Our

vision

We are a vibrant community church at the crossroads of our modern changing world.  As a congregation from varied backgrounds, we work and worship cooperatively to bring others and ourselves closer to God. Through the spirit of Christ we are connected to our worldwide church family by stewardship, commitment, mission outreach, and educational opportunities.

Pictured above: Members and friends of the congregation gathered in September, 2015, to break ground for the construction of our new Fellowship Hall.

statement of inclusivity

Convinced of God’s Grace, we affirm that there can be no exclusiveness in the body of Christ. We welcome all regardless of race, ethnic heritage, national origin, age, gender, marital status, sexual orientation, or socioeconomic standing; and we encourage the full participation of all in the life of our congregation.

In-Person Worship

Every week a committee of Session is meeting to evaluate, and if need be, adjust our policy.

We have suspended in-person worship participation on Sunday morning.  In response to rising Covid numbers and the emergence of a more transmittable strain in the state, the task forces assigned by Session to monitor our reopening has made this decision.  We do not make it lightly, but believe that it is the faithful and prudent thing to do in this time and place.  For the time being we are going back to Staff only providing a live stream service Sunday Mornings at 10 AM.  The situation will be monitored weekly and we hope to return to allowing in person worship soon. Our action is not mandated by the State, but it is, the task force believes, the faithful thing to do. Hopefully we will be able to open up more in compliance with New York State and in compliance with our prudent judgment as we move through the months ahead. If you have any questions feel free to call the church and ask. 

Our congregation has many things to say about happenings in the life of our church. The community blog is a place to find out what we are up to and how the Spirit is moving among us! Here are some of our recent articles:

Gail Webster House

FPUP Church provides food for evening meals for between 80 and 110 adults on the fourth Wednesday of every month in Poughkeepsie for the Gail Webster House. The clients have been housed at a larger site since the spring.  Transitional housing is still taking place at the previous facility. If you would like to help with this Mission project - which is more important than even - please contact the church office (452-0684) or any member of the Mission Committee. 

 

Another way to support Freedom Plains United Presbyterian Church's commitment to provide a monthly meal for the Homeless Shelter is to make a monetary donation.  Donate any amount to FPUPC and put "Homeless Shelter Meal" in the "Other" category when giving online or in the memo line if donating by check.  All donation amounts are appreciated. It costs Hudson River Housing $300 for one meal for up to 100 people.  So, 12 $25 donations or 6 $50 donations will provide funds for one evening meal.  We will keep you posted on how donations are going.
