Dear Members and Friends of New Hackensack Reformed Church,

The month of October is filled with many opportunities here at New Hackensack. First and foremost is our worship services on Sunday mornings. (Please see page 2 of this newsletter to see the October calendar of Sunday worship).

First, we will share in the Lord’s Supper on World Communion Sunday on October 7th. We will also begin our fall stewardship campaign on October 7th as we hear from our stewardship chair Elder Dave Merte during worship. Dave will introduce this year’s theme, as well as introduce our first Consecration speaker.

Then on October 14th, we will hear from one of our college members who was on a missionary trip this past summer. My message that day is entitled, “How Hard it is to be a Disciple of Jesus.”

The following Sunday, October 21st, we will have our Annual Consecration Sunday followed by a luncheon. On that day, we will be blessed to have the Rev. Amy Nyland, our New York Synod Executive Pastor as our special guest. Most of you remember that the Rev. Nyland was our Consecration Sunday preacher last year. We all enjoyed her message and look forward to having her back with us again.

In other news, our new youth group director, Trish Corbett will be meeting with our youth and coming up with a very active schedule for the fall. It is a joy to welcome Trish to our staff. Also, our Sunday School program is off to a great start with an average of 35 children in attendance every Sunday. Kris Rice is such a dedicated Sunday School Director, and has a very dedicated group of teachers who faithfully welcome our children every Sunday.

Please read through this newsletter, and know that you are invited to attend any of the ongoing activities here at New Hackensack Reformed Church. I am reminded of our 250th church logo, “Honoring the Past, Serving God in the Present, and Following God into the Future.”

I look forward to following God in the future with you!!

Rev. Keith W. Tamlyn
