Nestled midway between New Orleans and Pensacola, Ocean Springs has a well-deserved reputation as one of the Gulf Coast’s more laid back beach communities. Voted one of the ten Happiest Seaside Towns by Coastal Living in 2015, its historic and sheltered downtown is home to numerous art galleries and shops. In 2005, Hurricane Katrina thrust Ocean Springs into the public eye, with photos of devastation including the badly damaged Biloxi Bay Bridge making national and international news.
First Presbyterian Church has been a part of the Ocean Springs community since the late 19th century. The church’s current sanctuary, dedicated in August of 1995, recently underwent a major remodeling and expansion, including a balcony and additional seating, as well as a new audio and video system centered around a pair of Renkus-Heinz Iconyx IC24-RN digitally steered array loudspeakers.
