Local Churches

RUF wants to help you get involved in a local church!

At RUF we encourage every student to get involved with a church near campus. We know, you probably have a home church that you love and you wish all churches could be like it...but you should give others a try. There are many great churches in the Macon/Warner Robins area. We pray that students will find one that faithfully teaches the Word of God and blesses them during the college years.  Below are a few that support the ministry of RUF.


First Presbyterian Church of Macon

First Presbyterian Church is located in downtown Macon. From Mercer, take College Street to Georgia Avenue (next to the big Post Office). Turn right on Georgia Ave and go down the hill past Mercer Law school. FPC will be on your right once you get to downtown at the corner of First Street.  

Worship at 9:00 am and 11:15 am

College Sunday School at 10:10 am






North Macon Presbyterian Church is located about 10 minutes north of the campus.  Take I-75 north to exit 171. Turn left on Bass Road and go about 2 miles (or so) to Rivoli Drive. Turn right on Rivoli and the church will be on your right.

Worship at 10:45 am.






Strong Tower Fellowship is a mission church in Macon.  It has special commitment to being a multi-ethnic church.  It is located in midtown. Cross I-75 next to Fountain Carwash and continue up Vineville Avenue for about half a mile. It will be on your right about 1 block after Vineville Methodist Church.
