Sunday morning is a very special time. We come together to praise and thank God for all He has done for us. This public gathering is both to witness to the world that we believe that Jesus Christ was here on earth to teach us how to live according to God's loving will and also that we believe that through Jesus' sacrifice we will be reunited with God.
It is important to worship together. The sacraments of baptism and Holy Communion, the sermons, the joyful offerings, the communal prayers and the fellowship help us to feel God's presence in our lives and to grow as Christians. During the week we seriously try to practice what is preached through our conduct: prayers, word and deed.
Our Sunday school meets most Sundays at 10:00AM. We gather in the sanctuary with the congregation to hear a lesson from Pastor James before being dismissed to class.
We have two groups Preschool-2nd grade and 3nd-6th. The younger class learns Bible stories and the elements of worship through interaction play, while the older class has lively discussions about the Bible.

A group of dedicated volunteers meets regularly on the second Saturday of the month 10:00AM to 2:00PM September through June. We are a small group open to the community and are always looking for additional people to join us. Sewing skills are not a requirement – the construction of these quilts requires many other talents. We raise funds when necessary through bake sales and accept contributions of materials as well as monetary gifts.
Over the past several years, we have supplied quilts to numerous organizations and programs: North Shore University Hospital’s Palliative Care Unit and Neonatal Intensive Care Unit in Manhasset, Ronald McDonald House in New Hyde Park and most recently the Northport Veteran’s Administration Medical Center. We wanted to share the note we received from the VAMC:
Thank you so much for the lovely quilts you gave our Veterans this holiday season! They are beautiful and greatly appreciated by our guys. It was incredibly generous of you to share the fruit of so many hours’ labor with us. I assure you that the smiles and joy you have brought the men will last even more hours … indeed years. Many blessings.
