Meet Pastor Deano and Darlene Pulice.

I grew up in a small coal mining town in south west Pennsylvania called Fairchance while Darlene grew up in Uniontown Pa.  When I was a child, a neighbor started taking me to Sunday school at the Free Methodist Church. In 1978 on a Thursday evening while attending an FM Campmeeting, I responded to the message of God’s love and forgiveness and went forward on the 6th verse of the hymn “Just as I am” and became a follower of Jesus. I graduated from Roberts Wesleyan College in 1986 with a major in Music and a minor in Biblical Studies. During that time, I answered God’s call to ministry and was ordained in 1991. Over the years I’ve been honored to serve in a variety of ministries including youth pastor, associate pastor, church planter, senior pastor, and interim pastor. I’ve also served as camp evangelist and worship leader for several camps over the years.  I met my wife Darlene through the Free Methodist Church and we were married in 1981.  We have been blessed with 4 children, 10 grandchildren (one in heaven) and another due in March. We also have 2 grand dogs.  I officially retired from full time ministry in October 2020 after serving almost 36 years. We live in North Greece.

We look forward to being part of the Crossroads Community Church family here in Webster as I serve as interim pastor until a lead pastor can be found. Until that time let’s work together to continue sharing the love of Jesus to Webster and beyond.  Please if you would like to connect sometime or are in need of prayer or have spiritual questions, you can reach me at or call 585-738-1938.

My life verse is Romans 8:38-39:   “For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” 

My Cup Has Overflowed

I've never made a fortune, and it's probably too late now.
But I don't worry about that much, I'm happy anyhow
And as I go along life's way,
I'm reaping better than I sowed.
I'm drinking from my saucer,
Cause my cup has overflowed. 

Haven't got a lot of riches,
and sometimes the going's tough
But I've got loving ones all around me,
and that makes me rich enough. 
I thank God for his blessings,
and the mercies He's bestowed.
I'm drinking from my saucer,
Cause my cup has overflowed.

I remember times when things went wrong,
My faith wore somewhat thin.
But all at once the dark clouds broke,
and the sun peeped through again.
So Lord, help me not to gripe,
about the tough rows I have hoed.
I'm drinking from my saucer,
Cause my cup has overflowed.

If God gives me strength and courage,
When the way grows steep and rough.
I'll not ask for other blessings,
I'm already blessed enough.

And may I never be too busy,
to help others bear their loads.
Then I'll keep drinking from my saucer,
Cause my cup has overflowed.
