About MPC

Marshall Presbyterian Church is located in the Town of Marshall, county seat of Madison County, North Carolina. The church ministers to the spiritual needs of the Madison community in which national and world issues share the stage with the concerns of average working Americans. A member congregation of the Presbyterian Church [USA], we are rooted in the missionary spirit of the first Presbyterians who came to offer ministries of health care and education to the mountain people in Madison County. We are bound to one another by God's unconditional love. Some of us have lived our whole lives in Madison County, others came for work, some have retired here, and others grew up here, left for careers elsewhere and came home.

The congregation was established in 1898, and its theology is anchored in the Reformed tradition. You may learn more about us online. Our church statistics, courtesy of the Presbyterian Church (USA), are available here: ten-year trends.

Small but mighty, the congregation is a fellowship in which people of many backgrounds gather to worship, learn, serve, and have fun. The church ministers to the community, participates in community events, and strives to provide a place for people in the community to be for classes, musical events, and community-serving organizations such as Neighbors in Need, AA, and the Boy Scouts. 

The church holds its own special events throughout the year. Join us for meals or coffee hours after the Sunday service; Pig Pickin' with the Black Mountain Home for Children, Youth, and Families, and Art on the Island in the fall; Candelight Christmas Eve service, Ash Wednesday and Easter activities, and musical programs.

All are welcome ... Come share in the joy of worship; take advantage of the opportunity for spiritual growth; meet new friends and find support, and accept the call to be Christ's witness in the world. You are always welcome at Marshall Presbyterian Church!
