Greetings from the Pastor

Welcome to Watauga Avenue Presbyterian Church! Thank you for visiting our website. Our church has been part of Johnson City, Tennessee for nearly 125 years, and we remain a joyful and welcoming place to worship and serve in God’s name.

Watauga Avenue Presbyterian Church is a community of acceptance, where differences are respected, and connections to God and one another are planted and grown. God has a dynamic purpose for your life, and we offer you a community of believers to support your faith journey. Here you will find a church family that truly enjoys one another – and is waiting to welcome you.

Serving our neighbors is a top priority for us. We are involved in a variety of missions both within the Johnson City community and throughout the world. Come and join us – we offer plenty of ways to give back and make a difference.

We know God is doing great things at WAPC. Please join us for Sunday worship; we look forward to welcoming you!


Reverend Patricia Locke, Pastor
