Our Presence in the Community

We are engaged in many ways. There are opportunities for families to get involved, and to receive help.

Youth and Family

Our “FPC 9-ers” Youth group, named for the nine fruits of the Holy Spirit in the Bible, meet at 5:30-7 pm on Wednesdays, under the direction of our Youth Minister Stephanie Davisson. They begin with supper together, and then enjoy singing, crafts, Bible study and prayer. Our children’s group, the “Peeps,” (Grades K-5) meet after school, 3:30-5pm on Thursdays, also under the direction of Stephanie Davisson. After enjoying a snack, they do a Bible study, work on homework, sing and do crafts. Each summer there is a Vacation Bible School. There are also special fun days throughout the year. . Check out our calendar or contact us today to see what's happening in 2017.

In Our Mission

First Presbyterian Church actively participates in a number of missions in the community, among them the Crisis Center, the Good Samaritan Food Pantry, the Backpack nutrition program for children, Habitat for Humanity and the work of the Rensselaer Area Ministers’ Association. We also take part in national and world mission by assembling disaster relief kits, by supporting Wycliffe Bible Translators, by supporting medical mission through Malawi Matters, and helping to sponsor mission co-workers in Egypt. Our children have also raised money for livestock enterprises in the U.S. and overseas through the Heifer Project. We also support the larger mission work of the Presbyterian Church (USA). Our Mission Committee directs our mission work and would welcome your participation.
