About Us

We invite you to join with us in the journey of faith at First Presbyterian Church of York, where there are many opportunities for worship, Christian growth and service. We invite you to explore and consider these opportunities as you browse our web site.

We are a congregation of the Presbyterian Church (USA)

We have a membership of approximately 1,250 with a rich diversity of education, age, income and experience. Even though we have a deep sense of history and tradition we also recognize the need to be innovative in our worship services, ministries, music programs and mission projects. We are blessed with a caring and involved congregation, a talented and dedicated staff and a strong group of lay leaders.

We are a church with many young families

A large number of young families have been attracted to this congregation in recent years by our dynamic and innovative children’s education and music ministries. We are a vital and growing congregation in an established community.

We are an ecumenical church

Our church has become a home for many coming from other traditions, enriching us with a wide variety of beliefs, views, and biblical interpretations. We embrace people in all stages of faith development and from differing theological perspectives

We are a community church

Many in our congregation are active in community, cultural, and service organizations.  Most of the members of First Presbyterian Church live within a 5 mile radius of the church. However, some families travel as much as 25 miles to participate in various programs.
