Advent & Christmas at Old Bergen Church 2020

November 29, 2020 @ 8:00 am - December 31, 2020 @ 5:00 pm EST

Long lay the world in sin and error pining, till He appeared and the soul felt its worth. A thrill of hope – the weary world rejoices, For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn! For some reason, this year I particularly resonate with these words from the familiar Christmas carol, O Holy Night. It seems like the whole world has been waiting in weariness. And yet, this season there is a new sense of hope. Word of new vaccines…

Food Pantry – January 30

December 14, 2020 @ 9:00 am - January 30, 2021 @ 12:00 pm EST

We are grateful that even in the pandemic, Old Bergen Church has been able to maintain its Food Pantry ministry. We do so with fewer volunteers present, and limited clients in the building at a time - following state and county guidelines. In this time of hardship over half of the people who come to our Food Pantry are seeking food assistance for the first time in their lives. Our next Food Panty distribution will be January 30th from 9:00…

We miss you, and wish you God’s blessings in the new year – hoping that this year will bring us…

Extra Commitment 2020

December 29, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm EST

When the Trustees kicked off  the Extra Commitment 2020 Campaign, we had no idea what the year 2020 was going to bring! While many congregations have suffered terrible losses because members no longer meet for worship in person or participate in the regular practice of collecting an offering each Sunday, we have learned new and creative ways of supporting the church’s ministry. It has not been easy, but we are grateful for many of the members’ faithful generosity this past…
