Old Dutch Church seeks to provide its members, young and old, with the best program for Christian education. Morning Worship Service is held at 10:30am every Sunday in the Sanctuary. The Children’s Message is a portion of the Service devoted to the youth of Old Dutch Church. Pastor Renee speaks directly to children on themes that are relative to their little world.
The Children's message concludes at around 10:50am which is when pre-school to High School aged children are dismissed from the service to attend Sunday School in Bethany Hall. Our new curriculum is called "Holy Moly!" and it is contemporary, high-energy and interactive! Every Spring there is Children's Sunday, an entire worship service devoted to the youth of the congregation. The students' talents and achievements are rewarded. There are no enrollment costs and ALL youth of the community are welcome! Join at any time! Please contact the Old Dutch Church office for additional information at 845.338.6759 or click here.
For the Confirmation of young people, Old Dutch Church follows Making Disciples, a one-on-one mentoring program. In addition to the reading, discussion and analysis portions of the material, there are Faith and Spirituality building activities and seminars that the mentors and confirmed engage in together. Among them, attending religious services such as a funeral or a baptism, and working on a community outreach project. When the Confirmation process has been completed, confirmands are received by the congregation as active members.

ADULT DISCUSSION GROUP
Adult Discussion Groups and bible studies meet regularly to discuss a variety of topics related to scripture and our daily lives. The group discussions typically focus on a familiar Christian theme which members interpret and question through active dialogue. This theme is later repeated during Pastor Renee’s sermon in the weekly Worship Service which begins at 10:30am every Sunday. Meeting schedules change so check with the office for additional info.
