Our Church Family
We are people of God who are proud to be a part of the rich tradition of worship, fellowship, and
service at the Springs Church that has happened at the head of the Accabonac Harbor since 1882.
We are proud of our Food Pantry serving our neighbors in need every Wednesday,
year-round since 1992.

Up-Island, the City, Upstate, or even farther away (the pastor comes from Virginia!) In any event, we hope
and pray that you meet someone who greets you and makes you feel welcome.

How to Join the Springs ChurchThe Springs Community
Presbyterian Church is a community of faith with Jesus Christ at the center. The Springs Church is her
people who have committed their lives to Christ, giving and sharing of themselves to the life and ministry of the church –
The Body of Christ.
that membership is through faith in Jesus Christ and acceptance of his Lordship in all of life. Some have
attended Springs Church with their families, for all their life. Some come as visitors
or guests. In any case, people enter into active church membership by;
Profession of faith
Reaffirmation of faith
Transfer from another church
After acknowledging a calling or invitation to the life and ministry of the Springs Church, a prospective
member will meet with the Pastor and Elders to be received as a member. New members will be introduced
to the congregation during worship.
There are three questions that are asked of those joining the Springs Church.
1. Do you trust in Jesus Christ and accept him as your Lord and Savior?
2. Trusting in the gracious mercy of God, do you renounce the ways of sin and the power of evil in the world?
3. Will you be Christ’s faithful disciple, obeying his word and showing his love?
The Springs Presbyterian Food Pantry continues to
thrive with the help of many volunteers and contributions from friends and many of the East Hampton community. Through this
help, we can serve many neighbors in need. Because we are open every Wednesday and don't take a summer break we have packed
and distributed over 2000 bags of food. Many people count on us to provide a little extra for their tables in the lean
times. We have made friends and enjoy seeing children come in and feel comfortable in our "Littler Church the Could."
It is a very rewarding mission to the community.
There are many
people who contribute, the local farms the season, restaurants that close for the winter, the Jewish Center, Boy Scouts, Girl
Scouts, Postal Service and local organizations and individuals. Springs School helps with Thanksgiving and Toys for Tots distribution.
One of our neighbors, Mary, drops by every Wednesday without fail with a bag of food to add to our shelves, it's nice
to be on her schedule, we really appreciate contributions.
We are most fortunate
to have a group of dedicated volunteers to help with the packing, stacking, picking up donated food and distributing food.
The Pantry works because of the team, thanks to you all.
