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.

Today our Gospel relates the story of a grateful servant who received healing from Jesus. Jesus asked Him a question...not a question of the servants healing, but a question of why the nine others healed at the same time did not return to thank Him. Hmmm are we our brothers keeper? should the servant have told the others to come with him to thank Jesus?...good question.
How do we spread the Gospel...How do we share our faith...maybe this week tell your friends to Come & see the goodness of the Lord in the ordinary..You will be doubly blessed! ... and so will they!
Blessings to you,
Our Gospel today reminds us that our faith is like a seed. e all have a measure of faith, it's up to us to plant it, fertilize it, water it....each day. We have the power to overcome anything. We just need to realize that when we are in Christ....and we abide in Him...all things are possible!
This week, Come & See....plant your seed...and watch it grow!
Peace & Blessings
As I celebrate the football Giants win today, I am so excited about the rookie quarterback. I guess that's how Our Lord gets excited about us. There are many things in life that are new to us, a new day....a new job...whatever it is...know that the Lord is cheering us on. He comes to us in many different disguises...do we see Him....better yet, do we want to see Him...or even look for Him.
This week let us "Come & See" how Our Lord is present to us in so many ways...If we do...we will always know...we are never alone!
