“Absolutely stunning workmanship!”

First Presbyterian Church
Reviewed 28 January 2015

Read up on how this church was built before visiting, and you will have even more of an appreciation when you arrive. Ask for the organist to do a demonstration, it is phenomenal. The folks at this church could not have been more helpful to me, as I was visiting with a high school choir. They literally helped me build my itinerary with the downtown churches and organs. I cannot say enough about their beautiful historic building and their staff!

Between the extensive, lovely gardens out front of this 160 year old historic church and the extensive woodwork throughout the pews, railings to include floor to ceiling- you can't help but be amazed at how good the acoustics are for the fine musicians to sing within. A grand place to worship to hear the spiritual words from the pastors, their choir, and a warm, inviting place to worship in. They even have a children's ministry with a great Sunday school program as well.

The cherrywood pews, railings and other woodwork make this church a real masterpiece among Portland churches. The acoustics are good, the musicians are good, and it is a beautiful place to worship.

I was visiting a friend who attends First Presbyterian. She invited me to church with her on Sunday and it was a real treat. The woodwork inside is gorgeous-- a dramatic display of Oregon's industry and resource at work. The acoustics were fantastic and the place warm and inviting. Check it out if you stumble upon it.

First Presbyterian Church of Portland's interior was built from Oregon's greatest gift: lumber. A handcrafted piece of carpenter's art, this historic building has been the center for ministry to Portland, Oregon and out into the world. It is a beautiful site for a wedding, but a visit any time is a pleasure. Even better on Sunday to experience the gathered community and the outstanding music. A look around will let you see not only a grand old church building, but a place alive with creative work and service.
