Fellowship at New Hempstead

We invite you to join us any Sunday morning for Worship followed by a fellowship time. Join us for snacks and conversation after every Sunday Worship service. The Deacons and other volunteers put out a variety of different foods each week for you to sample and enjoy.

Fellowship Breakfast

The “Fellowship Breakfast” is held at 8:30 AM on the last Saturday of every month year-round at City Line Restaurant on Main Street in New City. No special invitations are necessary, just come on over and sit down!

All are welcome and invited, so mark your calendars and please join us!


Fellowship Meals

The church has fellowship meals from time to time including a back-to-school luncheon in September, the Palm Sunday luncheon, an Easter breakfast and a church picnic in the summer. For additional information about these and any other activities please see our newsletter The Carriage Stone.

Choir Rehearsal

Choir meets Thursday evenings at 8 PM throughout the Fall, Winter and Spring. If anyone wants to join us or see what it’s all about, please call Kryste Andrews, Director of Music or leave a message at the church office. You don’t need to read music to be a part of the choir. All are welcome.

Youth Group

Generally meets Sunday evenings from 4-6 PM. Young people 12 or older (and their friends) are invited to come & share some fun and fellowship with others their own age.
Please contact Howard Whitehouse or the church office for more details.

The youth group runs the weekly food drive. The People to People food pantry gratefully accepts all the donations that we provide. We highlight particular items that they are short of each month as a way to keep the hungry in our thoughts and prayers. Please leave your donations in the Narthex (back of the church).
