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.
We resume our Fall worship schedule on Sunday, September 12th, 2021. In-person and virtual Worship will both be starting at 11:00 AM, with the prelude beginning at 10:55. All are welcome here!

You may recall that last December the church furnace gave up for good and needed to be replaced, at a cost of $11,000. The furnace was replaced and the money was paid. A call went out to our members and friends, asking you to consider making a contribution to offset that cost. Given the church’s finances in the middle of the pandemic, a new furnace just was not in the … Continue reading →

Dear Church Family,
Our Easter Season of worship services and activities is going to look a bit different this year due to COVID 19 safety concerns. Specifically, reservations for the Palm Sunday and Easter Sunday services are required. To make one you can leave a message on the office machine (845-354-2372), by sending an e-mail to email@example.com, or signing up in the narthex.
Palm Sunday — Since we are still only allowed 25 people at a time in our sanctuary, there will be a sign up sheet posted in the Narthex for you to use. The service will also be streaming on our website, as usual. Due to COVID concerns, we will not be having our usual pot luck luncheon. Link to: Anthem Video.
Maundy Thursday — This will be a hybrid service as we have been doing for several months now — some people worshiping in church and some virtually. Starts at 7:30 PM.
Good Friday — The service will be provided on our website by the Hudson River Presbytery. Starts at 7:30 PM.
Easter Sunday — As mentioned above for Palm Sunday, there will be sign up sheet in the Narthex. And again, sadly, there will not be an early service and breakfast or an Easter Egg Hunt. Worship starts at 11 AM.
Despite these circumstances, we can still joyfully and safely celebrate our risen Lord together!
In His Name, Sue Rentz, Chair of Worship, Music and the Arts
