Steeped in History

Our congregation began in 1697 in the Old Dutch Church of Sleepy Hollow, made famous by Washington Irving's "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow." We worship there on summer Sundays.

A community of faith

We gather as friends to grow more deeply in faith, to educate our children in the Good News of a loving Savior, and to worship an Almighty God.

Come as you are

People from many different traditions have a spiritual home in the Reformed Church of the Tarrytowns. We come together before God and one another just as we are.

Meet Us at Old Dutch This Summer

We're the continuing congregation of the Old Dutch Church of Sleepy Hollow, established in 1697. We worship in the historic church each summer. We invite you to join us at Old Dutch at 10 a.m. Sunday. We'd be delighted to meet you there.

Welcome

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 10:00 a.m. at our summer home, the Old Dutch Church of Sleepy Hollow, at 430 North Broadway, Sleepy Hollow, N.Y.

You're  also welcome to just stop by the church office at the Clock Church in Tarrytown, at 42 North Broadway, where you can find me almost any morning.

Reaching Out

The church is engaged in a number of Christian outreach initiatives, including:

  • Oman Mission: The church is a full partner in a historic mission in the Sultanate of Oman. 
  • Disaster relief: For example, fundraising for earthquake assistance in Haiti
  • Mission Trip: One trip (to the Dominican Republic) has been completed and more are planned.
  • Food Pantry: Throughout the year we donate hundreds of pounds of food to the Community Coalition Food Pantry.
  • Midnight Run: Taking food, clothing and toilet articles to the homeless in New York City.
  • Boy Scouts of America Troop and Pack 22: The church's long-time sponsorship has allowed Scout programs to flourish, giving many opportunities for individual growth in body, character and spirit in a group setting. The boys are often engaged in community service and outdoor activities.
  • Old Dutch Church: Concerts on the Noack Tracker organ, summer tours, autumn fests and "Legend" readings, special services such as candlelight services on Christmas Eve  and Good Friday and an Easter sunrise service.
  • First Sunday Brunches, Community Christmas Dinner, participation in Third Friday events in the village, Thanksgiving baskets, gifts to the Humane Society and Neighborhood House, donations to Pinwheel Project, carol singing and much more!
  • Meeting space: We provide space at very low cost for community events and organizations.

Open Hours at Old Dutch

The Old Dutch Church will be open this summer for sightseeing visits from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Saturdays, and for one hour after worship on Sunday. Worship is from 10-11 a.m. A volunteer will be present to talk about and answer questions about the church's colonial Dutch origin, its role in Washington Irving's "Legend of Sleepy Hollow," its connection to the Revolutionary War and its importance in the history of the area.

VBS Announcement: No Bible School This Summer

There will be no Vacation Bible School at the Reformed Church of the Tarrytowns this summer. We hope to resume VBS next year.

New in Town?

The Reformed Church has been engaged in the Sleepy Hollow and Tarrytown community since 1697, first at the Old Dutch Church of Sleepy Hollow and continuing at the Town Clock Church in Tarrytown. The first meeting of the YMCA was held here, and the local Boy Scout Troop has had its home here for more than 60 years. Our New Beginnings Nursery School provides children with a great early educational opportunity in a loving and gentle environment. Five recovery groups meet in our building. We host concerts and recitals throughout the year, and our congregation supports the local food pantry, the Midnight Run, and several denominational ministries. We would be honored for you to join us on a journey of faith and service as we grow together.
