About Us

 
Homecrest is a warm and welcoming Christian community. Our Members and visitors include families with young children as well as Members who have been a part of the Church for more than 30 years.
 
 
 Homecrest has been serving the Sheepshead Bay community of Brooklyn for the past 112 years, since 1900.  Over the years, the surrounding neighborhood has experienced a significant demographic changes.  Our church population has responded accordingly in providing a welcoming space for ALL of God's people.  Thanks to the dedication, faithfulness and commitment of our members, and with God's blessings, Homecrest has continued to be a beacon to its community. We trust that God will continue to reveal God's presence in this community for years to come.
 
Homecrest is home to a membership with a very diverse cultural background and a senior community center. Over the years, Homecrest has been home to Boy Scout Troops and many other community groups and events.  We have been blessed with a beautiful facility for worship and fellowship.  In addition to the Homecrest Community Service, Inc., we also share our facilities with two other worshipping communities - the Brooklyn Chinese Alliance Church and
the Brooklyn Christian Church.

Homecrest is a member congregation of the
New York City Presbytery, Synod of the Northeast and the Presbyterian Church (USA).  The Holy Communion is celebrated on the first Sunday of each month and is extended to all who have been baptized who come in faith, repentance and love.
 
Our Mission is to serve God faithfully, as disciples of Jesus Christ, by

- Proclaiming Jesus' gospel and calling others into his service;

- Working for peace and justice in our own community and for the reconciliation of the world;

- Ministering to the needs, spiritual and bodily, of both those within our church family and those outside; and

- Remaining faithful to the Reformed tradition as embodied in the confessions and order of the Presbyterian Church (USA).
