We believe in and follow the teachings of Christ as we are lead by the Holy Spirit in our time and place. As a congregation we strive to be spiritually and emotionally healthy by putting our faith into practice through sharing God’s love in open honesty, care, and concern.
At First Pres we are very focused on outreach and mission, empowering others through our service, love and grace. From free Saturday lunch, to disaster assistance, to listening to the story of another we strive to answer Christ’s call in the local community and beyond.

Prescott Bridge to Canada located in our community. We are a part of

Vacation Bible School
Vacation Bible School is well under way. The theme is the "everywhere funfair", which focuses on exploring different countries throughout the world, and learning about God being everywhere, that he is every country. These lessons are taught through discovery and science, a story session and crafts. Music and games are also included.
On a hot Sunday morning in Ogdensburg, NY you will not find the congregation of the First Presbyterian Church in their 200 plus year old Sanctuary, instead you will find them worshiping in the back yard!!
