Children’s Sunday School Schedule. 

The Kevin Guest House campus is comprised of four buildings in the heart of the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus and can serve guests in these beautifully restored homes in a variety of rooms based on your need and availability. Learn more about Kevin’s story and our history.  Our mission is to provide a comfortable and supportive home away from home for patients and their families traveling for medical care.  Our vision is that we were America’s first independent healthcare hospitality house, setting the standard for compassionate guest care. Our values - The door is always open at Kevin Guest House.  We are planning a future trip to Kevin Guest House in Buffalo  in January.  If you would like to offer yourself for future dates, please speak to Karin Johnson.

This year we will be helping the Child Advocacy Center of WNY in their efforts to provide small gifts to the children they serve. This is the same organization to which we supply blankets throughout the year. Simple things are asked for in this effort: tooth brushes and toothpaste, small toys (such as match box cars, Barbies’s etc), small clothing for the little ones (size infant to 6x), socks, small sacks or backpacks in which the organization will deliver the items to the children. This time sensitive effort will run from Dec. 1-13. Please again use the blue bin in the narthex to deposit your gifts.

Blankets are being made for children in foster care.  The local foster care system distributes 100 blankets a month. Our group will create no-sew blankets that can be made in one night and delivered to the Child Advocate Center on Franklin St. with tags that say "This blanket belongs to: _________" and the child will be able to write there name on it.  This way they will always be able to have at least one thing that is their own. We meet the third Thursday of each month  (next date is December 13th)  from 6-8 at the church -   The group, under the guidance of Lisa Martin, will resume their monthly meetings September 20th. Contact Lisa ( for more details. Donated complete blankets are also welcome. Our thanks to all who have participated this past year.

These continue to be collected and deposited in the box located in the coat room  Monies received are used to help the local needs of the hungry.
