January 2nd 2021-SABBATH OF PRAYER AND FASTING. Join us in prayer which is communion with the Lord. Coming before the Creator of the Universe to know Him and to share your heart with Him. Fasting is another way to do this, the act of refraining or abstaining. This could involve refraining from food, but it can also be abstaining from electronics, media, an action, or something of your choice. This act of prayer and fasting together creates a space of your life away from an action or distraction and is spent in communion with the Lord God.
TITHE AND OFFERING- MALACHI 3:10
Please remember that even now, the church relies on your help to finish the work of the gospel in all the world as we are commissioned to do. (Matthew 28:18-20)
FROM THE PASTOR'S DESK...
Started in the late 1920’s as a mission, this 100 year old congregation, the Berea SDA Church (NY) located at 67 South Broadway in Nyack has grown, through much prayer and hard work. Even now, almost 100 years later, God’s work in this community continued. We invite you to join our family each Sabbath as we learn together- more about our Creator and Savior.
We are a faith based community rooted in the beliefs described by the Holy Scriptures. Growing out of scriptures that paint a compelling portrait of God, you are invited to explore, experience and know the One who desires to make us all whole-Our Lord Jesus Christ.
