Our Minister, the Reverend Kirtland M. Watkins, comes to us following a first career in education. His first Masters degree is from SUNY Stonybrook; his Masterís in Divinity was awarded in 2000 from New York Theological Seminary in Manhattan.
Pastor Kirt has a firm belief in the power and necessity of prayer; both intercessory prayer, and prayers of thanksgiving for all the bounty of His provisions. As a former teacher of history he enjoys relating the stories and teachings of the bible and the cultural milieu of the time to the challenges and needs of the present day. He firmly believes in the provision and perfection of Godís plans for us; even though the purpose of daily events may remain unrevealed to us at the present time.
Pastor Kirt has spent much of his life here on Long Island; growing up in Huntington and living most of his adult life in Suffolk County. As an avid photographer he finds joy in photographing the beauty of Godís creations Ė both in nature and in His people.
We extend an invitation for you to join us in worship on Sunday at 10:00 a.m. and in other functions of our church family.
