We are an open, inclusive, and affirming More-Light Presbyterian congregation seeking to embody the radical, unconditional hospitality and love of God to whoever enters our doors.
All are invited to worship: seekers, the spiritual but not religious, believers, non-believers, and the uncategorized! We invite you to “come and see.” Come to Palisades and see if this sacred place is a faith community in which you can be nourished and challenged in your spiritual life.
Strawberry Festival- June 14
This year’s festival will take place on Saturday, June 14. The Deacons organize the many volunteers needed for success: bakers, servers, hullers, ticket-sellers, and setup and cleanup crews. This year’s festival will, as usual, also have activities for children, including face painting and the always popular pocket person (traditionally called the pocket lady, the title has appropriately evolved in recent times). The Strawberry Festival brings together neighbors from the area along with many returning old friends. It’s a great opportunity to help out, get to know others, and contribute to this long-standing Church tradition (and fundraiser). Sign-up sheets for volunteer activities will be available soon in the Parish House.
We raised over $6,300 that support three major umbrella programs: Presbyterian Hunger Fund, Presbyterian Disaster Assistance and Self Development of People programs.
The children raised $450 for People to People with their Spaghetti dinner.
Thanks to everyone who took part in our Easter Flash Mission Project working with the Greenbush Presbyterian Church Food Pantry. Whether you stood outside the Pathmark on a cold rainy March afternoon, created thirty bags of groceries with the confirmation class or donated food and food cards for those in need, your participation was very much appreciated.
Thank you to everyone who participated in our special anniversary events in October. We enjoyed a special dinner on October 19, 2013 at Confetti's in Piermont and shared a special worship service the following morning. Pictured below: Commisioned Lay Parish Associate Henry Shaw, former pastors Bruce Lanford, Sidney Lovett, Laurie Ferguson, Stanley Barlow, current pastor Angela Maddalone, and Ray Bagnuolo and Bob Chase.
