Community Appreciation Day slated for Aug. 12
CANASTOTA — On Sunday, Aug. 12, Hope Christian Fellowship is partnering with Believers’ Chapel of Canastota and the Compassion Connection Food Pantry to sponsor a Community Appreciation Day, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The public may join in under a tent that will be set up at 2657 Seneca Turnpike.
The Rev. Thomas Burgess, the pastor of Hope Christian Fellowship, and a case supervisor with Onondaga County Adult Protective Services, will speak on the subject of “Revival” during the morning worship time. There will be food, music, children’s activities and water baptism for those who have not yet been baptized or who may desire to do their first works over (Acts 2:38; Revelation 2:5).
A life-long Central New Yorker, Burgess is a 1971 graduate of Canastota High School. He then attended Syracuse University, where he received his bachelor’s of science degree in speech communications and education, and subsequently completed post-graduate work at Le Moyne College to earn certification in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages.
An educator in elementary, secondary and adult education for more than two decades prior to working for Onondaga County, he now frequently presents to various agencies and community groups and is a trainer for a National Clearinghouse on Abuse in Later Life grant. Burgess is a past recipient of an Onondaga County Volunteer Award for his work with abused children and youth and a National Adult Protective Services Association Award for his work on elder justice. In August, Burgess also celebrates the 41st anniversary of his ordination to the Christian ministry.
