A community of faith

We gather as friends to grow more deeply in faith, to educate our children in the Good News of a loving Savior, and to worship an Almighty God.

Come as you are

People from many different traditions have a spiritual home in the Reformed Church of the Tarrytowns. We come together before God and one another just as we are.

Steeped in history

Our congregation began in 1697 in the storied Old Dutch Church of Sleepy Hollow, made famous by Washington Irving's "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow." We still worship there on summer Sundays.

Worship Schedule

We meet at 10:30 a.m. Sundays at the Clock Church, Tarrytown.

Youth Program

Children experience God's love in learning and social activities.

Discipleship

We grow in faith through prayer, study, music and service.

Welcome

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

-- Rev. Jeffrey Gargano

He Is Risen Indeed!

Spring at the Clock Church

Spring has arrived at the Clock Church. Flowers are blooming, the banner announcing Easter services is out, and a couple sit on the porch rail enjoying the sunshine before the Palm Sunday concert.

 

 

 

What It Means to Be a Church

The Reformed Church of the Tarrytowns formally welcomed ten new members on March 9. The growing membership, and a 2014 budget that "reflects serious commitment to ministry, outreach and care of our property," writes Pastor Jeffrey Gargano in his latest newsletter, " point to the way that together you carry out meaningful ministry within the life of our community. And, of course, that's what it means to be a church: to grow together, to grow in affection and care for one another, to serve wherever God gives us opportunity, to be examples of our faith to our children and encourage their spiritual growth, to welcome all in a spirit of fellowship. And most of all to love God with heart and soul."

Clock Church's Tiffany Window Is Included in Exhibit

Tiffany Windows Exhibit FlyerThe John Knox Allen Memorial Window in Randall Lobby is featured in a new online exhibit of Louis Comfort Tiffany's spectacular, yet uncommon, landscape windows located in the Hudson River Valley. The exhibit is sponsored by the Hudson River Valley National Heritage Area. 

Louis Comfort Tiffany is famous for his stained glass windows, most of which were designed for houses of worship. The First Reformed Church iof North Tarrytown installed its Tiffany Window in 1930, in honor of the Rev. Allen, who served as its pastor for fifty years. In 1991 the window was removed when First Reformed merged with the Second Reformed Church of Tarrytown. The window was in storage until 2011, when, thanks to generous donors, including the late John Vydareny, among others, the new window was installed in Randall Lobby, located adjacent to the Clock Church sanctuary. See the complete list of Tiffany windows in the exhibit website. Visitors are welcome to visit Randall Lobby. Call the church office to check opening hours: 914 631-4497.

Why It's Called the Clock Church

ClockTarrytowners have long marked time by the 1877 clock in the church tower at 42 N. Broadway. Last year, the antique clockwork was brought down to the church narthex and installed for all to see. Restored and fully functioning, this beautiful artifact from a bygone era rests on a wrought-iron stand inside a glass case. The vintage mechanism that controls it is made up of gears and levers, flywheels and cables, which on the hour bounds into action in a whir of activity. Visit at the top of the hour and watch time fly!

 

 

 

New in Town?

The Reformed Church has been engaged in the Sleepy Hollow and Tarrytown community since 1697. The first meeting of the YMCA was held here, and the local Boy Scout Troop has had its home here for more than 60 years. Our New Beginnings Nursery School provides children with a great early educational opportunity in a loving and gentle environment. Five recovery groups meet in our building. We host concerts and recitals throughout the year, and our congregation supports the local food pantry, the Midnight Run, and several denominational ministries. We would be honored for you to join us on a journey of faith and service as we grow together.
