During this time of physical distancing, we have two options for worship: you can worship with us virtually, or in-person following all safety precautions. More information is available in the Worship menu above or on the home page. We hope these pictures, taken before the pandemic, remind us that God will bring us through this time as He has brought other generations through trials.
The Church meets for Worship each Sunday at 11 AM from the first Sunday after Labor Day in September through the second Sunday in June, and at 10 AM for the summer weeks in between.
pastor Rev. Dr. Lori Knight-Whitehouse challenges us to dig deeply into our ideas of faith and service to others. We believe in making a joyful noise unto the Lord, and our service includes an excellent choir trained by Lois Anderson, our amazing music director, who also plays piano and organ. Many times throughout the years, the service is enhanced by instruments such as horn, flute, trumpet, violin, guitar, and clarinet, to name a few. Our order of Worship includes a children’s sermon each week and Holy Eucharist the first Sunday of every month. We are lucky to have a friendly multicultural congregation and welcome everyone, regardless of race, background, gender identification, or sexual orientation. Please join us!
There is Fellowship Hour immediately after worship each Sunday in the Colonial Room, which can be reached through the doors at the front of the Sanctuary. Please be our guest and enjoy our hospitality.
All who are baptized and trust Jesus Christ as their savior are invited to partake. This invitation comes with a warning: if you sit down and eat with Jesus at this table, you will get up walking like Jesus and talking like Jesus.
Flowers for the Sanctuary
Anyone who is interested in providing flowers to decorate the Sanctuary during a worship service, whether in memory of someone or in celebration of someone, may do so by calling the church office for more information.

What our culture calls a “funeral” is in the Reformed Christian tradition more appropriately called “A service of Witness to the Resurrection.” If the service is to be held on the property of New Hempstead Presbyterian Church, it shall be under the jurisdiction of the Session of New Hempstead Presbyterian Church. Because the pastor (Teaching Elder) of the congregation is trained in Reformed Theology and Reformed Liturgical practice, s/he shall work with the family of the deceased to ensure that our Reformed tradition in upheld. S/He shall be responsible for the order of service, in consultation with the family. For more information, see our Funeral Policy.
