Pastor Steve Dambra visits RadioRotary to tell about the Odyssey Church, which serves the developmentally disabled community of Dutchess County (and others who choose to attend). Located at the ARC Vocational Center in Poughkeepsie, Odyssey provides the all the services you expect from a Christian Church—a Sunday service at 10:00 a.m. that is filled with hymns and prayers, Bible study, even baptisms. Sermons are kept simple, focusing on a single topic.
Much of the congregation is bussed in from group homes around the county. Members of the congregation participate in the organization in many ways. The church is also planning to partake in a celebration run by the Tim Tebow Foundation, called “A Night to Shine,” a prom night where every participant is a King or Queen of the Prom. Odyssey Church is part of the outreach from the Hopewell Reformed Church, a pillar of religion and good works in Dutchess Country that has been active since 1757.
