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.

Holiness for the Holiday Season

As Christmastime rolls around again, countless worn, frustrated people find themselves wondering, “How can I make this time of year actually mean something?” For the spiritually-inclined, that question might take this form: “How can I turn this hectic, often crass holiday back into a holy day?” Join us as we seek to answer these questions together.

“Blue Christmas” Service

Sunday, December 13, 2 p.m., in the Chapel

A service of remembrance for those we love and miss in the holiday season.

Tis the Season to enjoy Christmas Caroling! Saturday, December 19, 1:00 – 4:00 p.m.

Calling all who love to sing or participate in sharing the Christmas season. Join us in caroling to people who are a part of our congregation and may not be able to come to services.  We are looking for singers, people willing to play portable instruments (recorders, flutes, bell ringers, percussion players), and drivers willing to drive from place to place. (Driving does not commit you to join the singing, but it is contagious to join in!)

Meet at the church.  We will be leaving from the church to go to geographically grouped locations. You will not be going to all locations.   We will work with you to coordinate drivers, players, and singers. Signup is on the bulletin board next to the reception area.

Last year we saw so many smiles and enjoyment as we visited people in private homes and continuing care homes. Consider sharing the music of this season!  Questions? call Becky Mebert 754-9892 or the church office 722-4219.
