    My in-laws lived in Penfield until just a few years ago so we passed the church building often. It certainly had an interesting history – thanks for shary the story.

    What a great post! I remember all those things, even working at that Ponderosa you mentioned, back when Perkind Swim Club was behind it, worked there too! Its great looking back esp as I have lived in Paris the past 22 years. Thanks for sharing that!

    I went to that church as a little boy (must have been in the early 70s). The pastors that were there at the time were Rev. Dayton Reynolds, currently of Sugar Land, Texas and George Osborne of Covenant Life Fellowship in Ontario, NY. I know that some time in that 1977 timeframe, a Christian School was housed in the facility (I think it was called the Advent Christian School) and that the school and part of the church congregation went on to become New Covenant Fellowship and New Covenant Christian School, the latter of which morphed again 10-15 years ago into The Charles Finney School which currently resides in the Denonville building. Either of those pastors would be good resources to use in filling in the gap you mentioned above.
