A Church for All People




This is a marvelous church with people who genuinely care for us, each other and the community at large. We have exciting worship, good Sunday School classes, a Gathering where adults can share stories of their faith journeys with each other and a large outreach program to the community around us.


Allene and I are really enjoying our time here with the folks of the Marcellus First Presbyterian Church. On their behalf, I would like to welcome you to our web site and our church. I am very privileged to serve this wonderful congregation as the Pastor. I am normally available Monday through Thursday in the church office. If you’d like to see me, drop in Tuesdays between 9:00 and 11:00 am and walk right in. Otherwise, give Sue Cramer a call and make sure I’m in. if you are in the area, I have an open door policy and would love to have you drop in. The way it works is if my door is open you are welcome to walk in — no appointment necessary, and I always try to be in on Tuesdays.


I’m happy to meet with you or your extended family about weddings, funerals, baptisms, etc. If you have counseling needs, I’ll be happy to talk with you and help you find out where you can go and how you can work with a profession.


I also publish a weekly email newsletter about events at the church, current issues and humorous stories. You are welcome to check it out on our Newsletters page and to sign up for it by emailing me at And you are welcome to write me at any time or call me on my cell phone (315) 882-5097 if you have any questions.


Grace and peace,
