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.

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.

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.

Worship Locations

Sept.-June: "Clock Tower" church; summer at Old Dutch Church

Youth Program

Children experience God's love in learning and social activities.

How to Become a Member

If you've gotten to know our church and would like to "officially" become a member, there's just the simple formality required of saying "yes" to our yes. The Elders would love to meet with you and formally welcome you into membership. Then, on a subsequent Sunday, before the congregation, there is a simple ceremony of welcome. If you'd like to know more, or have questions, speak with Pastors Jeff or Julia or any of the Elders: Renee Chillemi, David Kim, Maria Canales or John Phillips.
