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.

Today we see Jesus making His case, and it's a strong one. He is stating, without any doubt, that the life style of those who follow Him will be a tough challenge. He assures us that His Baptism will be one of Fire.....Fire can destroy and it can also warm and comfort...I guess He's telling us to choose which way we will receive it.....Hmmm Come & See this week how Jesus can truly be a trend setter....but His trend, is for....eternity. When you realize that, you will know what is and isn't important. Check it out this week!
Peace & Blessings

As Natalie and I celebrate our 25th year of commitment to each other, we are both so grateful for the love and kindness you have shown us. As we spend time away together, we continue to remember the goodness of God and the incredible power of love. May our Church continue to rely on His Love to be bold in our proclamation to all...to Come & See the Good News of Jesus alive!
How do we judge what is important and what is not...At times it can be.difficult...Today the Lord makes it clear what is important...YOU...That's right you are important to Him. Now the question for meditation this week...how important is He to you?
This week let us all Come & See how much God does love us...He is asking for a relationship with us...Do we dare....I say YES LORD...what about you?
