BUFFALO’S OLDEST CHURCH TO CELEBRATE BICENTENNIAL

On Sunday, May 20, 2012, First Presbyterian Church of Buffalo will mark the 200th anniversary of its founding. Formed in 1812 with just ten members, when Buffalo was no more than a frontier, First Presbyterian Church is the city’s oldest congregation.

There will be a jubilee worship service at 11:00 AM in the church’s Sanctuary on Symphony Circle to commemorate the occasion. The service will feature bag pipes and organ music. A gala reception will follow. The event is open to the community.

First Presbyterian Church is part of the Presbyterian Church (USA) and the Presbytery of Western New York. The congregation consists of approximately 300 members. The church’s architecturally significant building on Symphony Circle features Tiffany-designed stained glass windows, two impressive pipe organs, and a 168-foot tall tower which stands as a beacon of hope on the west side of the city.

For more information please call 884-7250, ext. 11.
