The historic First Presbyterian Church in Hudson, NY, established in 1837, needs a facelift! Well, it actually needs a roof lift. So, we are hosting a Saints and Sinners Social, on June 26, 2021, from 4-6pm, to raise funds for a new roof.
For more than a century, this church has been a beacon to parishioners and community members alike. Now it needs our help. The church and supporters have embarked on a capital campaign to restore this historic structure, prioritizing replacing the 100-year-old roof.
The church has served as a community and social center, and today it houses the Greater Hudson Promise Neighborhood and our local radio station WGXC. It also serves as a center for arts and cultural events.
The First Presbyterian Church has been a pioneer for LGBTQ acceptance and celebration in church. FPC has welcomed our LGBTQ neighbors unconditionally. FPC was the first church in Hudson to officiate (ecclesiastical) same-sex marriages in the 1970s under the pastoral leadership of the Rev. Bob Criswell. In addition, Rev. Kathryn Beilke was the first woman clergy to officiate a same-sex marriage in a Hudson church. This legacy as an accepting community space must be preserved.
The June 26 event will feature bubbles and nibbles as well as special guests like local Hudson Valley-based drag performers, all part of a tantalizing group called Haus of Peculiar.
Are you a saint or a sinner or devil may care? Tell us with your festive costume! We’ll see you there.
