First Presbyterian Church is a small, intergenerational, and growing faith community. We welcome all. No matter where you are in your spiritual life, whether you are a long time church goer or have never stepped foot in a religious house of worship. There is a place for you here! You might be looking for a fresh start, a hug from a new friend, a cup of coffee and good conversation, or a place to ask questions. We are here to provide support and love on your journey. That is our calling, dear friends, since God loved us we ought to love one another. In community we seek to follow Jesus Christ’s example “not to be served but to serve.”
First Presbyterian is a member church of the Presbytery of Long Island and the Presbyterian Church USA.

What do Presbyterians believe?
As a Presbyterian Church we are “always being reformed” and a common expression of our faith and mission is “The Brief Statement of Faith.”
