    I have searched and searched and doubt I'll find one but here goes. Looking for a Reformed church preferably Dutch type liturgy but can go Presbyterian (not Baptist) for possible membership if they'll have us or even to visit from time to time. Upstate NY has a rich heritage what a shame you can not find a good church within a hundred miles.

    12401-1503 Area code
    90 miles north of NYC


    Thanks,

    You are 64 miles (+/-) from the OPC in Schenectady, 85 from Amsterdam, NY or Newtown, CT, 90 from Westchester.

    If its any consolation, I used to drive 70-80 miles to the nearest OPC, which was basically the nearest anything Reformed, when I lived in upstate NY (well north of your area, other side of Adirondacks), so I know what you are talking about.

    There is an RP church in Housatonic Mass. that I have preached at. It is a small plant and one family drives east from Albany. It is a VERY godly group and they have great fellowship all Lord's Day.

    Email me privately if you want contact info. If I lived in the area, I would be more than pleased with worshipping with them each Lord's Day. I wrote a report for my congregation the last time I preached there- if you are interested in it, I can email it to you.

    A very great congregation with a heart for the Gospel in New England.

    I google mapped it- it is only 34 miles.

    Here is their website! Tell them I said hello if you go.

    Your best bet is to look north though I'm not sure how far (presbyterian? :)) you are willing to go. Schenectady has an OPC. Ballston Spa has an ARP. There are several PCAs in the Capital District area.

    Or... How about this URC?

    I went to the website...frankly, I like the church. I'd give it a try. None closer, right? Pastor looks like a nice young man. Graduate of WTS-West.

    (I grew up in and around NYC, went to school in Schenectady and Albany too before moving to California. This was way before I knew the Lord, or even what Presbyterian meant except for old NYC churches.)

    So far it looks like one of these. All seem reasonably sound so I don't think there will be any monkey business and all are between 70 and 80 miles away. :wow: I'm partial to the one in Warwick then to the one in Massachusetts. My wife is interested in the HR church because she thinks they may wear head coverings.
