First Presbyterian Church of Chittenango

Local Outreach

Crafting Together is a stitching ministry designed to serve one another with our hands. Participants include community and church crafters. Some of the participants meet together regularly, while many work independently. Projects support church programs and area service agencies including the Syracuse Rescue Mission, Threads of Love (preemie items) and New Hope Family Services.  Items created include prayer shawls; hats, mittens and scarves for all ages and sizes; preemie to full sized baby hats, booties and blankets; lap robes and afghans.


Our congregation regularly collects food, money, and volunteers to serve those needing food through the Sullivan Food Pantry. Helping our community to solve food insecurity by providing thousands of meals monthly through our community Food Pantry.



We also proudly host Over the Rainbow Christian Pre-School!

The pre-school's goals are:

To provide a Christian Pre-School Program that offers children a safe, nurturing and creative environment to play and learn.


To offer an early childhood program that provides the concrete experiences and active exploration that will enable your child to develop a strong, positive foundation for learning.

Our congregation is also very involved with the local celebration of L.Frank Baum and the Wizard of Oz - called Oz-Stravaganza!
