When people visit churches they consider many things—teaching, music, age groups, children's and youth ministries, opportunities to serve. What you might be looking for may be dramatically different from the person next to you—or it could be exactly the same. 


At First Presbyterian Church of Mount Holly, one thing remains consistent: we strive to be the kind of church God intended—a community of believers called to honor God by making more disciples for Jesus Christ.  

Our congregation spans many generations, and people at every stage of faith. We welcome those seeking God and his truths, regardless of their questions, their baggage or their experiences. Whatever you're looking for, you mean something to God, and therefore, you mean something to us. You're always welcome here. 


Be Part of The Return

2020 has been a dreadful year, in the truest sense of that word—the pandemic, loss of life, economic hardships, wildfires, hurricanes, racial injustice, demonstrations, violence in the streets. We can do our best to deal with all the turmoil, but we know full well that these events are not in our control. This is a reminder that only prayer can change our situation! Never have we needed to be on our knees before the throne of God more than in this hour!

Many Christians around America and the world are joining for the National and Global Day of Prayer and Repentance on September 26. Activities are planned for large gatherings and personal prayer for forty days! The Prayer Team at FPC is planning to join by holding a prayer gathering (as we did a few months ago) on the front lawn of the church.

Forty is a significant number in the scriptures. Noah sailed through 40 days and nights of rain; the Israelites wandered for 40 years in the wilderness; Jonah warned the people of Ninevah that they would be overthrown in 40 days. Using that significant number, thousands of Christians are praying for 40 days before the election for national and personal repentance, a turning from evil, a return to God, spiritual revival, and restoration. This is not a political movement—it is a Holy Spirit movement, a call for a return to God and his purposes.

On Saturday, September 26th, we will gather from 1:00 to 2:00, (with our masks and chairs on the front lawn) to be led in a service of prayer for humility, repentance, hope in this time of natural disasters, sickness and despair, the salvation of many, and transformation of our nation and world. This is a call to take action now to restore Gods presence in our homes, communities, and government, and to stand for justice and righteousness. 

You are invited to take part in this important activity—join FPCs Prayer Team on that day. God—and only God—can turn our hearts and our nation in a new direction, one that honors Him and brings Him glory!
