Worship with us online
Looking for an easy way to support our 24/7 Little Free Pantry? Purchase food and household items through this Amazon wishlist. Items purchased will ship directly to First Presbyterian Church, Potsdam.
In line with many other churches in the region, and with CDC and NYS health recommendations, First Presbyterian Church Potsdam is suspending in-person Sunday worship service for the time being. But we can still come together Sunday morning.
Join us Sunday, January 24, at 10 am online via our Facebook page for our next service of worship and prayer with worship leader Rev. Dr. Shaun Whitehead
At Potsdam Presbyterian you are unconditionally welcomed
We extend a special welcome to those who are single, married, divorced, gay, or just not sure, filthy rich, dirt poor, or no habla Ingles. And a special welcome to those who are crying newborns, skinny as a rail or could afford to lose a few pounds. We don’t care if you’re more churchy than the Pope, or haven’t been in church since Joey’s Baptism.
We welcome you if you are over 60 but not grown up yet, or a teenager who is growing up too fast. We welcome soccer moms, NASCAR dads, starving artists, tree huggers, latte sippers, vegetarians, and junk food eaters. We welcome those who are in recovery and those who are not. We welcome you if you are having problems, or you’re down in the dumps, or if you don’t like organized religion.
If you blew all your offering money at the dog track you are welcome here. We offer a special welcome to those who think work is too hard, don’t work, can’t spell, or because Grandma is in town and wanted to go to church.
We welcome those who are inked, pierced, or both. We welcome those who could use a prayer right now, had religion shoved down your throat as a kid or got lost in traffic and wound up here by mistake. We welcome tourists, seekers, doubters, bleeding hearts, and you.
We welcome you because if you’re good enough for God (and you are) then you are good enough for us.
First Presbyterian Church participates in the Presbyterian Church (USA) Commitment to peacemaking. Our intention is to pursue avenues of peace and justice for ourselves, our families and communities, for all people in the world in which we live. We seek to be spirits of reconciliation.
Along with other More Light PC (USA) churches and supporters of the Covenant Network, we at First Presbyterian Church of Potsdam are committed to the full participation of all persons in our church community without regard for sexual orientation, personal background or human condition.
