Located at 484 New Hempstead Road, near the intersection of Route 45, in New City, New York, we are a diverse congregation of about 100 members serving central Rockland County. We are joined in our belief that the church is called to be the continuing presence of Christ in the world, and we live out this belief by tending to the spiritual needs of our members and friends, and by working together for the health of our community and the world. Under the leadership of our Pastor, Rev. Dr. Lori Knight-Whitehouse, our mission in the local community continues to grow. We are an inclusive congregation. All are welcome here!
Summer Worship is at 10:00am, starting Sunday, June 18th through Labor Day.
Come worship with us, experience our hospitality and find your spiritual home with us.
The New Hempstead Presbyterian Church is a member of the Presbyterian Church USA PC(USA).

Members and friends of our congregation were recently asked to select a local agency to be the recipient of our annual Pentecost Offering. Your votes have been counted, and the winner is…..too close to call!
