We're glad to meet you here, but candidly, we'd much prefer to meet you in person. Consider this my invitation to join us on Sunday mornings, when we worship at 10:30 a.m. at the Town Clock church, 42 North Broadway, Tarrytown, NY 10591. You're also welcome to just stop by the church office, where you can find me almost any morning.

On Nov. 27 we will carry out our second "Midnight Run" of 2015. This is a ministry that brings food, clothing and human contact to those who live on the streets of Manhattan. To prepare for it, the church welcomes donations of warm clothing, mostly for men, in good condition, especially jackets, jeans, sweaters, hoodies, boots, sneakers, socks, long underwear, gloves and toiletries. In mid-November, please bring your donations to the church so they can be sorted for distribution. We'll also be packing lunches to hand out during the run on Nov. 27. Volunteers to help sort or pack lunches are welcome.
