Welcome

Worship with us online

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, September 27, at 10 am online via our Facebook page for our next service of worship and prayer with worship leader Rev. Laurena Wickham Will and the congregation of Ogdensburg Presbyterian Church.

At Potsdam Presbyterian you are unconditionally welcomed

Join us for worship and fellowship each Sunday at 10 am

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.

More Light!
