  Welcome, Announcements, and God's Greeting

Drawing Near to God

  Call to Worship  (Responsive)  Based on Ephesians 5:8-14
We are called to be the children of light.
       We come to worship to be renewed in our faith

               that our light might ever shine.
The light of Christ is found in all that is good and right and true.
       We gather for worship that we might gather ourselves

               to do what is good and right and true to Christ.
All: We come to worship to celebrate and give thanks to God.

               Let us lift our voices in praise!

*Hymn of Celebration and Thanks  (Insert)                            Come Sing, O Church, in Joy


Allowing God to Shape Us

  Call to Confession

In spoken word and silent thought, unfold your prayer to our God who is our shelter and strength.

  Prayer of Confession  (Responsive) 

Holy God, we bear your holiness. You sowed your love in the depths of our being. You promised to be with us always and sent us out with Good News. How hesitant we have been with love and how timid our voice. How doubting has been our heart. We have allowed your holiness and promises of provision to give way to fear and anxiety and entitlement. Repeatedly, we hold possessions in higher regard than our neighbor, and the influential higher than the needy. O, Lord forgive us . . .

[Moment of Silent Confession]

Faithful God, forgive our wavering trust, our timid hope, our shaky creeds.

Restore our place in your family - loved, blessed, and sent forth. In the name of Christ, our hope and joy. Amen.

  Assurance of Forgiveness  (Responsive)  Hosea 11:8-9

Hear these words of Scripture: God says, "My heart is changed within me; my compassion grows warm and tender. I will not execute my fierce anger ... for I am God and not a man, the Holy One among you, and I will not come in wrath." Indeed, God comes to us in Christ Jesus, offering us forgiveness and new life. Hear the Good News: In the name of Jesus Christ, our sins are forgiven.

       Thanks be to God Amen.


Coming before God’s Open Word

  Children’s Sermon and Prayer of Blessing  (Unison)

Father, bless these children with the knowledge that you have adopted them in love. Enable them to experience all the spiritual blessings they have in Christ Jesus, and to think and act always in ways befitting a child of God.  

  Prayer for Illumination

  Scripture                                                                                                   1 Peter 2:4-10 (p. 857)

  Sacrament of Communion


                                                                                                    THE MEANING OF THE SACRAMENT

Brothers and Sisters in Christ, we come to the table of our Lord in Remembrance, Communion, and Hope. 

We come in Remembrance of our Lord Jesus Christ, who was sent into the world so we might be saved through him.

We come to be in Communion with this same Christ who has promised to be with us always, even to the end of the world.

We come in Hope, believing that this bread and cup are a pledge and foretaste of the feast of love in the kingdom to come.

Since by his death, resurrection, and ascension Christ has obtained for us the life-giving Spirit who unites us all in one body,

so we receive this Supper in true love, mindful of the communion of saints.

                                                                                                                    THE INVITATION

This is the feast of the Lord’s Table, in which all who profess the Lordship of Christ in their lives are invited to share.  Come, for all things are now ready.

        COMMUNION HYMN #448 (Verses 1 & 2)  Jesus I Come

                                                                                                                       THE COMMUNION PRAYER

Let us lift up our hearts and give thanks to the Lord our God.

It is holy and right to lift up our hearts and give God thanks and praise.

It is with joy that we give thanks to you in all times and places, Almighty and Everlasting God. You have shown the fullness of your love by sending to us Jesus Christ our Lord, made flesh for us, for our salvation, and for reconciliation with you.  For this precious gift of your Son, we worship and sing praise to you, O God:

Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!

All thy works shall praise thy name in earth, and sky, and sea.

Holy, holy, holy! Merciful and mighty! God in three persons, blessed Trinity!

Most righteous God, we remember in this Supper the perfect sacrifice offered once on the cross by our Lord Jesus Christ for the sin of the whole world.  In the joy of his resurrection and expectation of his coming again, send your Holy Spirit upon us, that we may offer ourselves to you as holy and living sacrifices, and proclaim this mystery of the faith:

Christ has died! Christ is risen! Christ will come again!

As this grain and these grapes are gathered from many fields and hills into one loaf and one cup, to be to us the communion of the body and blood of Christ, grant also that your whole Church may be joined together in him, attain unity in the faith, and soon be gathered from the ends of the earth into your Kingdom. Even so, come, Lord Jesus! And now, as Christ taught us, we pray together:

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.  Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil: for thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever, Amen.


The Lord Jesus, the same night he was betrayed, took bread; and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to them, saying, “Take, eat; this is my body which is given for you: do this in remembrance of me."

(Distribution of the bread)

The bread which we break is the communion of the body of Christ.

After the same manner also, he took the cup when they had supped, saying, “This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.”

(Distribution of the cup)

The cup of blessing which we bless is the communion of the blood of Christ.

PRAYER after COMMUNION  (Unison)

Dear Lord Jesus, in the destructive chaos and upheaval of this world, we look for the solid foundation of your presence and truth.  Turn us away from those things that weaken our relationship with you. Keep us alive to your eternal power within us; shape us into effective disciples; and build us up to be strong and dedicated witnesses to your gospel until the day of your coming.   Amen.


   Offering/Offertory                       Monologue No. 3, op. 162                         Rheinberger

Today is Communion Sunday, which has been designated for the presentation of gifts, over and above regular giving, to the Benevolent Fund.  Please support this important ministry which provides assistance to needy church family and community members.     


  Doxology #809                                                  Praise God from Whom All Blessings Flow

 Praise God from whom all blessings flow. Praise him all creatures here below.

Praise him above ye heavenly host. Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

*Offertory Prayer (Unison)

Jesus, today we offer ourselves to you, the cornerstone of our lives, knowing that anything we build without you will not stand. In recognition of the truth that you are the uniquely perfect foundation of every undertaking and ministry of this church, we humbly present these gifts to you and to your service. Amen.  

  Pastoral Prayer

*Hymn of Hope #733                                                     We’ve a Story to Tell to the Nations

*Benediction, Blessing, and Response Hymn           My Friends May You Grow in Grace

  My friends, may you grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior.

My friends, may you grow in grace, and in the knowledge of Jesus Christ.

 To God be the glory, now and forever, now and forever, amen. (2x)

  Postlude                                    Monologue No. 1, op. 162                                Rheinberger         


ACTIVE KRC MEMBERS:  Please remember that nomination ballots for the 2017 Consistory officers are due TODAY.  Just drop them in the offering plate.



       TODAY, at 4 pm, Kinderhook Reformed Church will offer a Service of Lament for anyone who has lost someone to suicide or accidental overdose. This service is also for anyone currently dealing with mental health/substance use issues.  All are invited and welcome.



       A panel discussion concerning mental health entitled "Identification and Support – You’re Not Alone," is being planned for 6:30 pm Thursday evening, November 17.  Panel members being invited to participate include a Christian therapist and other experts in the mental health field, and representatives from the National Alliance for the Mentally Ill (NAMI) and Ichabod Crane School.

       Also being planned is the opening of KRC’s sanctuary between 4:30 and 6:30 pm daily the week of December 7 thru December 11 for anyone needing a place and time of quiet reflection during the holiday season. Personnel to open and close the church will be provided, along with an elder who can lend an ear to anyone who needs to talk. Child care will also be available so that parents who must have their children with them can be blessed by the peace of the sanctuary.    

       Please watch upcoming bulletins for further details regarding these events.



Dear Kinderhook Reformed Church Family and Friends,

       Thanksgiving Food Baskets will be given again to families who use the Valatie Ecumenical Food Pantry and request one. The baskets will contain everything needed for Thanksgiving dinner: turkey, potatoes, corn, green beans, stuffing, cranberry sauce, and brownies. The Pantry buys all food items in bulk, and if you would like to help financially, checks may be made payable to “Kinderhook Reformed Church” with “Thanksgiving Baskets” on the memo line and dropped into the offering plate. Thank you in advance for any help you are able to give. Any monies or food items left over after the baskets are distributed will be put into the pantry account or onto the pantry shelves.

                             Sincerely, Jean S. Norton, for the Valatie Ecumenical Food Pantry



Along with the Valatie Ecumenical Food Pantry’s financial appeal in support of its Thanksgiving Food Basket program, KRC’s Outreach Ministry is once again collecting Thanksgiving food items for the pantry. THE DRIVE, WHICH BEGAN LAST SUNDAY, WILL CONTINUE THROUGH NEXT SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 13. Please place your bagged donations in the foyer on or before that date. In the event you are not able to leave donated items by the 13th, you may do so on the 20th, which is the day baskets will be packed at St. John's Church. Suggested food items most needed are CANNED SWEET POTATOES and YAMS; INSTANT MASHED POTATOES; CANNED VEGETABLES; CRANBERRY SAUCE; TURKEY STUFFING; TURKEY GRAVY IN CANS OR JARS; BROWNIE MIX; PUMPKIN PIE MIX.  As a result of generous financial contributions and food donations to this ministry last year, more than 100 needy families in our local communities enjoyed great thanksgiving dinners, and KRC contributed substantially to this effort. Let’s make this year even better!  Bags for transporting your gifts from market to church, including shopping lists, may be found on the back table.



       Thursdays at 7 p.m., a new Bible study group meets in KRC’s main-floor Conference Room. Led by Jean Hacker, the group is examining the important doctrines of the Bible using the guide book, “A Study Book for Serious Students of Scripture.”  Chapters include:

              1.  The Church                                       6.  Prayer

              2.  The New Birth                                 7.  The Believer's Destiny in This Age of Grace

              3 .  Justification and Adoption     8.  About Angels

              4.  Repentance                                       9.  The Doctrine of Christ

              5.  Sanctification                                10.  About Satan

                                                 11.  Your Occupation Should Be Praising God and Blessing Others.

This study is appropriate not only for helping Christians who are young in their faith to greater maturity, but for providing seasoned believers with review and reinforcement of fundamental Christian principles.  All are cordially invited to join.

       Sunday, at 9:45 following the Early Worship Service, a new Bible-based study, “I Am a Church Member – Discovering the Attitudes that Make the Difference,” meets. This study, also led by Jean Hacker, focuses on discovering - or rediscovering - the privileges, responsibilities, and Christian discipleship involved in being a church member.  This same study is being offered in the 9 am Thursday morning Small Group Bible Study.  

       BEGINNING TODAY, the Adult Sunday School Class will begin a new study of the Book of Ephesians.  You are cordially invited to join this class, which meets at 11:15 in the main floor conference room each Sunday morning following the 10 am worship service.



All are welcome to attend a Bible study concerning four passages of scripture that may be applied to the inclusion of LGBT people in our church communities.  The Bible study will take place on Tuesday evenings from 7-8:30 in the library of the Reformed Dutch Church of Claverack.  It will be led by Dr. Nancy Hoag, psychologist, and Rev. Linda Miles, pastor of the Reformed Dutch Church of Claverack.  Listed below are the remaining dates and the passages that will be discussed: 

November 22 -  1 Corinthians 6   The Body as a Temple 

December 6 - Romans 14:1-15:7   Prohibition on Judging 

For more information, please call H or Pastor Linda at 845-430-3348.



       CITV’s enlarged 2016-2017 season continues with Royal Handel at 3 p.m. NEXT SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 13, at Kinderhook Reformed Church. Included will be Handel’s most celebratory works for chorus, orchestra, and soloists.

       On February 12th CITV returns to The School/Jack Shainman Gallery with 20th Century Music for Strings and Women’s Voices, including works by Vaughan Williams, Britten, Saint-Saëns, Poulenc and Foote. The women of the Broad Street Chorale will perform, along with soprano Amanda Boyd, soloist in Britten’s Les Illuminations. On April 2nd at Kinderhook Reformed Church Masterpieces from the Classical Age will feature Mozart’s magnificent Mass in c minor, as well as Haydn’s virtuosic Sinfonia Concertante for which the soloists will be principals of the Broad Street Orchestra: violinist Elizabeth Silver, cellist Erica Pickhardt, oboist Karen Hosmer, and bassoonist Cornelia McGiver.

       Suggested donation for all performances - $20.  For further information and assured seating go to www.concertsinthevillage.org or call 758-6869.


Regular Journal updates will be published in our Sunday bulletins

to keep the KRC Family aware and informed regarding

 the restoration work being done on the tower.

For the past week:

The cross was placed on the front of the church roof and the finials were placed on the turrets.

One of the 120' lifts was moved out and a 150' lift was brought onto the site.

The weathervane was removed using the 150’ lift.  After an up-close look, the contractor  is confident  the weathervane can be restored. Therefore, we should not have to replace it with a new weathervane, which we had been prepared to do if necessar

The first coat of paint was placed on the floor at the bell level.

The replacement wood trim has arrived, and the contractor has begun replacing the missing and rotted trim sections.



     Our weekly offering this past Sunday of $3,412 was again well over our weekly need of $3,000 - Praise God!

     Many thanks to those who have recently made substantial gifts toward bringing our income more into line with expenses, and to our regular contributors who “doubled up” on their giving to cover the Sundays they missed. Stewardship Ministry continues to urge everyone to give prayerful consideration to how they might adjust their giving to help keep income at a level that will meet daily operating expenses.   

                                                                                             Inspired by the abundance with which the Lord has blessed us,

 let us continue, as his faithful stewards, to be ever mindful of the need

 to maintain a weekly offering sufficient to cover our commitments.
