Proclaiming the Good News of God’s Grace
The Reformed Dutch Church of Claverack is a Christian fellowship proclaiming God’s love and the gospel of Jesus Christ—in our community and throughout the world.
Please join us for Sunday Service at 9:30 a.m.
The church’s beliefs conform to the Apostles’ Creed: “We believe in the trinity – God the Father, his Son Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit. The lessons on which we strive to live our lives are found in the Holy Scripture – the Bible, the final authority for our beliefs.” It describes its purpose as “to proclaim the Good News of God’s Grace’ and strive to increase the love of God in our midst and throughout the world.” It has roughly 200 members, and is part of the Columbia-Greene Synod of the Reformed Church in America’s Albany Classis. A monthly newsletter, The Fisherman, keeps congregants informed. In addition to Sunday services and school, it offers Bible study for adults, confirmation classes and a youth group. It is a sponsoring church of Camp Fowler, a Christian summer camp in the southern Adirondacks, and hosts local meetings of community groups like the Boy and Girl Scouts as well as Alcoholics Anonymous. Its handbell and vocal choirs perform in the community as well as at services. The church supports several prominent regional charities, including Habitat for Humanity, the Salvation Army and the AIDS Council of Northeastern New York. It has sponsored Reformed Church missionaries in Albania, Taiwan and Mississippi.
The Reformed Dutch Church of Claverack is the oldest institutional building in Columbia County. It is a brick church built in the mid-18th century and renovated and expanded twice in the 19th, reaching its present form in 1879. The congregation was founded in 1716. In 2001 it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places, along with several of its other buildings and cemetery. The dead buried there include one of George Washington’s aides and a former speaker of the state assembly.
