What we hold in common is belief in the good news of reconciliation to God and to one another through Jesus Christ.  We are committed to live and grow in that good news and to apply it to our lives.

If you would like to be a part of a supportive faith community as you deal with the stresses of life today, we hope you'll come and visit us.  We'll be glad to see you and to welcome you into the care and nurture of our life together.

Welcome to the website of The United Presbyterian Church of Binghamton!

        We are a new congregation of God's people born out of a merger between two historic churches in Binghamton - First Presbyterian Church and West Presbyterian Church.  If you are seeking to learn more about Jesus Christ and discover what God can do in your life, we invite you to join us for worship, education, service to the community, mission, and fellowship.

You will find us to be a congregation of all sorts of people: young and old, single and married, adults and children, traditional and nontraditional families. We are teachers, secretaries, engineers, homemakers, line workers, retirees. Some are involved in a church for the first time (or the first time in a long time), others are transfers from other denominations, and some are lifelong Presbyterians.

The Jesus Fatwah: Love Your (Muslim) Neighbor as Yourself - DVD - Class

Mondays, 6:15–7:15 p.m.  January 4, 18, 25; February 1, 15

Much of what passes for information about Islam is rooted in stereotype and watered by fear.  In The Jesus Fatwah, seventeen Islamic and Christian scholars offer reliable information about what Muslims believe, how they live out their faith, and how we all can be about building relationships across the lines of faith. No previous knowledge necessary. To help plan seating; please rsvp for this class.

Thurs., Jan. 7, 14, 21, 28; February 4, 11  5:00 - 6:30 p.m.

Living the Questions is an exploration of the major themes of Christianity, with an emphasis on questions rather than answers. Each Thursday we will gather to share a meal, then watch a 20 minute video presentation. As we welcome the new year, we’ll honor creation as we cover the topics: “Restoring Relationships”, “The Prophetic Jesus”, “Evil, Suffering, and a God of Love”, “The Myth of Redemptive Violence”, “Practicing Resurrection”, and “Honoring Creation”. To help plan please; rsvp for this class.

Grief Support Program, Sat., Feb 20 & Mar 12
11 a.m.  - 2 p.m.
Hosted by the Congregational Care Team
The Labyrinthine Path: Living; Loving; Loss; and Leaning Forward
A Gentle Exploration of Grief

As human beings, none of us escapes the upheavals of change, loss, and transition in all of their myriad forms. Whether we have experienced the death of a loved one, the loss of a job, a broken relationship through betrayal or divorce, letting go of a beloved companion animal, geographical relocation, the empty nest, or any other life change, navigating our lives during such times poses profound challenges as well as opportunities for growth. In this Lenten series, we will acknowledge that grief is a natural part of life’s labyrinthine path.

Using gentle reflective and creative tools, participants will have an opportunity to explore beliefs about grief and will gain insight into ways that their innate creativity and resiliency offer a pathway to lean forward wholeheartedly after change, loss and transition.

Yvonne Lucia, RN, MDiv is experienced and passionate about the transformational potential of every person's inborn creativity across the spectrum of living, loving, experiencing loss, and leaning forward wholeheartedly.
