Resurrection has happened and our lives are forever changed for it! This Sunday let us gather knowing that, like Mary Magdalene (Jn 20:16), Jesus is calling to each of us by name. He declares, "I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me-- just as my Father knows me and I know the Father-- and I lay down my life for the sheep." May we each be reminded that God loves us. And may our gatherings on Sunday be a powerful embodiment of the love of God for every attender.

Happy Resurrection Sunday! Happy Easter to you all!
Olivia and Dustin (Drew and Ethan)

It is coming quickly! We begin on Sunday, April 24, with an ordination service. It will begin at 6PM and all are invited to attend or view online (see info below). Following the service, where we recognize two ordinands, two retiring ministers and the newly districted licensed, we will have a reception and fellowship time. If you would like to bring cards for our ordinands and retirees then here are their names:

  • Ordinands: Carey Dunlop and Sandra Hanson
  • Retiring Ministers: Tom & Shari Allston and Luis & Maria Montalvo
Livestream (for Sunday night and Monday) will be at the Upstate NY Facebook page:

We mourn the passing of Mrs. Louise Cramer, wife of retired pastor Rev. John S. Cramer, Sr., who went to be with the Lord on Saturday, April 15th. She and her husband served churches on the Upstate NY district in Plattsburgh, Brooktondale, Buffalo, Lowville, Olean, and Syracuse as well as on the New England and Mid-Atlantic districts. 
We celebrate that she is with the Lord and look forward to the family reunion that awaits us, but we also ask for you to be praying for the family in this time.
