Community Outreach

Identity Statement:

"We are a church family seeking personal and spiritual growth through praying, experiencing worship, building relationships and serving in mission, locally and globally."

Community Outreach

The First Presbyterian Church of Ontario Center, NY invites you to walk with us on the path that leads to the center of God's love. On this path, we hope you will find connections to deepen your experience of God.

We hope you will come to know Jesus, in a personal relationship that brings companionship, healing, and salvation.

We hope you will catch the Spirit that is a breath of fresh air for a tired old world.

AA - Alcoholics Anonymous

The Ontario AA group meets every Thursday evening, 8:00 p.m in the lower level of the church building.  All who are seeking support and encouragement in recovery from addiction to alcohol or drugs, are welcome to attend.

P.I.N.S. Counseling

In partnership with the Wayne Central School District and Catholic Family Center, we make space available to individuals and families who have been identified for counseling through the “Persons In Need Of Supervision” program.   By offering space locally, it is possible for families to receive the help they need without traveling to access Wayne County services, located in Lyons.

Quilting Mission Project- In 2017, we have made 15 beautiful baby quilts for those affected by Hurricane Harvey.  Completed quilt donations will be made through the Presbyterian Disaster Assistance (PDA) and Red Cross.   

The Garden Project

In 2017, the potatoes were  planted and harvested!  The potatoes were used for our Shared Table community free dinners. 

In 2016, we planted potatoes and summer squash.  We harvested potatoes again but the hungry woodchuck enjoyed the squash.

In 2015, we tilled ground for a potato garden.  We planted 92 pounds of potatoes and harvested 350 pounds!  Thanks to the Spud Team, we had 100 pounds for the October ham dinner, a large donation for the Ontario Food Pantry, some for the Penfield Food Pantry, and enough left for a Potato Bash in November. Thanks to our neighbor Tom for his help! 

Planting in action!
