TED Talk with Pastor Colin

You are invited to TED Talks with Pastor Colin.

If you are not familiar with TED Conferences/Talks, they are gatherings of creators, thinkers, artists, medical professionals, scientists, sociologists etc. who share “ideas worth spreading”. These talks are 10-20 min long and are collected in video form for all the world to see. We have curated 6 wonderful talks that inform, intrigue, and begin great conversations.

Please join these adult education opportunities hosted by Pastor Colin. You can come to any one or all of them. Each session will include watching the video talk together and engaging in conversation guided by Pastor Colin. Each session will be one hour long and there is no need to prepare in advance. Just come with an open heart and willing spirit.

The TED Talks will be offered every other Thursday evening at 7:00 beginning April 15.  You can sign up for this opportunity by contacting the church office at 315-789-1343 or email us at info@pcgny.org

Recent Scam Text Messages

Recently we have been made aware of a scam text message being sent to some members of the PCG church community supposedly on behalf of a previous staff member. This text is asking for gift cards to be purchased.  If you receive an unsolicited email or text message requesting that you send money by purchasing gift cards, it is most probably a scam. Please know that no staff member will reach out to you in this way to request donations.
