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.

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!

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.

The Per Capita goes to supporting the work of Hudson River Presbytery, The Synod of the Northeast, and the General Assembly. This year, our church’s fee is $38.80 per member, for a total of just under $3000. … Continue reading →
