Thanks to Brian Tricoli for sharing his wonderful talent by playing several pieces for us for solo handbells.

Deacon Michelle Hickey did a beautiful job leading us in worship and delivered her sermon on Laity Sunday:
Laity Sunday focuses on the celebration of the ministry of all Christians, especially those who aren't ministers of Word and sacrament. It offers a chance for members of all ages to pause and consider their own unique calling to ministry within the community of believers.

Upcoming Events 
Morning Bible Study
The morning bible study group meets in the Library every Tuesday at 10 a.m.  We hope you will come.
Noon time Prayer Service
Join us for a time of prayer and conversation with God Tuesday's in the Chapel.  We hope to see you there!
Chronological Bible Study
Thursday's at 7 p.m., where we will begin with Exodus 8:20.  We look forward to seeing everyone at this weekly event. Everyone is welcome to bring a friend.
Second's After School Program
We covet your prayers for the grand opening of our After School program on September 17.  We are creating a warm and welcoming place in which the youth (5th and 6th graders) of Hackensack can grow academically and socially.  If you would like to volunteer, please contact the church office.
Discipleship Discussion Series
Many people yearn to have a closer relationship with God and experience their faith in a deeper, more profound way.  In the book, Courage to Pray, Dr. William Brownson inspires us to invest ourselves in prayer and the joy in our growing experience of God Almighty.  The group will meet at 11:30 a.m. on September 23, October 7, 14, 21, November 4, 11, and 25.  Bagels will be served.  Books are available for $10.  Or you may download a free pdf version of the book


Our ministers, Reverends Anna and Dwayne Jackson

Wishing Reverend Roland Ratmeyer well on his last Sunday at Second Reformed. Thanks for being a good shepherd to us.
We will really miss you and Una.
We remember and give thanks for those members of the church who have gone before us to be with the Lord. We are comforted, as the Scriptures remind us, that both in life and in death we belong to the Lord. (Rom. 14:8).
We pray that God will make complete the union of our departed ones and Himself, and that we might one day share in the same eternal communion. We call to remembrance those members of the church who departed since we last observed All Saints Sunday:
Frank L. Conley
Charles F. Schneider, Jr.
Lucile Spinelly
Peter G. Banta
Alice Naprstek
Jackie Metropoulos
Carl Therkildsen
Marie Grumbrecht
George Arnold
Harry Leiding
Marie Lewis
Helen Hirtler
Walter Hickey
Walter Miller
Audrey Michel
Barbara Hickey
Eugene Hayden
Bill Wilson
