About Us

Who we are, where we come from, and where we're headed as a church family

Who we are

Sylacauga First Assembly cares about one thing more than anything else, Jesus Christ. SFA is a family of individuals that have found hope in Jesus, and simply want as many people as possible to experience that exact same freedom.

Where we come from

In January 1945 a small group of believers began meeting for worship in a 14ft. by 16ft. wood frame building on the Old Talladega Highway. On may 26, 1945 a meeting was held and Rev. D.H. Brown, Alabama Home Missions Director of the Assemblies of God, set the church in order with Rev. Sam Connell being elected the first pastor.


On November 16th, 1945 a parsonage with two lots, totaling 100 ft. by 16ft., was purchased at the corner of Oakland and 8th street. A small block sanctuary seating approximately 100 people was constructed. In 1950 five Sunday school rooms were added to the front of the building.
