Your gifts to this year’s Peace & Global Witness Offering (formerly the Peacemaking Offering) will benefit Habitat for Humanity of Rockland, to continue their work providing at-cost homes for eligible members of our community. Their work on the Hillburn home is nearing completion. Your gifts will help put the finishing touches on this project and ensure that it’s move-in ready for Latoya A. and her family, later this Fall. Home ownership is a positive, life-changing event for families, providing stability and security. Your gifts to the Peace & Global Witness Offering help make it possible. Please give generously, now through October 3rd, 2021.

Pentecost is Sunday, May 23rd. This year, your gifts to the Pentecost Offering will directly benefit the Martin Luther King, Jr. Multi-Purpose Center in Spring Valley. Help is always needed, but especially now, as the Center gears up for its summer program. You can help ensure that local children have safe, fun and educational experiences this summer. Give to the Pentecost Offering!
Now through Sunday, December 20th, our Deacons are collecting warm winter socks for our homeless neighbors and others in need. Our goal is to collect 150 pairs of socks, to “Warm the Soles” of individuals throughout Rockland County.
Why socks? Imagine spending your entire day outdoors, often in cold and wet weather…Imagine having no easy access to laundry, shower or bathroom facilities…and how much more difficult all this is during a pandemic. Imagine how good it would feel to have an extra pair of clean, warm socks at the end of a long day. It’s such a simple gesture, and can mean so much.
Our collection bin is inside the front door of the church, so be sure to bring in your socks by Sunday, December 20th. Monetary donations are also gratefully accepted, and we’ll do the shopping for you! (If you write a check, be sure to indicate “Socks” in the memo line.)
Contact Laura Bidon with any questions, or to arrange drop-off/pick-up at non-church hours.
Thank you for “Warming the Soles” of Rockland County!
Our tradition continues! New Hempstead Presbyterian Church has a long history of donating “Thanksgiving Baskets” to local families in need, and this year the need for a hearty Thanksgiving meal is greater than ever in our community. Be sure to bring your non-perishable food items (see list below) to church by Sunday, November 15th. Bring in perishable items (turkey and loaf of bread) on Sunday, November 22nd (or contact us … Continue reading →
The work of the Church continues, even throughout a pandemic! Your 2021 financial pledge to NHPC is more important than ever, as is your commitment to give of your time and talents. Stewardship Sunday is November 8th. Return your pledge card in person, or send it by mail using the self-addressed stamped envelope you should have received in the mail. And don’t forget to complete and return the Time & Talent Commitment Card as well! Contact Jane Craig Sebok with any questions, or if you haven’t received these materials. We hope you’ll remember what the church means to you, as you prayerfully consider your commitment for the upcoming year–both the money you can pledge and the talents you can share with your church family.
Your gifts to this year’s Peacemaking Offering will benefit the Martin Luther King, Jr. Multi-Purpose Center in Spring Valley. Throughout the pandemic, they have been active in meeting the needs of children and families in our community–providing large-scale food distributions, blood drives, COVID-testing and a successful summer youth program! Please give generously, now through October 4th, and help the Center keep Martin Luther King Jr.’s dream of the “beloved community” alive here in Rockland County.
We resume our Fall worship schedule on Sunday, 9/13/20. Join us at 10:55 for the Prelude, in-person on the Great Lawn, or via Live Stream!
