Summer Sundays

Please join us for Rite II Holy Eucharist (with sermon and hymns) at 9:00 am, followed by iced tea and lemonade.

Child care will still be provided all summer long in the nursery.

Interfaith Prayer Service Monday, May 2nd, 7:00pm at Rye Pres.

Candlelight_serviceIn light of the numerous tragedies that our community has experienced, there will be an interfaith prayer gathering in the sanctuary of Rye Presbyterian Church on Monday, May 2, at 7pm. We invite you to join us in this time of reflection, prayer, and candle lighting.

The main entrance to the sanctuary, facing Boston Post Road, will be open, and all are welcome.

According to Rev. Rachael Huntley, Rye Pres is gathering people “to acknowledge the multiple drug- and alcohol-related tragedies that our community has been experiencing. All are welcome…young, old, Catholic, Jewish, atheist, parents, students…anyone who wishes to participate in a time of reflection, prayer, and candle lighting.”

Lent 4, When I Was… Thirsty

IMG_0507This year during Lent, Christ’s Church is again meditating on Matthew 25:35-46 in which Christ told his disciples that when they serve the hungry, the thirsty, the stranger, the naked, the sick or the imprisoned they were serving Christ, himself.
Today, as it is Refreshment Sunday, we took a break and held a Pancake Breakfast at 9:00 am-  a perfect opportunity to catch up with friends old and new- and perhaps bring a friend to church!   You can see more pictures on our Facebook page by clicking on the picture above.
