Welcome to JAPC!

The members of Jefferson Avenue Presbyterian Church welcome you to our church's web-site. We hope as you search its contents it reveals what we seek to be and do - in worship, study, service, fellowship and mission - as we serve Christ in Detroit. In all we do, we try to reach out with friendliness, compassion and love to those within, and beyond, our congregation.

In that spirit, we invite you to experience what it means to be part of our church family. Join us for worship or one of the church activities. You would be valued and warmly welcomed.

We would hope, in the beauty of the Sanctuary, the comfort of the building and the hospitality offered, you will find the serenity and awareness that God's creative act continues to unfold in your life.

Grace and Peace...

Peter Smith

Pastor Emeritus
