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.

First Presbyterian Church

United Presbyterian Church is now on Facebook.

Click this to view our facebook page.

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.

Thursday Morning Prayer Opportunity

8:00 a.m. in the Chapel

Join us in our series on contemplative prayer! Ancient monastics, by contrast, meant by contemplation, the wordless, rapt repose in the presence of God, not thinking about God, but resting in God. It is this “contemplation,” this inner silence, we seek to practice and be shaped by.

Bouquet of Remembrance, Nov 2nd.

On November 2, we will be celebrating the feast of all saints. Everyone is invited to bring a flower to add to the bouquet representing loved ones you would like included. Extra carnations will be available for those who need them.
