Who We Are
We are a community of believers who seek to live together as brothers and sisters in Christ. We call and think of ourselves as the “Farmington Family.”
- A community of faith
- A community of hope
- A community of love
- A community of witness.
Farmington Presbyterian Church is an inclusive, welcoming, caring community, committed to serving Jesus Christ, who calls us to love God and to love one another. We worship, study and grow in understanding as we work for justice and peace in the world, inspired by the transforming power of the Holy Spirit.
“If you have faith the size of a mustard seed, great things are possible.” -Matthew 17:20
The word Presbyterian comes from the Greek word for elder. Our pastor is a teaching elder, called by the church to teach the faith and equip the church for ministry, witness, and service in the world. In addition, we are governed by ruling elders, who are elected by our congregation. Collectively they comprise the Session, our church’s highest governing body. In one sense they are representatives of the congregation, yet their primary charge is to seek and represent the will of God for the church.
These committees report to Session and include elders, staff members, and volunteers from our congregation. They work together to determine church policies, and to plan, organize, and implement the activities and programs essential to achieving our mission and supporting the life of our church.
