First Presbyterian Church New Bern Christmas Card

Every year since 1990 I’ve created a New Bern Christmas card. This years card features First Presbyterian Church to celebrate their 200th anniversary.

2017 marks the bicentennial celebration year of First Presbyterian Church of New Bern. The formal organization took place on January 7, 1817, at the home of Mrs. Elizabeth Minor. The Reverend John Knox Witherspoon established the church with 13 founding members. Construction began in 1819, and the sanctuary was dedicated on January 6, 1822. Painting and copyright – Janet Francoeur. (Original is sold.)
