Our History

The Saratoga Chapel is a church-planting ministry of the East Glenville Community Church. We began meeting as a Bible study group in the summer of 1989. Worship services were added in December of that year. The pastor of The Saratoga Chapel is Rev. Jim Hale, a graduate of Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary, with a Master of Divinity degree. Jim has served locally in the congregations of the Bethlehem Community Church, Delmar, NY, and the East Glenville Community Church, in East Glenville, NY. We have adopted the Westminster Confession of Faith, and are part of the Conservative Congregational Christian Conference (CCCC).
