Farewell to the 2017 Farmer’s Market!

It is always hard to say goodbye to this seasonal and neighborhood favorite–our very own Farmer’s Market. But come October, that indeed is what we have to do. Only this year, we decided to send it out in style with a neighborhood bike parade led by Albany Police Officer Brooks and two members of the Albany Tulip Court.

This year’s market was a huge success with between 400 and 500 visitors every week. Thank you so very much to all of our vendors, crafters, farmers and volunteers who make the market happen. We are grateful to each and every one of you!

If you are interested in being a part of the market in 2018, please contact the church office at ncovenantinfo@nycap.rr.com or at 518.482.8063.

Pastor Katy has enjoyed ministry at New Covenant since 2010, where the church has solidified its community focus. Prior to that she studied both Theology and Christian Formation at Princeton Theological Seminary. She also served as an Assistant Chaplain at Trenton Psychiatric Hospital and as the Christian Educational Coordinator at Bethany Presbyterian at Bloomfield, NJ. She is an writer and is published in Enfleshed, Sermonsuite, Presbyterian's today and Outlook. She writes prayers, liturgy, poems and public theology and is pursuing her doctorate in ministry in Creative Write and Pittsburgh Theological Seminary. She enjoys working within and connecting to the community, is known to laugh a lot during service, and tells as many stories as possible. Pastor Katy loves reading Science Fiction and Fantasy, theater, arts and crafts, music, playing with children and sunshine, and continues to try to be as (w)holistically Christian as possible. "Publisher after publisher turned down A Wrinkle in Time," L'Engle wrote, "because it deals overtly with the problem of evil, and it was too difficult for children, and was it a children's or an adult's book, anyhow?" The next year it won the prestigious John Newbery Medal. Tolkien states in the foreword to The Lord of the Rings that he disliked allegories and that the story was not one.[66] Instead he preferred what he termed "applicability", the freedom of the reader to interpret the work in the light of his or her own life and times.
