It Takes A Village

Please Donate A Hymnal

The Presbyterian Church USA has published a new, updated hymnal, "Glory to God", which we are using. We replaced the old hymnals with this new one by "borrowing" church operating funds..  Won’t you help defray the cost by purchasing 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!
