Dr. Marvin McMickle, President
of Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School, was the keynote preacher for our 218th annual Heritage Sunday. He challenged historic First Baptist Church to appreciate our past, but to focus our promising present and faith-filled future with compassionate determination. Dr McMickle answered Rev. Smith's contemporary questions on hot-button issues following a delicious ham dinner.
Thanks to Fred and Linda Cazer for ham preparations.

Also, the Annual Autumn Organ Recital organized by Chris was a delightful success with over 80 attendees. Robert Kerner of Kerner and Merchant was the guest organist.

Boynton is the best experienced professional audio system installer in Central NYS. Special thanks to all who made this project possible.
