First Presbyterian is an active church that helps individuals and families grow in the grace and love of Jesus Christ.
We offer a variety of programs for individuals and families and are large enough to offer an array of activities and ministries, but small enough to know each of our members personally. We would love for you to call our church "home."
This website only covers selected highlights so we encourage you to contact the church office at 304 727-2241, stop by, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions or particular areas of interest. Our main message to you is...WELCOME!

FUEL FOR THE FIGHT
On November 19th 170 Fuel for The Fight bags were delivered to healthcare workers at Thomas Memorial Hospital ICU unit, Emergency Room, and Respiratory Therapy. It is one way we can show them we care and appreciate their efforts in fighting COVID 19. They especially appreciated the hand written notes. Our thanks to Donna Merguc for spear-heading our efforts and to Kathy Weed for organizing the hospital staff upon our arrival.

Welcome, Rev. Mark Boyd
First Presbyterian Church is pleased to announce and welcome the Rev. Mark Boyd as the church’s pastor. Rev. Boyd was elected by the congregation on December 13, 2020, began his service on January 1, 2021 and was installed on April 18th. An outdoor reception was held following the installation service. Rev. Boyd invited colleagues from other denominations to participate in worship of his installation service, which is a representation of the whole Church of Christ on earth. Rev. Boyd’s guests came from the Roman Catholic Church, the Disciples of Christ Church, the Evangelical Lutheran Church, the American Baptist Church, and the Mennonite Church USA. Rev. Boyd’s mentor from seminary, and current boss at St. Mary’s Medical Center, preached for us, and Rev. Boyd’s colleagues from his CPE cohort participated in worship, alongside members of the WV Presbytery.
Rev. Boyd was born and raised in Barboursville, West Virginia, graduated from Barboursville High School and Marshall University. He received his Master of Divinity from Palmer Theological Seminary in 2008. In addition to serving First Presbyterian Church, he is currently enrolled in the CPE Residency Program at St. Mary’s Medical Center in Huntington. Rev. Boyd has over twenty years of pastoral experience, serving churches in West Virginia and Pennsylvania.
Rev. Boyd is currently residing in Milton, WV with his wife Jamie and three of their four children. Their oldest daughter lives in Florida with her husband, while their son and two daughters are living at home attending school.
First Presbyterian’s Sunday worship service is at 10:00 am in person at 201 Kanawha Terrace, St. Albans and live streamed on Facebook. Please join us for worship, meet Rev.
