A Community of Hope, Dignity, & Welcome
First Presbyterian Church of Glen Cove offers members and visitors a chance to become part of something greater, to grow in our love of God and for one another within our beloved community. We seek to be a welcoming community of faith where all can belong regardless of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, or ability.
Our church is part of the Presbyterian Church (USA), but our pastor is part of the United Church of Christ and our community members come from a variety of spiritual and religious backgrounds. Being part of the PC(USA) means that we are part of the Reformed tradition of Christianity, which emerged out of the Protestant Reformation. One of our sayings is "The church reformed, always reforming," because we believe that the church is always going through reformations in small ways and big ways.
We seek to be a church that is in touch with our Christian traditions while also being present to what is going on in the world around us. For us, this means that we seek to follow the way of Jesus by practicing empathy, compassion, and social justice in our daily lives. We believe that Christ can be found in the most unexpected places and certainly in the people around us. We also believe that God's love embraces all of us exactly as we are, no matter what.
