Church Finances...
This is a note to let you know the heat in the sanctuary has been turned off. The heat in pierce hall is lowered except for the food pantry time. We are attempting to hold the line on things where we can. Our treasurer is able to continue to pay bills for the church online - electric, phone, insurance, heat, maintenance, our apportionments to Presbytery and United Methodist.

Some folks are asking about the weekly offering. If you feel led to send your offering, put your check in your offering envelope if you have one and mail your check to: Stephentown Federated Church Attn:Treasurer, P.O. Box 10, Stephentown, NY. 12168.

News for Our Church Community June 24, 2020

 

The General Committee of the Stephentown Federated Church met on June 23rd to reassess the opening of our church. It was unanimously agreed to keep our online services going and reassess our opening of the church again at the end of August.

Therefore, our church will remain closed to in person church services until September 1, 2020. This decision was made after evaluating current conditions. This has been a most difficult decision to make as we all would prefer to be together in our church. Our online service each week allows you to sing the hymns and say verbal responses together. Currently these are not allowed in the church under current guidelines. Also, having coffee and sharing of food is strongly discouraged by both denominations. We are being encouraged by both denominations to not rush opening the church based on emotions versus facts.

General Committee is working on getting all current guidelines together to look at how we can safely open and hold services in the future.

Please join other members of the church community for Coffee Hour hosted by Arlene Longo:

if you are interested in the link on Zoom to join on Sunday mornings at 10:30am. This is your opportunity to have face to face time with each other.

In Closing, the General Committee asks for your prayers as we continue to make these difficult decisions for the health and well being of our church community. Please know that you are all in our Prayers and should you need assistance or prayers for any reason, please contact us at 518-733-5813. We will get back to you as soon as we can.

God Bless each of you this day!

The last three years we have been blessed to have a guest minister each Sunday. The process of finding a new minister to lead our congregation has been slow. We have, however, been very fortunate and blessed to have several ministers that fill the pulpit on a regular basis.

The Search Committee will continue to look for a new Pastor through the Presbyterian part of our Federation. The Worship team continues to plan the weekly special services and works with each of the guest ministers.

The Stephentown Federated Church is a community seeking to glorify God through the use of God-given talents and gifts. As Christians, it is our mission to serve others.
