Rev. Eric Jackson
Pastor, Smith Memorial Congregational Church, Hillsborough, NH

Sermon: "Dig It"

The Rev. Eric Jackson is the newly-called Pastor of the Smith Memorial Congregational Church in Hillsborough, NH. Smith Church is a congregation that embraces theological diversity and a deep commitment to serving the community. Eric believes that Christianity is standing on the edge of time at the dawn of a new era. One of the things he enjoys as a Pastor is empowering faith communities to embrace the challenge of being a 21st century church that are living witnesses of the Gospel through theological innovation and being present at the heart of the community.


Eric has prepared himself academically by completing an M.Div. degree at The Theological School of Drew University. He also enjoyed completing a B.A. in Political Science at the City College of New York. Right now, Eric is walking through the trenches yet again to complete a Doctor of Ministry at the New York Theological Seminary in Transformative Leadership and Community Organizing.


Eric previously served as Acting Pastor of the Church of the Evangel, UCC in Brooklyn, NY Community Minister at Judson Memorial Church in New York City, and Assistant Pastor of the First Calvary Baptist Church in New York City.



We have added the sermon preached by our moderator, Rev. Alexandra Lusak on June 22. Find it on the Past Sermons page under 2014.

"Prayer for Peace", sent by the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), has been added to our Spiritual Sustenance page.

Please Purchase A Hymnal

The Presbyterian Church USA has published a new, updated hymnal. Unlike our current hymnal, the language is inclusive, it contains hymns and songs from around the world, the psalms are included and it is lighter. We would like to replace the old green and blue hymnals with this one but do not have the operating funds to do so.  Won’t you purchase one or more at $20 each, perhaps in honor of or in memory of a loved one? A personalized bookplate with your name as the donor and the honoree(s) will be placed inside each one. Click here to download a  form for your tax deductible hymnal(s) purchase. Use it for a gift to the church also. Please consider how our church has enriched your life and that of the Rensselaerville community and how necessary it is that it continues to do so. Thank you!
