Welcome!

We hope that you'll join us for Sunday morning worship at 10:00am and for other fellowship and activities during the week. We’ve recently redefined the focus of our church's ministry:
  • Connecting with God
  • Community with others
  • Caring for the world
Lisha’s Kill is a community in which we seek to know Jesus Christ and follow him in mission in our world. We offer a variety of opportunities for fellowship, personal growth, worship and service. As you browse our site, we hope that you’ll find a place you can call home!

We pray that you will join us as we seek “joy in the journey” in relationship with God and one another.

In the grace and peace of Christ,

Pastor's Ponderings

Dear Friends,

I like cartoons. It always seems that these can capture what people are feeling in ways that mere words cannot. There is one in my archives from a few years ago in The Schenectady Gazette that seems particularly appropriate for our current context. It featured two individuals engaged in arm wrestling, with the specter of terrorism lurking off to the side. One individual’s label was “panic,” and the other was designated as “don’t panic.” And isn’t that just about the size of the situation in our country right now?

Of course, as Christians we know that panic is not the right course, because we know the One in whom we have believed, and we know the One who holds the future. We also know from Romans 8 that nothing can come between us and the love of God in Christ Jesus. And yet, at times we need to be reminded that, as the hymn says, “Though the wrong seems oft so strong, God is the Ruler yet.” I also am encouraged by this refrain which reminds us to dare to believe:
  • Goodness is stronger than evil;
  • love is stronger than hate;
  • light is stronger than darkness;
  • hope is stronger than despair.
Friends, in this time of uncertainty, hold on to that which is certain: the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord. Let that be our focus and our hope, and may we proclaim it loudly to those around us who struggle with fear and despair.

Grace and peace to you in Jesus,
