Upcoming Worship

 

This Sunday

On this third Sunday in Lent, Rev. Thorne will deliver the sermon "Take Me to the Water" based on Exodus 17:1-7  and John 4:1-42. Click  here to view the bulletin. 

 

Children’s Education

Sunday School follows the academic calendar through mid-June. Childcare will be provided for very young children throughout the summer.

Adult Education

The Men’s Fellowship meets for breakfast every Wednesday morning at 7:30am at the Plaza Diner. The men are currently reading and discussing J.D.Vance's book Hillbilly Elegy.  All men are welcome to join the discussion!

Serving Others

The Food Pantry continues to provide groceries to families who are in need. This week, 20 volunteers helped 86 patrons.

Worship services are streamed live over the Internet. If you find yourself out of town or at home under the weather, you need not miss a minute of the excitement around First Presbyterian Church! Tune in to worship through our website and listen to the music, the sermon, and all the rest of the sounds of worship (sorry, no video). We will provide the worship bulletin in PDF format so that you can follow along. No matter where you are in the world, we will be there, too! But be sure to tune in around 11:00 a.m. Eastern Time, because this is Live! From New York!

Social

Check out the weekly e-newsletter and Church calendar for the latest schedule of activities. 

Governance

Session meets monthly, normally on the 3rd Monday, except for July and August.

 

Thanks!

In previous years, on the Sunday before Thanksgiving we have written thank-you notes to honor the many people and things for which we are grateful. Reading them is thought-provoking and uplifting!

Read the thanks that people wrote in 2013.

Read the thank-you notes written in 2012.

"The Spirit of Sanctuary in the Time of Lent"
How do we find sanctuary? How do we become a sanctuary? The word derives from the Latin "sanctus" meaning "holy," but has political ramifications that echo in our daily headlines during this time of emergency. (And we can't live in the comfort of metaphor when sanctuary is real and urgent.) Join Elder Erik Brogger for a discussion about how Lent may speak to the fugitive in each of us, using Psalm 51 and other poetry. Join us at 10:00 AM in the gym, this Sunday, March 5th, and every Sunday in Lent, for what may be the only journey where the suggested preparation is that we UN-pack!
