About Us  

Note- Our  worship service is being temporarily held on Sunday mornings at 8:15  at Centenary UMC  (on the corner of Gray Avenue and Church Streets). Sunday school meets each Sunday after the children's message during service and Bible study follows worship at 9:15. Coffee and refreshments are provided after our regular worship service in the Centenary fellowship room.

Our Pastor – Pastor Sandra Spaulding has been with Bottskill since September 2006. She is active in the Greenwich Community as a leader for the Greenwich Interfaith Fellowship Inc., the Comfort  Food Community Outreach Committee and a member of the Town of Greenwich Ethics Committee . She also is a volunteer at the Greenwich Food Pantry and an Aftercare Volunteer for Upstate Jail Ministries.  She currently serves as a member of the American Baptist Churches of NYS Board of Mission.  In March of 2014 she traveled to Grand Goave, Haiti   to work with a team of volunteers building rubble houses to replace those destroyed by the 2010 earthquake. In 2016 she traveled again to Haiti as part of a medical mission.  She has recently completed the  Nehemiah Leadership Network Program. Each Sunday, she leads us in worship and inspires and educates us with her lively sermons.  

Our Bible Study- Our bible study meets each Sunday at 9:15 am . Our group discussions on the meaning and relevance of the studied bible passages have enriched our understanding of the bible’s message as well as provided us with applications to our lives.  These study opportunities are led by Steve Morse.   An additional bible study opportunity is held at Lakeville Baptist Church in Cossayuna led by Pastor Sandra on Wednesdays at 12:00 P     

Our Youth Group- Our youth group is open to all from sixth grade through high school. Its focus is on leadership development and mission. Two of our youth group hold positions on the NYS ABC Youth Cabinet.  In 2014, the youth group yearlong mission was the Karen refugees living in Utica , NY who are victims of ethnic cleansing in Burma . This year, the mission is the Greenwich Food Pantry.  

Our Sunday School-  Bottskill enjoys an active Sunday school for youth preschool through high school. The SS meets each Sunday after the children’s message in worship. Highlights of the Sunday school year include Monthly visits to homebound members of the church, Sept. Rally Day, Nov. Harvest Brunch, Dec Christmas program, February- Cookie Bake, June Children’s day and Summit Lake Picnic.  

Our Music Program- Each week our worship service includes a variety of music from traditional hymns accompanied by our organist, to praise music videos led by our music director and often a special anthem sung by our choir or a soloist. Choir practice is held after worship. This year, we have been blessed by the loan of a grand piano which is used as part of special worship music or piano recitals for two local piano programs.  

Our Community- Bottskill fellowship hall is used free of charge by several community organizations including the 4H, Girl Scouts, Greenwich Interfaith Committee  and Autism support Group.   Bottskill is a designated Red Cross Emergency Shelter.  

Our Fundraisers  Bottskill hosts a bi annual chicken and biscuit dinner the third Sunday of April and November. In May, we hold a garage sale and lunch.
