Mission and Outreach

Our church shows our love for Christ and our fellow man in a number of different ways. A significant number of our members are deeply involved in service to Lowville and Lewis County in their professional ministries as health workers, teachers, counselors, public servants, and businesses. They and other members also volunteer many hours to local volunteer organizations and activities.

As a congregation, we initiated the local Stone Soup program and host Stone Soup on the third Thursday of each month. For one week in July, youth & adults from our congregation participate in the Delaware Work Camp, which carries out housing projects for needy families.

Our church shows our concern for our community by hosting various groups to use the church and Andover House for their meetings and gatherings.  If you are in need of a place to host your activity, please contact the church office.  You are welcome to open our 2017 Building Use Form.

In addition we participate in a number of local, national and international missions, which include the following:
