About Us

Who We Are

We are an authentic, Spirit-filled, mission church. We follow Jesus and preach the Gospel and believe that the Word became flesh and moved into the neighborhood!

Our pastor is Rev. Darlene Kelley.

She graduated Magna Cum Laude from Drew Theological Seminary in 2004. Rumors that she was a bartender in Greenwich Village are all true. She has a husband named, Craig, three stepchildren, two dogs and a cat, and she writes a blog called "Methodist To Her Madness".

She'd love to meet you.

Our pastor is also the Executive Director of The Caring Hands Soup Kitchen and Pantry. We are a mission church. We are United Methodist. We are part of the Catskill Hudson District in the New York Annual Conference of The United Methodist Church.

We don't care what you're wearing, how much money's in your pocket or what you did on Saturday night. We believe God is love, and

everyone is welcome here. Amen.



Kara Szue, Office Manager

You don't have to be in worship to eat lunch, but the pastor

would love it if you were...

Do all the good you can

By all the means you can

In all the ways you can

In all the places you can

At all the times you can

To all the people you can

As long as ever you can.

~John Wesley
