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!

Our safety protocols are revised frequently observing all local guidelines. Please review our policies for in-person worship. As of May, 2022, masks are recommended for indoor Worship and required for singing.
