Our Church in Corinth NY

Pastor Stuart in Ashland

I'm so glad you have taken a moment to look at our website. Please feel free to browse through these pages, send me an email, and ask any question you might have about our church. Let me anticipate some of those questions:

"What is this church like?" First Presbyterian is a warm family of faith that invites anyone to come and check us out. We are not stuck on formality. You can come "as you are" or more formal wear. In either case, you will be welcomed.

"What should I expect from the service?" You will hear some wonderful music from our band. We enjoy singing. You will also hear us offering our concerns and praying for one another. The message will be taken right from the Bible and yet it will speak to some things that you are probably dealing with right now. And you can expect a warm greeting afterwards as we have a little coffee and enjoy some conversation.

"What do you believe?" We believe that God loves us deeply. We also believe he calls us to live faithfully. We believe that we are sinners in need of a savior and that jesus died for each of us to find our way back to the Father's side. You can learn quite a bit more by exploring our denominational home's site, The Evangelical Covenant Order of Presbyterians

Please feel free to ask further questions of Pastor Stuart Bond, or to read his bio and also, feel free to join us this Sunday!

Pastor Stephen Clark will become the pastor for First Presbyterian Church

August 3rd, 2019. 

                                                      

Steve Clark grew up as the son of a PC(USA) pastor in Rhode Island. After losing his mom at a young age he faced a crisis of faith, where God met him and out of which Steve sensed the Lord’s call to pastoral ministry, and he has pursued that call ever since, with a heart to know Christ and bring others into the joyous adventure of knowing him.

 Steve graduated from Cedarville University with a Liberal Arts degree in 2016, where he also preached regularly to the student body of 3000 as a student chaplain for two years. Steve began his Master of Divinity degree at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. Throughout seminary Steve has served at his home church with the title of Ministry Intern, developing and leading the student ministries program, and has served on two six-week mission teams to Dubai in the United Arab Emirates. Over these years of preparation, Steve has filled pulpits in Washington, Ohio, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island, while interning at PC(USA) churches in Washington, Florida, and Rhode Island.

He currently is a candidate for ordination with the Covenant Order of Evangelical Presbyterians (ECO) and is hoping to pursue his call into pastoral ministry after he graduates Gordon-Conwell in May 2019.

When not holing up in coffee shops to prepare sermons or write papers, Steve loves hiking any mountains he can get his boots on (including several in the Adirondacks!), playing racquetball and ultimate frisbee, and going on travel adventures in his trusty hand-me-down family minivan affectionately named Moses, which has shepherded him to and from the promised land of the West Coast.
