Prayer Church -- March 6-13 -- Chillicothe First
Chillicothe First Presbyterian Church: This congregation was formed in the early days of the settlement of Chillicothe. Fourteen Presbyterians were gathered in 1797 by a young Presbyterian minister, The Reverend William Speer, who was exploring the Northwest Territory. From its early beginnings First Presbyterian Church has faithfully served the Chillicothe community. Following the recent retirement of The Reverend James Grove, pastor for 42 years, the congregation continues to listen for God's guidance as they journey into their future ministry and mission in Chillicothe.
