Our Consistory has decided to once again close our building to the public through the month of January. All services will move online.
To worship remotely, you can do so on the church's YouTube channel where we live stream each Sunday or via our Zoom link. 

 
We are excited to invite you to the celebration of the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ at our virtual Christmas Eve Candlelight Service of Lessons and Carols on Thursday, December 24 at 8 p.m. 
Beautiful choral, organ, handbell and harp music help to  commemorate the birth of the Christ child.
You can watch the video below.

Deacon Michelle Hickey did a beautiful job leading us in worship and delivered her sermon on Laity Sunday:
Laity Sunday focuses on the celebration of the ministry of all Christians, especially those who aren't ministers of Word and sacrament. It offers a chance for members of all ages to pause and consider their own unique calling to ministry within the community of believers.
 


 
Second's After School Program
THE AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM HAS BEEN CANCELED UNTIL STUDENTS RETURN TO SCHOOL
We covet your prayers for the grand opening of our After School program on September 17.  We are creating a warm and welcoming place in which the youth (5th and 6th graders) of Hackensack can grow academically and socially.  If you would like to volunteer, please contact the church office.

We remember and give thanks for those members of the church who have gone before us to be with the Lord. We are comforted, as the Scriptures remind us, that both in life and in death we belong to the Lord. (Rom. 14:8).
 
 
We pray that God will make complete the union of our departed ones and Himself, and that we might one day share in the same eternal communion. We call to remembrance those members of the church who departed since we last observed All Saints Sunday:
