For over one hundred years Elmwood Presbyterian Church has provided stability and hope in a constantly changing and challenging neighborhood on the south side of the City of Syracuse.
Our Sunday services are held at 11:00 a.m. with Rev. Shirley Myers preaching and leading worship. Sunday school for children meets at 9:45 a.m. We have nursery care for small children and also provide aids for the hearing impaired. Our service is traditional and family orientated.
Our Vision Statement reads....”On the corner where faith and life come together we open our hearts and hands to care for all of God's people....” and the Elmwood congregation lives up to that statement. We have a food pantry and clothes rooms for the neighborhood. The pantry is open every Wednesday and Thursday from 10:00 to 1:00 p.m. We also have a clothing room that caters to women in the workplace. This service is open by appointment and appointments can be made by calling 315-251-1151. Another mission is our Elmwood Quilters. This group meets every Wednesday from 1 - 3 p.m. We welcome anyone from the novice to the experienced quilter. A bible study meets every Tuesday from 10:30 a.m. to 12 noon. Led by Rev. Shirley Myers we are currently studying "The Gift of Years" by Joan Chittister.
Our church home hosts two additional congregations in this building. A Spanish-speaking Seventh Day Adventist Church meets every Saturday, and the African-American congregation "Liberty Church" meets Sundays at 12:30 p.m.
We are a welcoming community and extend an invitation to you to feel free to call the church at 315-4478-0915 for more information or come and visit us. You can also reach us by E-mail at Elmwoodpres@aol.com.
