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.

This region has been torn apart by civil war and religious extremist violence. More than 400,000 people have been killed, 1.8 million have been wounded, and more than 5 million have fled as refugees.

Our trip goals:

  1. Medical Clinic Outreaches 
  2. Physical and Occupational Rehabilitation Training

We need physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses, pharmacists, and other medical professionals, to form a medical team, as well as Arabic and Kurdish speakers to serve as translators for our medical clinics. Since the conflict began, we have sent medical teams to the region to help with the overall humanitarian and medical crisis. We will work alongside other ministries that have a long-term presence in the region. Keep in mind that we will be working, not in the conflict zones, but in refugee areas.
