Your Legacy Matters Here
Carrying the Light Forward
"Arise, shine; for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD has risen upon you." Isaiah 60:1
For more than 250 years, First Presbyterian Church has been a beacon of light in Albany. Legacy gifts have enabled us to teach our young people about God's love and glory, reach into our communities to provide support where it is needed most, and preach the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Contributions from generations before us have enabled this congregation to be a force for good in the community. Now, as we marvel in the Messiah's light, the saints - those among us, those departed from us, and those worshipping in Christ's universal Church, implore us to carry that light forward to generations yet unknown and missions yet to be fulfilled.
While the needs of our community have evolved over time, the legacy gifts of our ancestors in faith have laid the groundwork for the First Presbyterian Church we know and love today.
We hope that you will prayerfully consider how you can help First Presbyterian carry the light forward for years to come.
