Sacraments & Special Services
At First Presbyterian Church of Goldsboro, we believe in the sacrament of baptism as a sign of God's love and grace. We welcome all who seek to be baptized, whether as infants, children or adults. The sacrament of baptism celebrates the covenant God has made with us, our individual commitment to that covenant, and the support and role the Family of Faith plays in our spiritual journey.
The Lord's Supper
The Sacrament of the Lord's Supper, commonly called Communion, celebrates the real presence of God in the life of the Church. At First Presbyterian Church of Goldsboro, we offer Communion (the Lord's Supper) the First Sunday of each month, at our Maundy Thursday service, and at our traditional Christmas Eve service. We hope you will join us for this sacred celebration.
