The First Presbyterian Church of Far Rockaway, formerly known as the Russell Sage Memorial Church, is a historic Presbyterian church located in the Far Rockaway neighborhood of Queens, New York.

The church was built between 1908 and 1910 and is a Neo-Gothic style building laid out in a traditional cruciform plan. It is constructed of brick with concrete trim and a steeply sloping slate covered roof. Connected to the church are a parish hall and manse. The surrounding landscape is also a contributing element and it was designed by the Olmsted Brothers.

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1986.
