      St. Mary’s no longer serves meals on a regular basis. There is a food pantry on Monday evening. Call or stop by the church office Monday – Friday 10 AM to 2 PM for more information about what is available. God Bless.

    Hallo dear fellow christians,

    How do you do?
    I heared that your town is celebrating it’s 400 years of existence.I also read in my dutch newspaper that there was not even one word said about the sufferings of the black slaves in history.

    I feel deeply ashamed of what our forelders did to the peoples of this earth.We can never make that up,neither to them nor to their children.

    I therefor would like to ask you to pray to the Lord to forgive us our sins against them.

    And I would wish your church all the best.
    May the Good Lord who gaides us all give us His blessings,

    Bye

    A school (Four Winds) I used to attend, stayed several nights at a building owned by the church in exchange for working at a soup kitchen. Working at the kitchen changed my view of what NY is really like in someplace’s, and showed me the extremely amazing community around the area of St. Marys. So I was wondering if St. Marys ever lets groups lodge in their buildings in exchange for volunteering(Food Pantry help, Cleaning,Cooking etc.)

      Occasionally youth groups stay a night or two at the church. Contact Earl Kooperkamp, the Rector, at the church office, if you have a particular idea in mind. We look forward to speaking with you!

    This is Hannah Bevills, Editor for Christian.com which is a social network made specifically for Christians, by Christians, to directly fulfill Christian’s needs. We embarked on this endeavor to offer the ENTIRE christian community an outlet to join together as one (no matter denomination) and better spread the good word of Christianity. Christian.com has many great features aside from the obvious like christian TV, prayer request or even find a church/receive advice. We have emailed you because we have interest in collaborating with you and your blog to help us spread the good word. I look forward to an email regarding the matter, Thanks!

    God Bless
