About Us

First Presbyterian Church Willoughby Ohio is a community of faith that celebrates diverse opinions, warm Christian love and the opportunity to serve others. Pastor Shane Nanney and the congregation invite you to join us for worship, christian education, mission and fellowship.

The beautiful sanctuary is accessible and comfortable. Children are always welcome in the sanctuary, and the narthex in the back of the sanctuary is also available for parents who wish to participate in worship with their youngsters but are more comfortable on the other side of a closed door. Infant and toddler care is also available during both worship services as well as duringĀ christian education classes.

Our church takes part in outreach through partnership with local, regional, national and global neighbors such as the Willoughby Food Pantry, Lake County Community Network, North Presbyterian Church and Heifer Project. We support One Great Hour of Sharing and take part in various ministries for hunger alleviation and peacemaking.

First Presbyterian has been an integral part of the Willoughby community since 1833. Members also live in the adjacent Lake County communities of Mentor, Eastlake, Willoughby Hills, Kirtland, Wickliffe, Willowick and Concord. The church is a member church of the Presbytery of the Western Reserve, Synod of the Covenant, and the Presbyterian Church (USA).
