Our Mission
The Cortland County Council of Churches is an ecumenical body. As such, we exists to minister to and serve people of all faiths and creeds both on campus and in the community by living out the teachings of Jesus. In addition, we foster unity and cooperation between distinct religious groups or denominations of Christianity.

Our Vision
The Cortland County Council of Churches will serve as a comprehensive ecumenical resource for faith-based organizations and people of our community. We support an initiative that strives for greater mutual respect, toleration, and co-operation among the world religions.

In 2017

Cortland County Council of Churches had a very busy year and we are delighted to share the results of our hard work with our biggest supporters—local churches, businesses and individuals—we couldn’t have done it without you.

  • 10th Annual Cortaca Mug: Over 450 students at the Interfaith Center for our alcohol/ drug -free event.
  • The Chautauqua 2017 Event: Our worship service, “Come and be Fed,” brought us together under the tent in Homer as we contemplated the ways we are fed spiritually in this world.
  • CROP Walk: Our 2017 CROP Walk was once again a huge community success! $11,000 was raised to fight hunger!

We are proud of the strong support system The Interfaith Crew provides and for the positive influence this group has on all those they touch.
