Worship 8:30 am
The Early Service is a Meditative Communion service. Worship begins with prayer and then periods of silence . You will be led in prayer, scripture will be read, a homily offered and then we share Communion around the table.
Worship at 10:00 am
This is a traditional service. We sing hymns, have group prayers, and follow the church year. Communion is held on the first Sunday of every month. After the service, we share a coffee hour together. A staffed nursery is open during the service, though children are also welcome to stay with their parents.
Our Welcome Service on the last Sunday of the month has been designed to intentionally include persons of differing abilities from local group homes. This service grew out of the desire to have a safe place for everyone to worship together. After the service all are invited to stay for light refreshments.
The Missions Ministry Board welcomes, and needs, regular volunteer support from mission minded people. PLEASE LET US KNOW IF YOU ARE WILLING TO SIGN UP AS A “JUSTICE TEAM VOLUNTEER” WHO IS CALLED UPON WHEN NEW MISSION PROJECTS ARE PROPOSED TO US. Also feel free to bring your ideas for congregational “action” to our attention.
Grief Support Group
If you have suffered a loss and you are looking for a safe place to come to be with others who are trying to deal with and process loss, you are welcome to join the grief support group offered at Mt. Sinai Congregational Church. We are starting a new group in January. The group is a peer facilitated group led by a member of the Caring Ministry Team. The group will meet weekly for eight weeks at 10:00 a.m. on Saturdays beginning January 19, 2019, Four booklets called “Journeying Through Grief” by Kenneth Haugk are used as a guide in our meetings. We meet at the church for an hour to an hour and a half depending on the size of the group. There is no fee but we do request that you call the church office at 631-473-1582 to register so we know how many to expect. We will offer the group beginning January 19th if three or more people register. If you have any questions or want to register please call the church office and Jenn Piccolo, Church Administrator will assist you or put you in touch with Diane Corson, the group facilitator.
The Mitten Tree
Thank you for your outpouring of generosity. As is our Christmas tradition here at Mt. Sinai Congregational Church, we collect new unwrapped toys, gift cards, hats, mittens, and pajamas for needy children on the east end of Long Island, particularly children age 8 to 13. It is because of you that we were able to help so many. Thank you and Merry Christmas!”
