The Fingerlakes Church of God in Christ, Mennonite congregation about 8 miles northwest of Moravia, New York, USA was established in 1996. The congregation started when families began to move to the area for farming with the encouragement of the Mission Board of the denomination.

Initially the families met in homes, followed by a number of years in a former Baptist church in the town of Fleming, New York. In 2002 it moved to its own building northwest of Moravia.

The congregation also operates the Fingerlakes Christian School.

In 2020 the congregation was part of the Church of God in Christ, Mennonite. The minister was Melvin Peachey.
