Greetings from the Pastor

Greetings Neighbors,

It is with great joy that I welcome you to our site! In August of 2018, my wife and I decided to take a leap of faith and move to Lubbock, TX from Tennessee. We left all we had ever known to be home, which included our family and friends. We chose to step out on faith and see where God would lead us, and we are so glad we did!


First Cumberland Presbyterian of Lubbock has been a family away from home. They are a loving and welcoming people, eager to serve God and neighbor.


I know it is difficult to find a church, I know what it is like to feel judged before being known. Taking a step of faith to enter a new place takes courage. So, we at FCPC want you to know, you are welcome here. We want you to find a place to seek God, be nurtured in your faith journey, and be equipped to serve. We hope you will join us!


Grace and Peace,

Rev. Nathaniel C. Mathews,

Pastor of FCPC of Lubbock
