As necessary,new member classes are conducted for those interested in learning more about membership. Those who decide to join then meet with the Session and make a public affirmation of faith during a worship service.
We are a family of Christian believers, a small church of about 80 members. Our church is governed by a Session, made up of seven Elders. We also have a very active Board of Deacons with six members. We are part of the Hudson River Presbytery, the Synod of the Northeast, and The Presbyterian Church USA.
