyterian Chruch building is completed. The church is erected next to the Royal Palm Hotel and the FEC Railroad, which attracts many winter tourists and families.

1914-1925 - William Jennings Bryan teaches a large Sunday School class and is the sole missionary supporter for the Sarah Farris and the Edward Clark families.

1926 - A major hurricane destroys the steeple of the church and it is never replaced.

1947 - There is rapid growth in Miami and the church needs more space. The church decides to move properties from its downtown location to 609 Brickell Ave. This site provides a central location across from the river and next to large neighborhoods.

1949 - The new sanctuary is complete. Flagler Memorial Chapel is built as a replica of the origional church building complete with stained glass, pews, puplit, and fixtures.

1992 - Hurricane Andrew damages the cupola and parts of the sanctuary's interior. Renovations begin to repair the damage.
