Rev. Glenn Van Oort has served our congregation faithfully for the past 2 years as Stated Supply Pastor. In that time, he has led worship, offered guidance to many of us, and visited the sick before COVID restrictions prevented this. He has decided to end his contract with us as of March 15th, 2021. He will be with us as worship leader 2 or 3 times this spring.
We will miss him and his lovely wife, Eileen. We wish them well as they enjoy a time of rest and possible travels to see family.
My wife and I want to thank the congregation of the First Reformed Church of Bethlehem for your most generous gift. The money will help support the future educational needs of our young grandchildren.
I’d like to introduce you to the two children you have helped. The younger one is a three year old boy named Clay. Clay likes dinosaurs and trucks. He also enjoys helping with the laundry.
Clover is seven years old. She likes dolls and takes gymnastics and is a Brownie Scout. Right now she wants to be a marine biologist but we expect that to change numerous times.
By the time the children are old enough to make use of the money, the funds should have grown considerably.
Thank you again for your generosity which serves as a blessing and a powerful reminder that God is present even in the midst of tragedy.
May God bless you all.
Pete and Ruth Pagerey
Offerings may be made on-line via Tithe.ly and the Give button below. These donations will be deposited directly into the church bank account. You have the option to give to either the General or Renovation Fund. Both Tithe.ly and the church will record your donations.
Tithe.ly deducts a small fee per credit card transaction (2.65% plus $0.30). You have the option to cover these fees, if you wish. You may also choose to have Tithe.ly automatically donate for you weekly or monthly.
As always, thank you for your generosity.
With the uptick in COVID-19 cases in Albany County, we have returned to worshipping outdoors. We will be broadcasting to the parking lot on 1590 AM. We also plan to provide the service on Facebook, either live streamed or after the service.
All of this is our best attempt to worship together safely. If circumstances change, we will adapt as well. We welcome any suggestions you may have.
We hope you'll join us as we "gather" online:
