We are a welcoming and friendly community with a great diversity of people, young and old, native New Yorkers, university students, transplants, and immigrants united by our common faith in Jesus Christ. We believe that we experience God’s love and sustaining presence in our lives in the world, and strive to share that good news with all that we meet.     more ...
