We are a loving congregation and welcoming to all persons. We are both United Methodists and Presbyterians (PCUSA), the result of a merger in 1951 of the two churches in Jamesville. We think of ourselves as the Christian church of, and for, the community, embracing all Christ followers who wish to share the love of God!
We are also happy to welcome the River of Joy Baptist Church to our church home. They are a Korean congregation who recently celebrated their 20th year anniversary and worship in our sanctuary at 12:30 each Sunday.
Our Pastor Nominating Commitee is in the process of searching for a permanent pastor.
We were recently offered the opportunity to secure a bridge pastor while we continue our search. We are delighted to announce that the Rev. Karen Chamis, has agreed to serve us part-time!
We also continue to enjoy a delightful assortment of inspirational guest worship leaders. Please join us, either in person, or online at our Facebook Live services!

News & Events
In this Season of Giving, your church council invites you to join in as we focus on collecting gifts for our local Young Life group. Young Life’s mission is “to introduce adolescents to Jesus Christ and help them grow in their faith.” Members of our congregation have had a long history with this organization and the council felt it was appropriate to support these energetic and dedicated councilors and teens. Each chapter is self-funded, and there is a need for such basics as gas and snacks, as well as contributions to their annual budget and outreach trip to El Salvador. We invite you to come hear them share their stories during our Advent worship services.
There will be a giving tree in the gathering room with gift card suggestions such as
Gas ~ Grocery Stores ~ Fast Food Restaurants ~ Cash ~ Coffee Shops ~ Pizzerias
Gifts will be collected on Sundays, or may be slid under the office door at other times.
Sunday, 12/10 at 6:30 the CNY Flute Choir will hold their annual FREE holiday concert at our church. The choir rehearses on Tuesday evenings in our sanctuary.
