The first church in the Carmichael area, Carmichael Community Church was officially established on December 2, 1923. In 1925 church leaders chose affiliation with the Presbyterian Church because it provided much-needed structure and administrative support. They also liked the democratic organization of the denomination and its emphasis on education. Throughout the past century, Carmichael and Carmichael Presbyterian Church have grown and developed together.
CPC has a long legacy in Carmichael and the greater Sacramento area. Our Heritage Committee maintains archives of documents of historical significance and published a book, Heritage of Faith: A 75-Year History of Carmichael Presbyterian Church in 1998. A second book was published in 2023, Stories of Faith: Carmichael Presbyterian Church at 100.
Centennial celebrations took place throughout 2023, as we celebrated 100 years of praising God and serving the community. A companion book to Heritage of Faith was published, titled Stories of Faith: Carmichael Presbyterian Church at 100. It is available for purchase online at Bookshop.org, Amazon.com, and other retail platforms. You can also purchase a copy in the church office.
