Start your mornings in Lent with these energizing weekly prayer writing sessions. This group in intended to be a quiet time to start your day with God. Lenten prayers and writing prompts will be shared for each session, the goal being that each person writes their own prayers for the day. Don’t be intimidated! Participants are not asked to share their work; all are welcome for this time of prayer.

This series is virtual, zoom information can be found in our First Matters newsletter. For more information about meeting times and how you can get involved contact Rev. Dr. Barbara Davis at

The Grief Support Group meets monthly and is a guided discussion group for those grieving the loss of a loved one. Together, we explore what it means to live with grief and try to understand more deeply what Christianity has to say about coping in the face of pain and death. By leaning on our faith and one another, we can learn so much about ourselves through the journey of grief. If you are interested in attending or learning more, contact Hannah Faye Allred at

Many are feeling weary, lonely and anxious in this time of pandemic and unrest in our country. This can leave us emotionally, physically and spiritually depleted. Join Barbara for this series of monthly conversations about how prayer and hope can renew our spirits and build resilience, bringing new energy to our daily lives. This month’s gathering will focus on the spiritual challenges of anger. To learn more, contact The Rev. Dr. Barbara Davis at

Presbyterian Senior Services was founded in 1962 to serve the aging population within the Presbyterian Church community. It is now a flourishing non-profit that aims to strengthen the capacity of older New Yorkers, their families, and communities to thrive by offering resources, events, and seminars, for aging adults. First Church is delighted to be a partner with PSS in bringing these many opportunities to our members. Be sure to check our calendar to register for the latest PSS events hosted here at First Church, either virtually or in our building.
