Now that we have reached this stage in the history of the Kimisis Church Community, we should remember the charge we gave our architect when we asked him to design our church on Grand Avenue, “ We want to retain our heritage, to be current for today and be current in the days and years to come”. We should seek to follow the advice we gave him and remember “heritage”, “being current today” and “current tomorrow”.

I wrote this history from sources in the Church community and the Poughkeepsie community. Sources include: Church commemorative albums, newspaper articles, the Vassar College Library, the Dutchess County Historical Society, the City Assessor’s office, personal experiences and personal interviews.
