Federated Church reopening June 6, 2021
Good Afternoon Everyone,
The general committee met last Tuesday night to discuss the business of the church and the possible reopening of the church. The first Sunday the church will be open is June 6 at 9:30 a.m. for Sunday morning service. We appreciate the hard work of the Opening committee, headed by Arlene Longo for coming up with our guidelines that general Committee approved.
We hope you will join us using these attached guidelines. If you find that in person worship is not yet for you, we will continue to provide an online service. as best we can. It will be slightly different. Eventually, It will be a video recording of the actual service thanks to Doug Mayen. It will be available as soon as we can get it uploaded. Currently, Chip Winnard from Woods Brothers Music is working with us to upgrade our sound system to make this happen.
The spirit of Christ be with each of you and your families.
We welcome you to our website page.

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.
