10:00 AM
A special Christmas service will be held on Christmas morning. We will begin by gathering in front of the church, weather permitting, for a brief prayer and then walking to Conkling Hall as we sing "O Come, O Come Emmanuel". The remainder of the service will be in Conkling Hall, where we will be toasty and warm as we sing familiar carols and once again hear the Christmas story of the birth of Jesus. Anyone who would prefer not to walk may go directly to Conkling Hall, where church members will be on hand for seating and assistance.

Hot cider and home-baked goodies will be served during a brief time for fellowship following the service.

Everyone is welcome. Please invite your house guests, friends, family and neighbors.


We are offering poinsettias for purchase in honor of or in memory of loved ones. They will decorate Conkling Hall for the service, as they decorated the church last year, and may be taken home by the donors afterward to enjoy for the rest of the season. The names of donors and those being honored or remembered will be included with the program that will be distributed at the service.
Each plant is $20, tax deductible. Send an email to with your name, address, phone number, email address, number of plants, whether they are in honor of or in memory of and the name of the honoree. Payment may be sent to the church at P.O. Box 47, Rensselaerville, NY 12147 or made following the service. 

Click on the  "Christmas Service 2013" on the left sidebar to see how beautifully the church was decorated with the poinsettias. 

Please Purchase A Hymnal

The Presbyterian Church USA has published a new, updated hymnal, "Glory to God". Unlike our current hymnal, the language is inclusive, it contains hymns and songs from around the world and it is lighter. We replaced the old green and blue hymnals with this new one by "borrowing" church operating funds..  Won’t youhelp 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!
