We have two services of worship on Christmas Eve, at 7:00 and 11:00. Both are rich with congregational and choral music, scripture readings, and a homily by our pastor. A high school brass duo will play during the earlier service, and the Curt Swike Trombone Quartet will play at the latter service. In both services we sing "Silent Night" by candlelight. Everyone is welcome.

Welcome to our Congregation
The White Plains Presbyterian Church is a historic, dynamic, and growing congregation. As a community of faith, our deepest commitment is to make the Christian faith engaging and relevant.
We worship each Sunday at 10:00am. In worship we blend different musical styles, share in an inclusive liturgy and listen for God's Word through thought-provoking, socially-aware preaching. We celebrate Holy Communion the first Sunday of every month. You will find a warm welcome within our multi-cultural congregation both within worship and at the coffee hour which follows.
We welcome and celebrate the presence of children in worship. Following song, prayer and a message for children, we offer church school classes from 10:15 - 11:15 for youngsters through the seventh grade. Additionally, we have an active and growing Youth Program for adolescents.
From Monday to Friday, the White Plains Presbyterian Church is always busy. Ongoing programs include our Nursery School, Spanish classes, Bible studies, Choir rehearsals, prayer luncheons, and an array of support and recovery groups.
We are an Earth Care / Green Faith Congregation
The White Plains Presbyterian has been certified as a PC(USA) Earth Care Congregation
through our enrollment in the Green Faith Program
. To become an Earth Care Congregation, we affirmed the Earth Care Pledge to integrate environmental practices and thinking into all facets of our church life. We have also completed projects and activities in the fields of worship, education, facilities, and outreach. We have done this because we feel called to be stewards of Godís creation and recognize environmental stewardship as an integral part of a sustainable future.
This year marks our tri-centennial year of mission and ministry (1714 - 2014). Even as we celebrate our 300 years of nurturing faith in this city, we commit ourselves to the future God is even now preparing.
Please plan to worship, or visit, with us some time soon. We are located at 39 North Broadway, two blocks north of Main Street in downtown White Plains.
As a congregation of the Presbyterian Church (USA), the White Plains Presbyterian Church is a member of the Hudson River Presbytery and the Synod of the Northeast.
