Coalescence (n) - United into a whole.

Welcome to the First Presbyterian Church of Wilkes-Barre's website!  We are a congregation of children, women and men from many denominational, social and cultural backgrounds.  We gather together for spiritual comfort and challenge.

The Gospel of Christ is proclaimed in its multifaceted manifestations.  Living the Gospel, takes precedence over dogma.  Inclusion, acceptance and imagination are vital parts of our vision of God's kingdom.
