  • Moving on up Challenge!

    Are you ready for the “Moving On Up” challenge?!!

    Why move on up you ask. . .

    • Potential new guests will check out our on-line worship before visiting a live service. Those on-line guests see a weekly average on 4-5 people in our pews. They don’t get to see our vibrant congregation of Jesus followers because you are all hiding in the back!
    • New guests for our live services feel more comfortable sliding into a back pew “un-noticed”. We don’t currently leave any space for guests to slide in the back.


    Here’s how the challenge works:

    • You will find paper and pens in each pew. Green for kids under 16/White for adults.
    • Place your name on a piece of paper for each pew that you move up! If you move three pews, fill out three slips. If you move one pew, fill out one slip.
    • Place your slips in the hat before coffee hour starts.
    • We will draw an adult and a kid challenge winner each week during coffee hour!
    • Prizes may include chocolate!
  • Children's Day!

    June 18 is Children’s Day when the kids will surprise us with something special as a result of their learning in Sunday School. This marks the end of normal Sunday School sessions until Sept. 10.

  • Celebrate our Seniors!

    On June 18, we will also be celebrating our 2023 Graduates, Kylie Griffin and Natalie Specht, during worship. Please plan to be present that day to celebrate all of our young people.

  • Shepherds

    The Shepherds Group in our church continues to watch over “our” flock. We’re here for you. We pray for you, and we care about each and everyone of you. If you ever need help in any way let the pastor or Donna Baker know. Thank you for considering this worthwhile mission!

  • Hearing Assistance

    Hearing Assist Devices are available. If you’re in need of one, please see the AV Operator in the back of the church.

  • Wanted: worship team support!

    Do YOU feel called to help in Worship? We’d love to have you help out in the following positions: Greeter, Candle Bearer, Lector. Please see Pastor Michele or Debbie Barnes if you would like to learn more about these positions.

  • Worship Team Opportunity

    Are you interested in technology and wanting to serve God and his church? If so, we have need to train a few more individuals to run our sound and video board during worship. This has become a very important ministry but we need additional disciples who are willing to serve in this way. Serving is on a rotation basis with a calendar to confirm availability, etc. Please, won’t you consider volunteering?

  • Night with the Rumble Ponies

    The annual United Methodist night at the Rumble Ponies baseball tickets are now available. The date is June 15 with the first pitch at 6:35pm. There are 25 tickets available at $11 each, first come first served. See David Barnes for cost and any other questions. 

  • Sky Lake Scholorships

    On Wednesday, May Starting today, all monies collected through our bottle and can drive will be deposited in support of our SkyLake Camperships once again. Please remember to bring your bottle and cans that are redeemable according to NY State law. 

  • Church Bottle Drive

    Thanks to all who contribute to the bottle bin in the church parking lot. Those bottles and cans that are marked as a five cent returnable in New York, produce an income for various groups in the church, such as the trustees or the youth going to Sky Lake Camp in the summer. Pictured below are bottles that DO NOT have this label. They are recyclable but they are not five cent returnable items. Please do not put them in the bottle bin. Our last trip to the redemption center netted us $144, which was  one truck full.  Not bad for an hours time, plus travel.
