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

The Reformed Church of the Tarrytowns has a new program to serve middle school, high school and college age youth. It replaces “Wii Believe,” a weekly teen get-together at the church. The new program will consist of at least two scheduled events or activities per month, including onsite video games, movies, cooking and meals, as well as trips to New York City museums, parks, cultural events and theaters, visits to places of worship, seasonal sports, go-cart racing, and serving Christ in work projects, some with other youth groups. All activities will give participants the opportunity to explore, articulate and share their faith journey. Parents are invited to share suggestions for activities, to encourage their children to participate in the youth program, and to volunteer when help is solicited.
