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!
Sunday Worship starts at 10:00 a.m. through Labor Day.
Pauline Mattis and the Christian Nurture and Spiritual Growth committee have chosen a new book for the children’s Sunday school. Growing in God’s Love: A Story-Bible is a fun book which introduces the children to the classic Bible stories in a way that we have found keeps their attention. Pauline will be distributing a schedule of which stories are covered in which weeks, and parents are welcome to purchase the book to reinforce the learning at home.
Plans are underway to build a Memorial Garden in the Great Lawn at NHPC. The garden will include a brick patio, featuring the same type of memorial bricks as the ones used in the front walkway to the church. Memorial bricks are for sale at $50 each. If you’d like to purchase a brick, order forms are available in the Colonial Room. There is also a sketch of the proposed garden on display in the Colonial Room. Please contact Mark Zacheis if you have any questions.
Pentecost is Sunday, June 9th, and again this year our Pentecost Offering will be dedicated to the Martin Luther King Jr. Multipurpose Center in Spring Valley. Your gifts will directly benefit children of our community who may not otherwise have the opportunity to attend the Center’s Summer Program. The Summer Program provides academic enrichment, field trips, music and fun in a safe and caring environment. Please give prayerfully and generously to the Pentecost Offering, and don’t forget to wear red on Sunday!
Special thanks to the Center’s Executive Director Nathan Mungin III and his wife Laura for worshiping with us last Sunday, and sharing stories of some of the families who benefit from our gifts. When our children thrive, our community thrives!
