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.

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.

Abolition. In 2012 I founded Lviv Abolitionists to combat human trafficking. We conduct awareness and prevention seminars for school kids in Lviv, organize awareness campaigns in our city, and minister to rescued victims.

Worship. I am the worship coordinator and one of the worship leaders for my church, Living Word. I have also traveled around Ukraine leading worship at churches, youth groups, and festivals.

Coming in September- Praying with Christian Mystics:  A Nine Month Journey of Prayer.

This fall, the Thursday morning prayer group will begin a new 9-month spiritual formation study: Praying with Christian Mystics:  A Nine Month Journey of Prayer.  Each month will focus on a different medieval Christian Mystic, such as Teresa of Avila, Julian of Norwich and John of the Cross.   We will explore prayer practices that are based on the life and writings of each mystic.  Participants will be encouraged to further explore the background of each mystic, and engage in additional prayer, meditation and reflection exercises that are based on their life and writings, and will be given a written resource to guide their journey.

We will begin the new series on Thursday, September 10, at 8:00 am in the chapel.  The group meets for 30 minutes, so that those who need to go on to work can participate.

If you would be interested in this study, but are unable to meet at 8:00 am Thursday morning, talk to Pastor Kimberly about finding a time to start another group!
