THE PASTOR’S PEN...

Advent/Christmas 2019

This year, our Advent/Christmas theme is “God’s Faithfulness Revealed”. During this magical season of the year, we hear and read all kinds of reports of how God’s faithfulness is revealed to us. World weary shoppers drag home from yet another crowded mall, disheartened by the season’s commercialism and desiring to see how God is revealed to us with the birth of God’s son. Churchgoers sit amid hundreds of flickering candles at midnight services, hoping that the birth of Christ will offer a new found faith. We remember how God’s faithfulness is revealed to us once again, as we celebrate the ancient pilgrimage to a stable and a star, filled with awe by the beauty of the season.

The beautiful season of Advent concludes with our Christmas Eve Candlelight services on December 24th.

We begin with our very popular family- friendly candlelight service at 5:00 p.m. Followed by our Lessons, Carols, and Candlelight Service at 8:00 p.m. And then, we will gather at 11:00 p.m. for a more reflective/contemplative service with candlelight. Our Christmas Eve Special Offering this year will go to the Food Bank of the Hudson Valley. You may use the special envelopes in the pews or the Christmas Envelope in your box of church envelopes.

On behalf of the Consistory and staff of New Hackensack, I offer my warmest Thanksgiving/Christmas greetings to each of you. I look forward to seeing you in worship as we prepare ourselves to give thanks to God first, and welcome our newborn King at Christmas.

                                                                        In Christ's service,

                      Rev. Keith W. Tamlyn
