250th Anniversary Sunday
On Sunday, September 30, the English Neighborhood Reformed Church celebrated our 250th consecutive year of ministry! What a wonderful and blessed day it was!
It all began with a special worship service at 11:00 AM, where the Reverend James Brumm preached a message of God's faithfulness to this congregation throughout the years. Former ENRC minister, Hank Lay attended, as did Classis Executive Minister, Jon Norton, and may other friends form the Classis of Greater Palisades.
Mayor Anthony Suarez and members of the Ridgefiled Council members, James Kontolios, Lauren Larkin and Dennis Shim presented a Proclamation. New brass altaerwear was dedicated in memory of Rev. Carol Vanderberg, and rededicated our 225 year old sanctuary to the continued service, and glory of of God.
Afterward, everyone enjoyed a BBQ, entertainment by the Patriot Brass Ensemble and historic re-enactments by the Hackensack-based historic group, John Outwater's Militia.
The weather could not have been better, and the Lord blessed us with a day of grateful praise, joyful celebration, and joining together as a community, just as we have done for 250 years! Praise be to GOD!
When you drive by the church, you will notice our historic cemetery, which includes headstones that date back to the Revolutionary War. Located between Edgewater Ave an the Hendricks Causeway, the church's cemetery still has burial sites available and is open to persons of all denominations. Contact our church's secretary for more information.

"A RICH HISTORY; A NEW BEGINNING"
Serving the community in the name of Christ since 1768
OUR MISSION IS HELPING PEOPLE FIND THEIR WAY BACK TO JESUS.
We’ve seen the transformation happen – people who began the journey full of doubt and uncertainty become secure in the knowledge of Jesus' call in their life and His desire to show them all that they were meant to be. The change may start slowly – in a Bible Study class or during worship perhaps – but once it begins, we are never the same. The Lord calls us by name, He knows our fears and anxieties, but through His love and the love of a faith community, we begin to understand just how incredibly loved we are by God, and that love then informs everything we are.
Take the first step toward your new journey – join us for worship this weekend!
