After years of study and consultation, Decatur Presbyterian Church has begun a new Capital Campaign. We prayerfully discerned how best to preserve the character of our beautiful and historic campus while renovating it to meet the needs of a 21st century church. 

Three themes guide our efforts:

  1. Making our buildings more hospitable by improving their accessibility and function.
  2. Addressing critical repairs to our infrastructure.
  3. Relocating and improving our faith formation spaces for children and youth.
