More than a year ago, the congregation of the First Presbyterian Church had to vacate the historic building at Warren and Fourth streets because of structural issues with the beams and trusses that support the roof. Now those problems have been corrected, and the church will reopen for its first service on Christmas Eve.

Yesterday the church issued the following invitation on its Facebook page:
Come all ye faithful! Joyful and triumphant! You and your friends, family, and guests are invited to join us for our re-opening Christmas Eve! Lessons and Carols service is at 5 p.m. in the sanctuary at First Presbyterian Church.

  1. Hallelujah indeed! Great news that the beams and trusses are now fixed. I'm a newcomer to Hudson - attended service here one time shortly before the roof problems closed it for repairs. No one's mentioned the other loss to Hudson resulting from these structural issues - something dear to my heart - the deafening silence of the tolling of First Presbyterian's beautiful bell tower which marked the hour for all in earshot to hear. I do hope that the resumption of services on Christmas Eve also means the church's historic bells will once again toll for thee, thou, thine, ye - and Hudson.
