Fun, fellowship, & fitness

All ages and experience levels
Pickleball is a paddle sport created for all ages and skill levels. The rules are simple and the game is easy for beginners to learn, but can develop into a fast-paced, competitive game for experienced players. Pickleball is played on a court with a paddle and a plastic ball with holes, and combines elements of tennis, badminton, and ping-pong. It's energetic and social, and can be played outdoors as well. When the weather is nice, this group will occasionally play at Riverdale Park. All First Presbyterian Church members and their friends are welcome!
September - May
7:00 pm, second Thursday of the month
Our church's book club meets once a month for discussion and fellowship. We cover a wide range of tastes in the books selected, including fiction, nonfiction, bestsellers, and relevant classics. It's our tradition to host a special discussion on the One Book South Dakota every year! Our library at First Presbyterian Church does an incredible job of keeping our book selections stocked and available free for everyone.

This group is a subgroup of Bell Chorale, who gather together to study God's word in a smaller environment. Group members treasure this time together to study and challenge one another with different viewpoints on some tough issues. The group is supportive of its members, celebrating the happier moments in life and lifting each other up when the going gets tough. We share prayer requests all year long. The support and encouragement given to one another is the heart of this group.
Fun & Fellowship
A small group for families that meets for kid-friendly fellowship, family-friendly service opportunities, and adult-only outings throughout the year. This group stays connected through the FPC Sioux Falls Fun & Fellowship Facebook group and all are welcome to join!
Knit, Cross-stitch, Crochet, & Needlework Group
Second and Fourth Thursdays of each month
11:30 am - 1:30 pm
This small group of handiwork lovers share patterns, techniques, motivation, and good conversation! We began as a group of knitters of all abilities and have branched out to include cross stitching, crocheting, needlepoint, and more. We sometimes tackle group charity projects, like red knit baby hats for American Heart month and prayer squares. Our goal is to be creative, supportive, grow in skills, and most importantly, make friendships within the body of Christ. It's a casual open group, so come when you can even if it's just for a short time!

Women's Bible Study & Mission Group
Monthly Circle Meetings
Presbyterian Women (PW) is an independent organization within the Presbyterian Church of more than 200,000 women. Presbyterian Women aligns our ministry and hearts around a shared purpose, the PW Purpose.
Forgiven and freed by God in Jesus Christ, and empowered by the Holy Spirit, we commit ourselves:
- to nurture our faith through prayer and Bible study,
- to support the mission of the church worldwide,
- to work for justice and peace, and
- to build an inclusive, caring community of women that strengthens the Presbyterian Church and witnesses to the promise of God's kingdom.
These commitments are lovingly carried out in our Presbyterian Women group. Our group supports many local, national, and worldwide mission programs and holds several annual fundraising projects.
The PW of First Presbyterian Church extend a warm welcome to every woman in the church to join!
