March 30: Bill & Karla Allen, Otego, NY
The community of Otego is nestled in the hills west of the Catskill Mountains in southeastern New York. Being close to the city of Oneonta, people commute to work where a variety of professions are available. First Christian Church of Otego is situated four miles outside the Village. Eighty-five percent of our congregation is retired or at the brink of retirement. To improve community outreach, we changed the name of our monthly Fellowship Dinner to Community Potluck, which immediately tripled the attendance and brought new folks to the church. We are thankful for new families God has brought into the church and folks who have accepted Christ who are growing in their faith. Please help us pray for young families and continued spiritual growth.
