Mission Statement
Adopted 2009

Gates Presbyterian Church is a diverse congregation of about 600 Christians located in a western suburb of Rochester, New York. Established in 1828, we support the mission of the Presbytery of Genesee Valley and the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). Our faith is strengthened by worship services, which include traditional and non-traditional styles. We value the spiritual wisdom of all generations.

Empowered by the Holy Spirit, we continue to learn and actively teach by the teachings of Jesus Christ. We reflect the love of God by evoking positive change for a better life for people in our local, regional, and worldwide communities.

Upcoming Events

2014 Wheel-A-Thon

Oct 5th
12:30PM - 7:00PM

Gates Presbyterian Folks: Help youth, support mission, enjoy fall, and have fun while doing it! The Wheel-A-Thon is for everyone!
The youth would love to have you ride with them on the Wheel-A-Thon.

A very manageable 20 mile bike ride on the beautiful Erie Canal path. All ages are invited (children under 12 must ride with an adult).
Meet at Henpeck Park at 12:30. Enjoy a picnic at Perinton Park at the end of the ride. There are many stops along the way to rest and snack.

Minimum pledge requirement: $10.00.
BUT ……there are other ways to help our youth as well:
- Make a pledge (youth will be collecting pledges starting mid-Sept) and/or
- Staff a rest stop and/or
- Supply fruit and/or juice for rest stops.
This fund raiser supports youth summer mission projects. It helps to keep the cost per person manageable for families.
