For Visitors

Welcome to First Presbyterian Church of Bloomsburg!

We believe God is calling us to work for a church and a world where all are included and God’s grace is made known.

On Sunday mornings, our worship service averages about 40 people in person and on Zoom. We are working professionals, stay-at-home parents, and retired travelers. We encourage our children to be curious and active in worship; we affirm the gifts of the young and seek to be a home away from home for college students.

On Sundays some of us wear suits, some jeans, and sometimes the pastor wears a robe. With each service we try to remember that God’s word speaks to all of us and yet speaks to each of us differently. Therefore, when it comes to music, prayer, and leadership, we depend upon more than one type.

As a Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) church in the Presbytery of Northumberland, we believe that in Jesus, God shows us how to welcome diversity and to work for unity, and that we have something valuable to learn from other traditions and faiths. We seek to be an active witness for social justice, a friend to our neighbors, and a sign of peace to all.

We are a member of More Light Presbyterians, a non-profit organization dedicated to allowing the full participation of LGBTQIA+ people in life, ministry, and witness of the Presbyterian Church (USA) and in society.
