Welcome to the First Presbyterian Church website. We hope this site will help you learn more about us and our witness for Christ. We strive to recognize and nurture the Christ in ourselves and each person that we encounter along the way. Our church is a thriving community of believers, and lovers of the word of God. First Presbyterian Church has a long tradition of outreach and service to its members and the community. We hope you will join us for service on Sunday to experience for yourself the fellowship of Christ.

Presbyterian Women of First Presbyterian will have a Spring Gathering Saturday, April 25 at the church beginning at 10:30. The first hour will include a short devotion, a business meeting to elect the moderator and secretary and a program. At 11:30 we will adjourn to Fellowship Hall for a Greek lunch. There is no cost. We welcome all women attending our church. After Easter there will be a sign up sheet to help us determine the correct amount of food to prepare. Please note this on your calendar.





On Tuesday, March 24, we hosted our first "Community Meal" in our Fellowship Hall. On a rainy evening we were pleased to welcome 47 hungry folks who ate with us. 124 meals-to-go were given out. We then served 30 of our cooks, servers, greeters, hospitality crew and clean-up folks. That's 201 meals. It was a great effort from the 1st Presbyterian parishoners. We had so much fruit and baked goods donated by you. Price Chopper donated all the bread. Daylight Donuts donated dozens of doughnuts. We have, in fact, frozen some of the left-overs for use at our April community meal. The unused salad greens were given to the Alliance Against Family Violence. Of the 33 helpers, 8 were Saint Mary Campus Ministery students.


The next meal will be the 4th Tuesday in April which is April 28. Keep that date in mind, please.



Thank you so much to each of you who provided help, baked goods and/or fruit. We were awesome together!!
