The question of when we will be gathering together again has been the subject of much prayer and discussion by our church’s leadership. We are asking God for wisdom as we attempt to follow the guidelines of New York State and New York City regarding the timing for reopening our church campus. At the same time, we are making plans and putting protocols in place to ensure your safety and well-being when we are able to meet again. Stay tuned for updates as more information becomes available.  

In the meantime, we hope that you will continue to join us for Tuesday Prayer Onlinebeginning at 7pm; Sunday Worship Online, beginning at 9am; and weekday Devotions Onlinebeginning at 10am. We also invite you to check the Churchwide Announcements on our home page to learn about additional online events for each member of your family.

Who Are We?

Ministry Preparation Course studies are designed to build and equip Christians for godly living through the systematic teaching of the Word of God, so each person may come to know their function as member of Christ's body as they minister to the world.


Ministry Information

Ministry Preparation Courses are open to all, however registration is required to take any class. Registered students are required to complete all 3 nights.
