From our Church School Program each Sunday morning, to weekly Sunday worship services offering full child care options, to various adult bible studies and conversational groups, as well as an active youth ministry, Christians of all ages are given a varying array of opportunities for growth, participation and lasting friendships in our church family.  Long recognized for its community outreach, Kingston Presbyterian Church maintains an active involvement in mission support, at both the local and international levels.
