About us

Rev. Jaina Glaze, LPC

Jaina serves as our pastor. She has a Bachelor of Science in Education, Language Arts from Athens State University.  She received a Master of Divinity Degree from Columbia Theological Seminary in Decatur, Georgia, a Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the University of North Alabama, and an EdS in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Jacksonville State University. Jaina is a Licensed Professional Counselor in the State of Alabama (license #4507) and has been in the ministry since 2005.  She has been at our church since early 2014.  Jaina offers counseling to the community as a fee-based service, and offers counseling free to members of First Presbyterian Church in Sheffield.

If she's not in the office, she can often be found in her pottery studio finding some Sabbath! If you have trouble finding her there then she is off somewhere with her amazing husband, Phillip! Jaina is a wife, a mom, a grandmother, and also always hopes to be a friend.

Oh yeah, if you see Jaina out and about and she doesn't seem to recognize you, it's likely her identical twin, Hannah!

our pastor


We believe in the majesty and mercy of God, who is the Creator, Redeemer and Sustainer of all, and in Jesus Christ his only son. We gather together because God has called us to this place. We assemble not so much to share our thoughts and opinions, but to listen to the voice of God.

FPC Sheffield was established in 1904.  The brick structure we now occupy was completed in 1915 and remains a landmark in downtown Sheffield.  While very proud of our history, we have continued to evolve to meet the spiritual needs of the present community. 


We strive to be a place where people from all walks of life may grow together in God’s spirit and grace and to further God’s work .  We invite you to join us in this exciting journey



Worship is what one renders to God as the Greatest and Best.  We believe that the Sunday worship hour is the centerpiece of our Christian week


We begin our Sunday service at 11:00 am each Sunday.  You will experience a traditional service of sermon, song, prayer and sacrament. Review our weekly bulletin for more information on activities at FPC Sheffield.


As a guest, we want you to feel at home whether in a suit or jeans.  Be sure to sign our guest book so that we may get to know you,
