Kid's Jeopardy

Sunday, August 5th at noon

Have you ever wanted to travel to Alaska to see the glaciers and wonderful wildlife?  You don't even have to leave town to get a glimpse of cruising the Inner Passage of South Eastern Alaska by coming to this event. You will see a short slide show (15 to 20 minutes) and then a 25 minute video. Terrie and Chip Gifford will be your hosts and you can ask questions throughout. Afterwards we will make our own sundaes! The presentation, talk and sundaes are completely free.

It's a great way to meet new people and learn something at the same time. There are no strings attached. Nothing is for sale. It's merely folks who want to share the experience with you and your family. If you wish to make a reservation by calling the church at 518-664-4834 or emailing at, that would be nice, but not necessary. We hope to see you there!

We loved Matthew's enactment of "The Powerful Testimony of Peter" on Sunday, August 25th. Tina introduced matthew and he portrayed Peter,  Christ's first listed and ordained apostle.  peter was a human being and had faults. He even denied christ. But his faith carried him through and he indeed became "the fisher of men." Thank you to Tina and Matthew!
