Who we are
Welcome to the First Cumberland Presbyterian Church of Dyersburg, Tennessee. You can just call us “The Cumberland Church”, everyone in town does. We are so happy that you are curious about our church and hope that this portion of our website will help to answer any questions that you may have or a least give you a little better understanding about who we are.
We are a small church of around 360 ish people. On a typical Sunday morning worship service you can expect those in attendance to number 200 or more. We currently have one worship service on Sunday mornings at 10:15 AM. Also, starting at 9:00 AM on Sunday mornings, we have several Discipleship/Bible Study/Small groups that meet prior to morning worship. Some of these groups have been meeting for several decades, but they are always eager to welcome new folks. So, whether you are eight or eighty AND whether there is one of you or a whole family, we have Sunday morning worship and discipleship opportunities for you each week.
Here's the deal, the Cumberland Church cares about one thing more than anything else, Jesus Christ. Cumberland Church is a family of individuals that have found hope in Jesus, and simply want as many people as possible to experience that exact same freedom.
Our mission is to lead people into a growing relationship with Jesus
Where we come from
The Cumberland Presbyterian Church of Dyersburg has been around since July of 1850. Don't let our age fool you! We are a vibrant community of faith that has grown and changed over the years in response to God's calling in our lives. We continue to faithfully branch out into the community in new ways.
Where we're headed
What's the bottom line? More than ever, Cumberland is committed to fostering a family built around hope in Christ. We continue seeking to be responsive to the needs of our neighbors and to adapt the way we do ministry to actually be helpful to them. We also understand that many folks in our community have had less than desirable encounters/experiences with church. We get it, and we are working diligently to be relevant in our ministries and authentic in our hospitality.
Our vision is to create a church that non-churchy people want to engage with
