The Synod calls us to become a Church that gets up, one that is not turned in on itself, but capable of pressing forward, leaving behind its own prisons and setting out to meet the world, with the courage to open doors. Let’s walk together as a Church with the Holy Spirit. 

1 8 4 7  –  2 0 2 2

Today, the people throughout Western New York are the beneficiaries and powerful legacy of faith and models of service.  We are commissioned through our baptism to continue to deepen our own faith, share and witness that faith to others, and serve one another.  We are called to continue and pass on our heritage of faith and service to future generations.
