The First Presbyterian Church of Skaneateles is the oldest congregation in the village. It was organized July 20, 1801, by the Rev. Aaron Bascom, who had been sent by the New Hampshire Missionary Association. Originally organized as The Schaneateles Religious Society, this body of faith had three purposes: To be the Court of Equity, judging between one citizen and another in order to find redemption and forgiveness. To provide local public education, in an age before public schools. To listen for persons’ confessions of faith, in order that all might be in communion. Christmas Day 1806, the body was divided by controversy, as the religious Society voted whether to become a Church. A Church meant having a building, an ordained pastor and supporting local and foreign missions, rather than the earlier three purposes. By a vote of 8 to 7 the Schaneateles religious Society became the First Presbyterian Church of Skaneateles, but never forgot our roots in mission service. Find out more here.
