The question of when we will be gathering together again has been the subject of much prayer and discussion by our church’s leadership. We are asking God for wisdom as we attempt to follow the guidelines of New York State and New York City regarding the timing for reopening our church campus. At the same time, we are making plans and putting protocols in place to ensure your safety and well-being when we are able to meet again. Stay tuned for updates as more information becomes available.  

In the meantime, we hope that you will continue to join us for Tuesday Prayer Onlinebeginning at 7pm; Sunday Worship Online, beginning at 9am; and weekday Devotions Onlinebeginning at 10am. We also invite you to check the Churchwide Announcements on our home page to learn about additional online events for each member of your family.

The Exchange Women's Conference 2019

October 11th — 12th, 2019
Multi-day Event
  • 17 Smith Street, Main Sanctuary

Dear ladies,

The morning after Hurricane Sandy devastated NYC, my family and I walked outside to survey the damage in our neighborhood.  We were shocked to find countless trees all around our home completely toppled over.  Trees that appeared to be immovable were not able to weather a storm of such magnitude, and the results were devastating.  If you do any research on what causes a tree to fall when battered by strong winds and rain, the answer almost always lies in the condition of its roots.  Weak, shallow or unhealthy roots make any tree vulnerable to the storms it must endure.  The longevity of a tree is found in its roots; and so it is with our own lives.  Whether it’s the latest headlines in our news or our own personal struggles, life is filled with storms.  Our ability to endure these storms always lies in the spiritual roots each of us has developed in our relationship with Jesus.  Our spiritual roots will always determine our ability to overcome the challenges of life.

This October 11th and 12th, we invite you to come and allow your roots to grow deeper in Jesus at The Exchange Women’s Conference: “Rooted.”  Join us as we worship, pray and are challenged by God’s Word to go deeper and wider in the Lord.  God is calling us to stand tall and strong, and in Jesus we will truly be immovable! 

We look forward to seeing you there!


Susan Pettrey

Director of The Exchange Women's Ministry

Charity Gayle houses a powerful voice which has a fresh yet reminiscent sound. She loves and lives for the Lord with fierce faith and has authored songs such as "Amen," "Enter In (Psalm 100)," "New Name Written Down in Glory," "Cleansed," “Echo (in Jesus’ Name)” and more. Charity grew up in a home full of worship and has been involved in ministry since she was a child. She is passionate about racial, generational, and social reconciliation and unity of God’s people.

Charity is an artist and writer with People & Songs and is featured on "The Emerging Sound" records Volume 1 through 5. Her first solo album, "Lord, You are My Song" debuted at #1 in the Christian & Gospel genre and #20 in all genres in January 2018. She is currently writing for her highly anticipated sophomore album, coming soon. 

Charity lives and leads worship with her husband Ryan Kennedy and continues to minister in the US and globally.


Priscilla Shirer is a wife and mom first, but put a Bible in her hand and a message in her heart, and you’ll see why thousands meet God in powerful, personal ways at her conferences and through her books and Bible studies.
She and her husband, Jerry, lead Going Beyond Ministries through which they provide spiritual support and resources to the body of Christ. They count it as their greatest privilege to serve every denomination and culture across the spectrum of the church.
Between writing and studying, you’ll probably find Priscilla at home cleaning up after (and trying to satisfy the appetites of) her three rapidly growing boys.


Katherine and Jay Wolf are survivors, storytellers, advocates, and evangelists. In 2008, at the age of 26, Katherine nearly died from a catastrophic brainstem stroke. Her survival and recovery, not to mention that of her marriage and family, have been nothing short of miraculous.

Katherine and Jay are in full-time ministry together through HOPE HEALS, leveraging their story to encourage those with broken bodies, broken brains, and broken hearts. Engaging both faith-based and secular communities, they seek to bridge the gap between those disabled on the outside and those disabled on the inside with the hope that Jesus brings healing to the deepest pains we all carry.

They co-authored their first book, HOPE HEALS, published by Zondervan in April 2016, and launched HOPE HEALS CAMP, a Summer camp for families with disabilities in June 2017. Their newest book "Suffer Strong" will be releasing in February of 2020. They currently reside in Atlanta with their two sons, James and John.
