Dear Members and Friends of New Hackensack,

The end of another School year is approaching and with it comes thoughts of vacations/family gatherings/swimming/summer picnics and many other outdoor activities. Our country and our world is going through challenging times right now. I know that for many of our church family, this summer will be different than previous summers. Many of us long for yester – year. We yearn for the good old days when life was so predictable. Many people I speak with are choosing not to watch the nightly news anymore. The response from some is, “It’s too upsetting!” In the hallway that leads from fellowship hall to our beautiful sanctuary is a banner which reads: “May you walk closely to God! We may not know what the future holds... but we do know who holds the future.” Yes, this is a reminder that God holds our future – not our government, not our nightly news, not the chaos of our world – But God holds the future.

This is why I believe it is so important to come to church on Sunday mornings, and worship God. In church we find peace, we find hope and love, and in church we find grace for today and tomorrow. As we end another school year and turn our sights on summer and all the activities that summer brings, please remember the church, God’s House, is always calling us to a place where there is a ‘peace which passes all understanding’. Our summer worship schedule is on the following page. I look forward to seeing you in worship.

Blessings to you and your family,

Rev. Keith W. Tamlyn
