Memorials and History Committee (Meets monthly)
This committee honors the memory of those who have contributed to Christ’s mission in the world and keeps a permanent record of memorial gifts. In addition, it thanks donors, transmits gift acknowledgments to the family of the deceased, and recommends and implements proper use of memorial funds. Our beautiful new memorial garden is just one example of the work of the Memorials and History Committee.
Contact Beth Reiners (315) 789-3761 or firstname.lastname@example.org

Social Issue Study: Prison Nation
We are embarking on a six-part study of the prison system in the US, exploring the causes and consequences of the very high incarceration rate and how as Christians we should respond to this. According to the World Prison Population List, 11th edition, the US has the second highest incarceration rate in the world (699 adult prisoners per 100,000 adult population) behind only the Seychelles, well ahead of Russia and China, and over eight times the median level for countries in Western Europe. Come join us as we learn why this is the case and what it means for us as a society and as a church.
