    The church building is at the corner of Oswego Street (Rt. 57) and Tulip Streets in the village of Liverpool, only a few blocks from the NYS Thruway.   See the map on the Home page.

  • Who are Presbyterians?  What do you Believe?

    Liverpool First Presbyterian Church is part of the Presbyterian Church (USA).  See the beliefs page for a brief description of beliefs, or visit the PCUSA website.

  • Where do I go once I arrive?

    If you are coming for the worship service at 10:15 come through the sanctuary doors in the front of the building. There is a lift for those who cannot manage stairs off the Oswego Street entrance.

  • What happenS during a typical worship service?

    The bulletin will list the components of worship and its order. You will receive a bulletin from an usher when you enter the sanctuary.  Large-print hymnals, bulletins, and hearing devices are available.  Restrooms are available through the left hand door at the front of the sanctuary.  A diaper changing station is in the restroom at the bottom of the stairs at the rear of the sanctuary.  For parents, your children are welcome to worship with the congregation.  If you prefer, the nursery for young children is available through the right hand door at the front of the sanctuary.  "Time for Young Disciples" is the children's sermon and you are welcome to accompany your child up front.  During "Passing of the Peace" you may shake hands (or cross hands over your chest if you prefer) along with saying "The peace of Christ be with you."  After worship walk downstairs for coffee hour.

  • Is there a dress code I need to follow?

    No.  LFPC is an intergenerational church with a worship service that connects people of all ages and backgrounds in a welcoming environment. You will find a variety of dress from our diverse congregation—from formal suits and dress to jeans and t-shirts! 

  • Are my children able to participate in worship?

    YES.  Children worship with the congregation. There is nursery care for children up through kindergarten. Young children worship with their parents the first part of worship and then go to the nursery during the sermon. There are worship buckets in the back of the church for children to use. There is also a rocking chair in the back corner for parents with babies.

  • How often do you have Communion?

    All are welcome who accept the invitation to the Table. Those who come need not be concerned about their personal appearance or aptitude. What matters is that the love, the grace and the hospitality in God the Holy Spirit create unanimity among us. This meal is provided, not because we have earned the right to eat and drink with Jesus, but simply as an act of divine love. Communion, also known as The Lord’s Supper, is served on the first Sunday of every month during worship.

  • What do you have for families?

    We have paid nursery staff for our little ones, and we have faith classes for toddlers through adults. See the GROW page for opportunities.

  • How can I learn more about LFPC?

    In the pew there is a connection card for you to fill out that will let the pastor know you would like to be contacted. You can call the church at 457-3161 to talk directly with Rev. Anderson. You can also talk to an elder or deacon before or after the worship service.
