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 2014

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.

  • 7th Annual Cortaca Mug: Over 300 students at the Interfaith Center for our alcohol/ drug -free event.
  • The Chautauqua 2014 Event: Themed “Explore. Experience. Engage” was extremely successful. We pondered the ways in which all of us seek to live with purpose.
  • Fall Retreat at the St. Lawrence River: New this year, just after Labor Day, students of our Campus Ministry traveled to the St. Lawrence River to enjoy a weekend retreat for the purposes of spiritual growth and bonding.
  • CROP Walk: Our award winning 2014 CROP Walk team was the team from campus that raised the most funds.

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.
