The building at Lincoln Street and Seventh Avenue has grown and evolved over its lifetime, always in harmony with the church’s mission. Church of the Wayfarer’s timeless charm appeals to local residents and tourists alike.

Located in the geographical center of the village, Church of the Wayfarer has been a major contributor to the ambience of this special place, with tourists from all over the world enjoying a respite from their travels on our benches and in our sanctuary.

Church of the Wayfarer’s ministries possess both breadth and depth. The meaning and inspiration of tradition blends with a more contemporary form of worship to create a dynamic Christian experience for both families and individuals.

Services include both classical and contemporary music, while sermons emphasize Christian teachings illustrated by contemporary events and experiences.

Worship should be engaging, moving and relevant.  At Church of the Wayfarer, it is.
