We hope you are all staying well and safe. For the immediate future, things are as they have been – but we are hopeful for better news to come. We wanted to keep you updated on several fronts.

  1. Of course, church services, Sunday School, Nursery School, etc. continue to be suspended. However we remind you that we offer a live stream Sunday service at 10am, and also a Wednesday evening devotional time – called “Meeting at the Well” at 7:30pm, until we can gather again. This live stream has seemed to work well. So far over 1200 views have taken places of these services. A reminder that you can watch them live, or later as a video, at our Facebook page: And please remember you do not need to be on Facebook, or have an account, to watch. Our page is public and anyone can see it.
  2. We continue to staff the church administrative functions, both here and remotely. If you need us you can call, or email. We will get back to you.
  3. A new way to give or donate through our website , will be up and running very shortly. You can safely make your offering through this means if you would like. Of course mailing a check would also work. Thank you for continuing to support your church through your Faith Commitments in this challenging time.
  4. Throughout this time, we are seeking to find ways to remain connected and to check in with each other. If you would like to be contacted by our Congregational Life Team, or perhaps be one of the contactors, please email Mary Jane Phelan ( ) to let her know.
  5. A new edition of our newsletter, The Clarion, is being prepared. When it is completed copies will be mailed you – or, when its up, you will be able to read it on our website.
  6. A reminder of our live call in prayer time that Gail Orser has coordinated with Linda Chase through our Prayer Chain. One has occurred already. If you are on the prayer chain you received an email from Gail about the details. If you are not on the prayer chain but would like to join in, please let me know and I will have Linda or Gail be in touch. Our prayers in these days are very important.
  7. We continue to do what we are called to do as a church. Please remember I am available for pastoral care if you need me. Email me at with a phone number and I will get back to you. I am reaching out as I am able.             We also continue with some of our outreach efforts. Although we can’t serve our usual monthly meal at the “Lunch Box” soup kitchen in Poughkeepsie, many of us are making sandwiches which we will deliver tomorrow.

Until our next email please keep safe and keep the faith!

A reminder that we will be offering a Wednesday Evening devotional time we are calling “Meeting at the Well”, at 7:30pm beginning tomorrow March 25, and continuing each Wednesday for the duration. Like our Sunday morning worship live stream it will on FaceBook Live. Another reminder, anyone can view this. You do not have to have a Facebook Account in order to watch. Just go to our page . The page is public, and so it is accessible to anyone. Just scroll past and login/register info and you will find us.

We expect this to be about a 15 minute time of simple prayer and reflection. We pray it might be another way for us to gather our hearts, hear God’s word and gain some peace and strength in these days.

I hope all of you are doing well and staying healthy.


Rev. Mark+




A church that welcomes you, no matter where you are on your journey of faith-

A church that loves its history, yet welcomes new ideas and new people-

A church that celebrates that we all are created by God, called into a relationship with Jesus Christ and guided by the Holy Spirit in our life and ministry-

A church which rejoices in the gifts and blessings God gives us, and seeks to share them with others.

Mission Trip

The Christ Church Outreach Team is ‘reaching out’ a bit farther this summer and will be taking a group of volunteers to NJ to stay for five days (August 10-14) and help rebuild houses with SBP, a well-regarded organization with which we have worked before in New Orleans. We can accommodate 10 people. There is a sign-up sheet for those interested on the bulletin board. The commitment needs to be soon and firm so please ask MJ Phelan your questions (
