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.

Monday Book Study Sept. 15, 22, 29 & Oct. 6

The Heart of Christianity by Marcus Borg, Elder Chris Burger will lead the discussions (Upper Lounge, 2nd Floor)

This book talks about what it means to be a Christian in today’s world. In part one, Borg focuses on the basics of faith, the Bible, God, and Jesus. In part two, he tackles some Christian phrases that progressive Christians have shied away from, like “born again,” “sin,” and “salvation,” and challenges us to reclaim them.  In this highly readable book, Borg helps us shift from the old paradigm of American Christianity to an emerging compassionate rethinking of the gospel and the essence of Christianity as a lived faith.  Sign-up in the Terrace room if you would like us to order you a book.
