Lead Article - Cabin Hill Deb Fleming, Commissioned Lay Pastor

The Cabin Hill Presbyterian Church, located on Rt. 2 between DeLancey and Andes in one of the most beautiful areas of Delaware County is a tiny, but mighty church. A spirit-filled congregation whose hearts are huge and who are constantly looking for ways to do mission both locally and globally. 

On a regular bases they contribute grocery cards to the Andes Central School to help with the Snak-Pak program. At Christmas they make and fills stockings for the students. They have given generously to the building of a hospital in Togo, Africa through friends who are serving as missionaries there. 

Two years ago they purchased a commercial stove for an agricultural school in Kazakhstan so that the students there could continue to receive soup, bread and tea for their lunch each day. 

In addition, they have given generously to two families in the area whose houses have burned down so they could purchase basic necessities. 

On “FIFTH SUNDAY” we worship with the Andes and Bovina Presbyterian Churches and the South Kortright Community Church. Following worship we join together in a shared meal. This wonderful congregation has been a blessing to the Andes community for over 185 years. It has been my honor and my joy to serve as their Commissioned Lay Pastor for 14 year of those 185 years.
