We provide other services at First Presbyterian Church of Elko, such as baptisms, weddings, and funerals. We also produce a bi-monthly newsletter to communicate with our church family.
Individuals of any age may be baptized by our minister upon request. Baptisms are typically performed during a Sunday service, but other arrangements may be made, if desired. Baptisms in the Presbyterian Church are a congregational matter and therefore are part of a worship service
Anyone wishing to be baptized or to have his or her children baptized should contact the pastor at (775) 738-3430 or submit a request using this website’s contact form to make arrangements.
The First Presbyterian Church of Elko welcomes Christian couples seeking to marry in its sanctuary or on its grounds.
Our pastor also may be available to perform Christian marriage ceremonies elsewhere or in other churches with permission of the other church.
Our pastor will meet with the couple to arrange the service. She will utilize a pre-marriage questionnaire to gather data about the couple, and she will provide the couple with a written evaluation prior to the wedding.
For more information or to reserve the church for a wedding, call (775) 738-3430 or submit a request using this website’s contact form.
The First Presbyterian Church of Elko welcomes funerals to be held in its Sanctuary officiated by our pastor or, by request, a visiting minister.
Our pastor may also be available to perform funerals elsewhere, at the family’s request, and with the permission of the other location or church.
For more information or to reserve the church for a funeral, call (775) 738-3430 or submit a request using this website’s contact form.
