1st Presbyterian Church celebrates 345th year

Jamaica's landmark First Presbyterian Church is celebrating its 345th anniversary:

Despite the community flux, the oldest Presbyterian congregation in the United States has operated under rule of the Dutch, British and United States without interruption. Today, with 570 members – mostly families and some individuals – the church has transformed from merely a religious destination to a community center.

First Presbyterian To Celebrate 345th

Congratulations!

That is a beautiful historic church and I amn glad that it continues to serve the community and hasn't been bulldozed for condos.

Contrast this church to the Presbyterian 'Church' in Astoria.

Sad, sad, sad.
