First Presbyterian Church of Lake Mary

128 West Wilbur Avenue
Lake Mary, FL 32795


In 1894, under the leadership of Rev. J. F. Sundell, a group of Lake Mary's founding father's joined to form a community church.

Gathering signatures of other early residents, a petition was signed and submitted by Reverend Sundell to the governing board of the South Florida Presbytery in Lakeland, Florida, to request affiliation with the Presbyterian Church. Approval was granted on October 10, 1984.

Over the next 30 years, the church served the community as a place of worship, as well as a meeting place for many social events, open to residents of all faiths and denominations. 

On December 15 1927, the members of the church, under the guidance of Reverend James Thompson, began making plans to erect a building. Work began on December 26, 1927, with over fifty volunteers taking part to construct the building that now sits on the original site. With credit granted for materials, generous monetary donations and hundreds of volunteer hours, the building was completed over a period of two and one half years.
