We are linked to each other by stories. Our own sacred narratives, together with the great Biblical stories, are woven into the fabric of our faith. At First Presbyterian Church of Springfield, Illinois, we believe in the big umbrella of grace, and we welcome all who wish to join us in an inclusive community of faith.
