WELCOME to Fairmount Community Church United Church of Christ! Whether you are an “old" friend or a new visitor to our website- we are so glad you're "checking us out".
As of December 1, 2019, we have begun a Worshiping Community with Robinson Elmwood United Church. Our Worship Time is 10 a.m. Our shared worship will begin every Sunday at 10 a.m. with Pastor Gary (FCC UCC) and Pastor Stephanie (REUC) sharing within our service. We will have components of both FCC UCC and REUC's "worship styles".
During this time of the pandemic and social distancing restrictions, reservations are necessary to attend the worship service in the sanctuary OR join us via live streaming. - see the link to the left with instructions.
Liz Martin from REUC will assume the responsibility of creating our weekly Church bulletin. The "Happenings" email will continue to keep you informed of what's going on weekly.
We want to point out that we are not joining or merging our two Churches - but rather will continue as FCC UCC along with our specific identity, fiduciary issues and history. We simply will be two Churches worshipping under one roof at 10 a.m. on Sunday mornings. If you have any questions/concerns about our combined Worship Community, please see Pastor Gary. It is our hope and prayer that our combined voices and spirits and energy will uplift us all when we're together in worship. Our journey as FCC UCC continues......and thanks be to God!
There's a LOT happening here at church-- and we are especially excited to be able to share our Sunday worship services through internet live streaming technology! Please note the following specific information about our live streaming on the separate page.
Our church is located in the Westvale area of Syracuse, at the intersection of South Terry and West Granger Roads (126 South Terry Road Syracuse NY 13219). The church has two entrances - in the front of the building (West Granger Road) in the center, along a flower garden path. This entrance does have a lift suitable for wheelchairs up to the sanctuary. The second entrance is on the side of the church (Newcastle Rd) and has a chair lift up to the sanctuary.
We pray you will find comfort and inspiration in hearing and singing about God’s word on a Sunday morning here!
We invite you to feel free to use inclusive language during our worship service; and if you are visiting, let us know what we can do for you. If our church can ever be of assistance to you, call the church office at (315) 487-8521 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
At this time during the COVID outbreak, our office hours are by appointment only. Please call the office to make an appointment with me. Our email is checked daily.
The Menu on the left contains links to various aspects of our ministries and church activities.
We hope you'll check this website out and invite you to do two things: one, call us at (315) 487-8521 with any questions you have regarding our faith family, and two, come and see us!
No matter who you are, and no matter where you are on your faith journey, you are welcome here. During this time, reservations are necessary to attend the worship service in the sanctuary - see the link to the left with instructions.
Blessings and Peace--
Rev. Gary E. Ferner
