The Pastor's Pen

All shall give as they are able, according to the blessing of the Lord, your God, that he has given you.”


                          Deuteronomy 16:17


Our 150th Anniversary Year has gotten off to a wonderful start with at least one anniversary event each month.  We have dug through our history and our artifacts to become better acquainted with our history; joined in joyous worship to celebrate the occasion; our Deacons have refurbished our church house kitchen; we have been blessed with visits from the highest officials in our denomination; our Worship Committee has organized a wonderful series of chapel events for the summer; and, our youth are at work planning a gala church picnic for the Fall.  Through all these activities we have been humbled by the foresight of our founders and the depth of devotion of the generations that followed them in building a church dedicated to proclaiming Christ and serving others in mission.

Indeed, we have been heirs to a great legacy and we are now challenged to provide for the generations that will follow us.  The Session, joined by the Board of Trustees and the Worship Committee, will soon be in touch with you about a capstone project for our 150th Anniversary observance.  They will describe and enlist your participation in the “150th Anniversary Capital Campaign.”

The goals of this campaign are twofold: to replace the carpet in the sanctuary, sprucing up our place of worship; and to rebuild our Major Maintenance Endowment to provide for the continued stewardship of our building and grounds.  The plan is to contribute twice as much to future needs as we spend in upgrading our sanctuary.  We will thereby honor our heritage as well as covenanting with the future.  Our goal is to raise $30,000 in this capital campaign.

My hope is that each of us will prayerfully consider the place and meaning of the church in our lives and contribute as we are able to the future of Christian witness through the Presbyterian Church at Tenafly in the years to come.



In Faith,



Our Church
