Because He is We are...
"Yesterday, Today and Forever"
The First Congregational Church of Bay Shore was established in 1853. The present sanctuary was built in 1891 by ship's carpenters and is listed in the National Register of Historical Places. You can expect a warm welcome at 10:00 am Sunday worship services. Holy communion is celebrated on the first Sunday each month, and is open to everyone. After services, all are invited to coffee hour, an opportunity for fellowship.
Our beautiful sanctuary features dramatic, inverted crossed hulls of ships, 29 breathtaking stained glass windows, and a 113-year old Orman Organ. The sanctuary is frequently adorned with colors that represent the seasons of the Christian calendar. Sunday School begins at 10:30 am and is open to children from pre-K through the 12th grade.
Join us to commemorate the foot washing and last supper Jesus shared with his disciples before his crucifixion. All are welcome!
All are welcome as we proclaim, “Christ Is Risen” through word and music. Brunch will be served following worship in Fellowship Hall. Join us!
“Where sin abounds...GRACE abounds more"...Paul tells the Roman Church that Grace is a powerful gift. A gift given to us all...freely...as a result of our Lord's death and resurrection...Awesome... GOOD News...We are the recipients of the greatest gift...the gift of GRACE.
Today our first reading from Paul is showing us that our allegiance is to Jesus. He warns us about being too worldly and expecting to much in this world. Our Gospel tells us to surround ourselves with people that will bring us to a place of growth through Grace.
Lent is a time of year that all Christians pause to reflect on the goodness of our Lord. The sacrifice He endured, the suffering and death He took on for us; and the ultimate victory he empowers us with.
