Our Mission Statement: We gather as God's people to deepen our understanding of Christ; to spread His word and teachings; and to reach out to our church family, our community, and the world through acts of compassion, kindness, and love.


First Presbyterian Church participates in Blessings in a Backpack, a hunger ministry that provides food over the weekend for children at risk of going hungry. We are cooperating at present with Gansevoort Elementary School. On April 10 YNN filmed us packing the backpacks. You can view the news story that aired on April 13 here.

We cook meals for the Rome Rescue Mission twice a month, cooking on Tuesdays and serving at the mission on the third and fourth Wednesdays of each month. Contact Liz Clough if you'd like to help
