The Outreach Council
is our Missions Council. The council works hard at trying to spread the
love of Jesus Christ to as many missions and organizations as they can.
That love comes in any forms: volunteer support, financial support,
needs collections or simply prayer. Numerous organizations from around
the world, the country and right in our own backyard have reaped the
benefits of the caring people of New Hackensack. The council responds
to special appeals from the Reformed Church World Service, providing
aid in times of national or international crisis, through the use of
special monetary collections. The council also works with Pastor Tamlyn
welcoming people to NHRC through new member classes. There are many
additional opportunities to serve for anyone who wishes to become
involved. An information sheet will be available at the Information
Center in the Gathering Area very soon. Please take a moment every
Sunday to look at the Outreach bulletin board located in the Hallway
between Fellowship Hall and the main kitchen. Letters of appreciation
are posted on it, as well as mission information from around the RCA.
The entire church family is considered part of this council. If you
have a heart for mission, and wish to "officially" join the council, we
welcome you. Always remember, when you drive out of the church parking
lot, you are entering The Mission Field. God Bless!!

Webster House on the fourth Sunday of each month. The 2015 sign up sheet is

Liberty Station (Hudson River Housing): They are in need of twin sheets and towels (new or nearly new). If you have any of these you wish to donate, please drop them in the food pantry boxes.
Castle Point Food Pantry: Regular food deliveries have been made to Castle Point by members of our Property Committee. The veterans at Liberty Station utilize the Castle Point Food Pantry IF they can get a ride.
Blood Drive: NHRC
holds a blood drive approximately every eight weeks.
Rural & Migrant Ministry:

for this well attended event.
DCSPCA: Food continues to be needed items. They are being hit with unwanted kittens so they are looking for kitten food and formula. Some of the kittens are bring brought in prior to 8 weeks which they are not ready for solid food yet. If you would like to make a monetary donation, simply make out a check and mail it to the DCSPCA or leave it with Hazel. They are now accepting shredded paper to be used for bedding for new fur parents and their babies.
