Living Our Vision: Connecting to God, One Another and the World
Stewardship is about giving of our time, talents and financial support. We are blessed to have many loving caregivers that help with this work. Our success has been based on our belief that as good stewards, we have the responsibility to take care of all that God has given us. The Stewardship Commission endeavors to celebrate the good works of our church family, reach out to visitors and community help organizations, and plan diligently for the financial health of our congregation.
Generous God, help us
who have received so freely from you
to give as freely in turn so that we have the pleasure of giving
as well as the happiness of receiving.
Welcome New Members!
We were happy to welcome six new members into our church family on Sunday, March 18. A special thank you to Judy & John Chessa and Ruth Deemer for hosting such a delightful brunch.
We asked our new members to share a little about themselves to help us get to know them better.
Nancy Betz writes…I have been attending this church since I was 10 years old, and joined when I was 14. I am married for almost 52 years with three sons, two daughter-in-laws, and four grandchildren. Working and raising a family kept me away from church for a while, but now being a part of the church seems like coming back to a "family.” I find peace after attending. I retired after 24 years of being a Lakeland School secretary. Now I watch my younger grandchildren during the week, and this keeps me busy. Thank you to the congregation for such a warm welcome.
Jessica Mayes writes…I recently moved to Crompond with my family (husband Rob, 2-year-old daughter Veronica, a baby boy due on March 31, two cats and a goldfish). I'm originally from South Carolina, but mostly grew up in Bradenton, Florida (my husband was born and raised in Cortlandt Manor). I'm a real estate attorney in White Plains. I am a huge Florida Gators fan (especially football), and a Mets fan by marriage. I enjoy hiking/camping, reading British mystery novels, and am learning how to sew.
Andy and Kari Mavian write… We are glad to finally be official church members. As for a quick bio on us... Well, the basics are we live in Peekskill, our two sons Erik and Alex are 11 and 9, respectively. My wife, Kari, is the bread maker in the family. She is a regulatory director for a Swiss-based chemical/pharmaceutical company. She was born in Queens, but spent most of her youth in Virginia. Formerly, I was an environmental planning consultant, but for the past seven years I have been a stay at home Dad. I also come from further south, but only slightly, as I am from Ossining. As a family, we enjoy many outdoor activities and look forward to the warm summer months.
Cathy and Dick Talbot write…We moved to Chapel Hill in Peekskill in February of 2000 after 30 years in Hartsdale NY. We raised our daughters Victoria and Danise in Hartsdale. We are both retired and live with our dog Casey. Our family has grown and we have three grandchildren Kurt 14, Amanda 13 and Joe 9 years old. Cathy worked for 38 years for the Presbytery of Hudson River and Dick was in the diamond business .
We hope you will take a moment to introduce yourself to all of our new families and give them a chance to know you a better as we strengthen our connections to one another.
