About us

First Presbyterian Church in Socorro is a warm, welcoming, and compassionate church family. In the spirit of Jesus' admonition to bring His message to the world, we endeavor to be a church that reaches out to local and worldwide communities in a caring, inclusive spirit of Christian love. Our Sunday services encourage deep feelings of worship and a deep sense of connection to God and with all the members of God's family throughout the world. We work closely with our minister to foster relationships through visitation, outreach, and worship, and seek to spiritually nourish all who share in our family of faith.

Who we are:
We are fortunate to have a varied congregation. The majority of our members are older adults. Their wisdom, experience, and stability have contributed to the emotional and financial stability of the church. Recently, however, we've been proud to welcome some newer, younger members! Our congregation falls along typical educational/occupational lines. We have professionals (business owners, educators), both white and blue collar workers, and government employees among our members. Socorro is a small university town, and because of this, we have members who work at New Mexico Tech. Formally educated or not, we are an intelligent and perceptive group. Most members in the Socorro church live in the city limits; however, farming and ranching are important elements of our community's economy and we do have members who live outside of town.
