Welcome to FPCA

Worship in Arlington, TX

Reformed worship and reformed theology

We know that visiting a church for the first time is not easy whether you have attended church your entire life or never at all. We are grateful for your interest and commit ourselves to doing our best to make your worship experience the best possible.



Renewing worship

We have two traditional worship services: 8:30am in the chapel, and 11:00am in the sanctuary (due to COVID restrictions we’re only having the 11:00am worship service in the sanctuary).
Communion is served on the first Sunday of each month.
Discipleship classes are available for all ages on Sunday mornings from 9:45-10:45. You will find attendees in a variety of clothes: blue jeans, suits, Cowboys jerseys, you name it! Come as you are. Children are welcome to worship. During our 11:00 worship, kids age 3 to fourth grade are invited to KFC (Kids for Christ) about halfway through the service (due to COVID restrictions we’re not having the KFC).


Membership at FPCA

Finding the right church is a tough decision. Whether you are new to church or new to this church we invite everyone with open arms into a relationship with Jesus Christ. We have a variety of opportunities for kids and adults, our family-like environment ensures everyone stays involved to help carry out God’s mission together.
