Open Position for Christian Education Coordinator

Liverpool First Presbyterian Church is looking to fill an open part time position for the role of Christian Education Coordinator.  

The ministry of Christian Education is to partner with the Spirit of God and the community of faith to promote each person’s growth into the image and likeness of God as disciples and friends of Jesus Christ.


The Christian Education Coordinator (CEC) will plan and coordinate programs to facilitate the spiritual growth of the congregation through relationships built in the church, in faith classes, at Christian events, through community service and in worship.

Keys to the engagement are recognizing the shifts in ministry toward:

• intergenerational learning and influence

• the role of parents at home as spiritual teachers for their children

• digital and virtual gatherings

• group gatherings that occur outside of worship services and the church building


For questions, please contact us at (315) 457-3161 or

A Note on the Have a Blessed... Banner

As Rev. Anderson spoke about in his “Open Hand” sermon on March 21, 2021 we believe the world world wants to see Jesus in his followers; that is in the forms of justice, compassion, unity, selflessness, respect, love and abundant life. All the love of Jesus is wrapped up in a seed, a seed that we have to plant in order for it to open up. When we offer a “Blessed Ramadan” to our Muslim friends and neighbors we are not compromising our own beliefs, we are simply acknowledging, honoring and appreciating them. We are letting the seed fall to the ground in love in hopes that it will grow and lift Jesus up for all to see.

LFPC Book Club

For the second semester of this year's book club we will be reading Pierre Nzuah's book, Persist and Pursue: Breaking Barriers to Achieve a Dream.  This amazing book depicts life in Cameroon and the (almost!) insurmountable feat of getting a minimal education as well as the clear path God laid out for Pierre.  Pierre will join us at our meetings to answer questions.  Planned meetings are 7 pm EST on February 1, March 1, and April 5.

Check the home page for the  Zoom link registration information.  

To order the book, go to a search engine and type in the title.  The book is published by Bloated Toe.  It is available at The North Country Story for  $15. Also on Amazon.  We suggest reading a third of the book prior to each meeting.

At this time Liverpool First Presbyterian Church is not accepting online giving.  

Please send your check to 603 Tulip St Liverpool, NY 13088 or consider using bill pay at your financial institution

Are You Ready For an Advent Conspiracy?

The advent season presents so much noise and distractions that compete for our attention. So this advent season the mission committee invites you to conspire against culture and respond to Jesus’ call to welcome the stranger. We are partnering with InterFaith Works of Central New York Center for New Americans to provide items to furnish at least one apartment for a newly arriving refugee family in Syracuse.

Our goal is to collect materials in grouped kits as requested by InterFaith Works, and deliver kits to at least one new arriving refugee family.

In effort to maximize likelihood that  we collect enough items for at least one of each kit, sign up sheets are posted on the mission bulletin board in the sanctuary to sign up to bring items within kits or entire kits themselves as family groups. For those who don’t like to shop we will of course collect offering $ designated for ‘Advent Conspiracy’ on advent Sundays starting November 27. The donation $ will go to purchase items needed to round out full completed kits. We are asking everyone to bring items for the kits to the Hanging of the Greens event on Sunday December 4th. From there we will inventory all kits and determine what needs to be purchased to fill out material for at least one of each kit.

Peacemaking at LFPC

“You’re blessed when you can show people how to cooperate instead of compete or fight. That’s when you discover who you really are, and your place in God’s family." (Matthew 5:9, The Message) Blessed are the peacemakers they will be called children of God. The focus of LFPCs Mission committee is to help make people's lives more peace-filled.

This summer you helped peace grow by sponsoring a community picnic where urban citizens and Syracuse police could gather and form common bonds. The six shallow wells you funded will bring peace to people in Zambia by making water more readily available for everyone. (See the message above from the Melissa and Charles Johnson the Presbyterian co-workers in Zambia) When basic needs are shared equitably lives are more secure...that's peace!

In our Advent Conspiracy we are going to deliver an "apartment in a box" for a newly arrived refugee family. (Much, much more on this later!!). Can you imagine how much more at ease, secure, hopeful, and whole that family will be with an apartment ready-to-go? That's peace-making!!

Around World Communion Sunday we have received special gifts for the PCUSA Peacemaking and Global Witness offering. Because of the incredible work you've already done supporting our sister Presbyterian church in Zambia and the incredible goal we've given for ourselves in this apartment we are encouraging the congregation to focus any special giving this fall on our Advent Conspiracy goals.

LFPC, we call YOU, "children of God"!

Grace...and Peace,

LFPC Mission Committee
