Our Church


The church was chartered in 1847, and is one of the oldest in Indiana. The present sanctuary was erected in 1895. James Van Rensselaer, the founder of Rensselaer, originally gave land for the church and is buried in the churchyard. The sanctuary has a variety of lovely stained glass windows—some depicting scenes from the Bible, some Christian symbols, and four large geometric rose windows, many of which were crafted by a member of the church. The church has a long and distinguished history of community involvement. First

Presbyterian is theologically progressive, and is a welcoming community for all.
