About First Church

The calling and legacy of First Presbyterian Church in Jamaica is to welcome all God’s children and transform lives. Organized in 1662, First Church is the oldest continuously serving Presbyterian congregation in the United States. For more than 350 years, we’ve served at the heart of Jamaica, Queens and flourished as a vibrant multi-cultural congregation of all ages, with congregants from over 35 birth nations. We welcome you to join a safe and supportive community of believers who will help you build meaningful relationships in our church family, and empower you to grow in faith through the transforming power of Jesus.
