Colleyville Presbyterian Church is a joyful and hospitable community seeking to follow Jesus together. We would love for you to join us.
At our church, you’ll hear this phrase a lot: “Christ is our life.” What we do mean by those words? We mean that we are those who know that outside of Christ, we have no life at all – and all our life is found in him. We gather for worship each Sunday in Word and Sacrament, because Christ is our life. We invite others into our homes for meals and friendship, because Christ is our life. We pursue our work and vocations, because Christ is our life. We gladly follow wherever our Risen Savior leads, because Christ is our life.
We offer ministries for everyone in your family, making it easy to get involved.
