This is to inform you that as of today the consistory of The Reformed Church of Poughkeepsie is suspending all church events, including Sunday morning worship. This suspension will at least include the next two Sundays (March 15 and 22). 

How will we worship?

It is important we worship, support one another, and hear the preaching of the gospel. In order to meet that goal, Pastor Jason will provide a video...

On the first Sunday of each month we celebrate Holy Communion.  We hear proclaimed these amazing words each time, "No matter who you are or where you are in your life or faith, you are welcomed to the table because Jesus Christ invites you here." We mean that because that kind of welcome happened to us.

We have received an incredible welcome from God. Although we were at one time strangers to God, the doo...

Need is everywhere. There are opportunities to help our neighbors across the street, across the world, and across the waters. 

As a church family we seek to embody our faith, or as I grew up hearing in my small country church, "to put flesh to your faith." 

One of the calls of Jesus Christ is to embody your faith (showing the truen...

I'm wrapping up our office renovation. New paint on the wall. New light fixtures (efficiency!). I decided I would rip of the carpet in my office. I had a suspicion - based on the squeaking when I pace the floor (yes, I pace the floor when I talk on the phone. Getting those steps in!). I was confident I would find hardwood floors. If so, I would sand them down and place polyurethane on them and enjoy the...

Genesis 17 is bookended with re-naming. At the beginning Abram experiences a name change. At the end Sarai experiences a name change. In the middle, there is talk about circumcision. Was this an editing mistake or is there some way all of this goes together?

I've known 2 people who have changed their name. In their early 20s they reflected on their adolescence and the growth they experienced and they came...

Our Cultural Moment

This is not an easy chapter. It is a story that we would rather skip or forget altogether. The heroes (Abraham and Sarah) are callous in their treatment of Hagar, their Egyptian slave. No perfect feet walk the path of faith, as the saying goes, and the husband and wife are not exempt.

In our cultural moment where the headlines show us the span of abuse that has, is, and continues to exi...

Psalm 22 was quoted by Jesus at the end of his life when he said, "My God, My God, why have you forsaken me?" That's the first line of the psalm. Many believe that Jesus' point was to personally use Scripture to explain his feelings, so he knew that if he kickstarted the song everyone else would soon be singing the words -- or at least calling them into thought.

This psalm gets at the core of our relation...

We stand in a stream of Christianity that marks occasions and seasons with prayer, thanksgiving, and hope.  These rhythms turn our focus on eternal matters that we might otherwise neglect. 

This Sunday is All Saints Day and our attention is turned toward those of our church family who have passed away. We pray for comfort. We give thanks for the goodness we experience of our dearly departed, and we a...
