Welcome!

Pastor Janet preachingI am so glad you are interested in finding out more about the Church of the 49ers, officially known as the First Presbyterian Church of Columbia. We were founded in 1854 during the height of the Gold Rush, and continue to serve the community 165 years later.

At the Church of the 49ers, God is the gold! We seek to grow rich in Christ, and share his wealth with everyone around us. Come worship with us on Sundays at 10 am, with family space and children’s Sunday School provided. Come to our free community dinners every Monday at 6 p.m. Our church is a Christ-centered, Bible-believing part of the Covenant Order of Evangelical Presbyterians (ECO) denomination, and you are welcome to take an active part in church ministry.

Questions? Check the FAQs for visitors here. Or call the church office, Tuesday-Friday, at 209-532-2441.

We’d love to meet you!

May the peace of Christ be with you,
Rev. Janet Russell
