A New Beacon of Faith: Family & Community Empowerment Church Debuts in Amityville

In a joyous celebration of faith and community, the inaugural worship service of The Family & Community Empowerment Church took place this past Sunday at the historic First United Methodist Church in the heart of Amityville, New York. Led by the dynamic Pastor Lynn Boone, formerly of the Hollywood Full Gospel Baptist Church in North Amityville, this independent, non-denominational congregation is poised to become a vital spiritual anchor for families across central Long Island.

Pastor Lynn Boone brings a wealth of experience and a passion for community empowerment to this new chapter in her ministry. Having served at the Hollywood Full Gospel Baptist Church under the esteemed leadership of Bishop Andy C. Lewter, Pastor Boone is known for her inspiring sermons, commitment to social justice, and unwavering dedication to fostering a sense of unity and empowerment among her congregation.

The Family & Community Empowerment Church represents a departure from traditional church structures, offering a fresh perspective on worship and community engagement. The decision to hold Sunday worship services in the afternoon is a deliberate choice to accommodate the diverse schedules of families in the area, ensuring that everyone has an opportunity to come together in the spirit of fellowship and worship.

“The goal of Family & Community Empowerment Church is to create a space where individuals and families feel not only spiritually nourished but also empowered to make positive changes in their lives and communities,” expressed Pastor Lynn Boone during the inaugural service. “We aim to be a beacon of love, hope, and empowerment for all who seek a meaningful connection with their faith and community.”

The First United Methodist Church, a longstanding fixture in Amityville, graciously opened its doors to accommodate this exciting new venture. The collaboration between The Family & Community Empowerment Church and the First United Methodist Church exemplifies the spirit of unity and cooperation that both congregations hold dear.

As an independent non-denominational church, Family & Community Empowerment Church welcomes individuals and families from all walks of life. Its inclusive philosophy emphasizes the importance of building a diverse and supportive community where everyone is accepted and valued.

Looking ahead, The Family & Community Empowerment Church has plans to engage in various community outreach programs, from educational initiatives to partnerships with local charities, embodying the belief that faith and service go hand in hand.

Residents of Amityville and the surrounding areas are invited to join Family & Community Empowerment Church for their Sunday afternoon worship services at 2:00 pm. The doors are open wide to all who seek a welcoming community that celebrates the power of faith, unity, and positive change. Together, under the leadership of Pastor Lynn Boone, this new church promises to be a source of inspiration and empowerment for years to come.
