Have you ever noticed the OTHER church on the other corner of S. Claiborne Ave and Jefferson Ave?  We have a very interesting shared history!  Both congregations can trace our roots to the same man, Rev. Dr. Theodore Clapp in the early 1800s.  Both churches occupied different locations and have ended up katty corner from each other in Broadmoor.  Fast forward to 2015: hosting a joint crawfish boil to raise money for UNITY of Greater New Orleans.

Help First Presbyterian finish our kitchen renovation!

We have set up a Go Fund Me campaign to finish our kitchen renovation project.  As they say, "The kitchen is the heart of the home," and at First Presbyterian we already have a lot of heart.  What we don't have is a proper commercial kitchen.
