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
This sight of scaffolding on the church will soon be a thing of the past. Steeple repairs, under way since November, are finished and workers await only warmer weather to clean up the construction site. And soon after that, the clock will be chiming out the hours again for the village. Roof repairs are ongoing, and are expected to be completed by the end of January. Other recent work at the church includes installation of air conditioning in our community facility, Ammerman Hall. Expect cooler temps for Sunday brunches next summer!
While these repairs were going on at the Clock Church, the playground was also getting some repairs.
Pastor Jeff, aka "The Sermonator," shows off a Christmas present he received. It was all part of his children's sermon at the Jan. 5 worship service.

<The fall issue of RCA Today, the magazine of the Reformed Church of America, highlights Wii Believe, a popular weekly program for teens organized by Youth Director Moira Gargano. Wii Believe "came out of finding something for my son [now a ninth-grader] to do with other kids in the church," says Moira. At first a two-hour get-together on Friday nights to play Wii games, the program has expanded to four or more hours, to include dinner (sometimes prepared by the teens themselves, followed by clean-up). Occasionally Moira and helper Rob Wingate take the kids on day trips, such as York Lake, MA, last July, and to nearby slopes for sledding last winter. Nine teens from the church and friends regularly participate in Wii Believe. Read the story.
