Worship is our primary activity as a church.  There is an old standard in the church, lex orandi, lex credendi which means that "the law of prayer is the law of faith" or "that which we pray is that which we believe." Our prayer, our worship is the key to understanding what God has revealed for us to accept as true.  Our congregation offers the leadership, organization, presentation of worship experiences, and the physical building space for worship and education in spirituality as our primary service to the general public.  All are welcome to avail themselves to our services of worship.  As always, you are welcome to call the Pastor anytime with your questions about worship @ 607-280-0374.
As Christians we celebrate Hanukkah. Why would a Christian church celebrate Hanukkah, isn't that Jewish?
