About Us

What people are saying...

Friendly, loving, and truly cares for all people, not just "members". This church has helped me understand the Bible teachings with such clarity and purpose. There is no need to put on a "face" when you come here, you don't need to feel or be in an "acceptable" state. I have felt and been welcomed and loved no matter if I am in joy or suffering. If you are looking for a church home where you can come with your burdens, doubts, or questions and not be dismissed, this is the home for you!

FLPC is a church grounded in love, scripture, and service. We were welcomed and made to feel part of the church immediately! Our first visit was on a Palm Sunday, and my children were included in the service. Opportunities for fellowship and service abound, for both adults and children. Our pastors are some of the best teachers around, making worship truly meaningful. Come visit us and see for yourself:)

This is an authentic congregation with a passion for Christian service and learning. Sermons are compelling, informative and interesting. There are always multiple and varied educational and service offerings for those interested in learning more about God's word and spreading his love.

Forest Lake Presbyterian will make you feel like family as soon as you step through the door. Our children love the Sunday School programs, the garden, and the many service and fellowship activities that are offered! I highly recommend visiting and if you do, I'm sure you will come back!

I have grown up at FLPC and have spent most of my 46 years worshipping here except for the few years my husband and I lived outside of Columbia. It has always been "home" to me and we are blessed with a strong, supportive and loving group of church leaders. Our leaders are supported by a dedicated, hard-working and welcoming congregation. We have a diverse membership that enjoys studying, worshipping, serving and fellowship together. Through all of life's ups and downs God's love is constantly been present through Forest Lake Presbyterian Church. If you are looking for a church home, we welcome you to join us at the church on the corner of Rockbridge and N. Trenholm.
