About Us

Grace, mercy, and peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord. (1 Tim 1:2)

First Presbyterian Church, Delavan, is a PC(USA) congregation, serving Christ and making God’s love known to all people, particularly those in central Illinois.  We have been worshiping, studying, serving, proclaiming, and enjoying sacred friendship with God, with one another, and with all our neighbors for more than 150 years.

We remember our past, honor it, and draw strength and wisdom from our heritage.  We have committed ourselves to lives of faithful discipleship here and now, loving and serving one another and all our neighbors.  We are awestruck that, through us, God is revealing the reality and the presence of God’s kingdom.  We look toward the future with hope and faith, cherishing our sacred responsibility to future generations.  We are committed to pressing toward the goal for which Christ claims us.
