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 Sunflower: On the Possibilities and Limits of Forgiveness
by Simon Wiesenthal

Pastor Kimberly Chastain will lead the discussions.
February 16, 23, March 2, 16, & 23

Simon Wiesenthal was a prisoner in a Nazi labor camp when he was asked to give absolution to a German SS officer who was dying. Wiesenthal walked away but years later wondered if he has done the right thing. He wrote up the story and asked a broad community of thinkers wrestle with Wiesenthal’s questions, challenging us to think about our beliefs on justice and compassion. Includes responses from:

- His Holiness the Dalai Lama
- Archbishop Desmond Tutu
- Abraham Joshua and Suzanne Heschel
- Primo Levi
- Bishop Franz Konig
and 38 other thinkers.

Contact Pastor Kimberly if you plan to attend: Pastor@upcbgm.org or call (607) 722-4219.

To help Pastor Kimberly plan for the event please confirm your attendance via e-mail or telephone by Feb. 12. Pastor@upcbgm.org or call (607) 722-4219.
