Begins Thursday, October 1st

with Congregational Gatherings

October 1, 8, 15 via Zoom



“You, God, are my God, earnestly I seek you; I thirst for you, my whole being longs for you, in a dry and parched land where there is no water.” Psalm 63:1 (NIV)


Psalm 63 is a record of King David’s hungering and thirsting for the love of God. From his boyhood, he understood how utterly dependent we are upon God for life and liberty. Also, he knew the satisfaction of seeking the heart of God. God longs for us to seek his face for he has created us to be the objects of his loving kindness.


October begins our “Season of Prayer”. With the same spirit as King David, we as a church want to express our hunger and thirst for God.


What is the “Season of Prayer?” The ”Season of Prayer” is FRC’s two week consecration to seek the heart of God through united and consistent prayer. The prayer is united because Pastor Dominick and the Elders and Deacons are calling the entire FRC body to consecrate themselves to participate in this year’s “Season of Prayer”. The prayer is consistent because we will be saturating ourselves in prayer for two weeks. We will be praying together and individually in our private devotions.


Why are we seeking God? During the “Season of Prayer”, we are seeking God because he is delighted when his people seek his face. Further, it is our heart’s desire to honor God as the object of our deepest affection and the ruler of our destinies. In his presence, there is fullness of joy. Also, the Word of God tells us that a sincere seeking of God brings renewal, a fresh release of the Holy Spirit’s power, and guidance as we seek to hear his voice and do his will.


How long is the “Season of Prayer”? The “Season of Prayer” begins Thursday, October 1st and ends Thursday, October 15th.  Because of Covid, we will be meeting via Zoom for three consecutive Thursdays; October 1, 8, and 15 at 7:00 p.m. A Zoom link will be sent out on Thursday afternoons as a reminder to join us that evening.  


What is my part in the “Season of Prayer”? There are two things that are important for you to do during the “Season of Prayer”. First, commit to seeking God and praying for FRC each day with the Devotional from October 1 through the 15th. Second, join us in our united prayer gatherings via Zoom each Thursday, October 1, 8 and 15 at 7:00 p.m.. 



Welcome to the FRC website, and thanks for taking the time to check us out. We are a Christ-centered Spirit-filled church ever seeking to live into the love of God, our Father. Please explore the site and find out more about the exciting work God is doing at FRC. Of course, the best way to get to know us is to worship with us 10:30 Sunday morning or visit one of our Bible studies or small groups or serve others at one of our compassion ministries. Whichever way, we would love to meet you and extend a warm welcome! God bless you, and thanks again for stopping by.


The mission of the First Reformed Church of the Palisades is to exalt Christ, love God with every part of our being, love our nieghbor as we would love ourselves, proclaim the gospel, and go and make disciples.


We believe that God is and that He rewards those who diligently seek Him. (Hebrews 11:6) Therefore, we believe that what God teaches us about Himself, His Son, the Holy Spirit, the Bible, and humanity are essential for faith and practice.


Jesus taught us that selfless love of God, our neighbor, and seeking first His Father's Kingdom are sure signs that we are Christ-followers and filled with His Spirit. We value every virtue that Jesus said we would have if we are His followers and filled with His Spirit.

Reformed thought teaches that the whole ministry of Christ is found only when the whole congregation, including the elders, deacons, and ministers, is called to serve. The three offices-- elder, deacon, and minister--complement each other and together are described as making up the pastorate of a local congregation. It has been customary to call the minister "pastor," and that is appropriate. But the pastorate, the ministry of leadership, is only complete when all three offices work together, when they are mutually supportive and mutually accountable.

I feel truly blessed to be able to serve the Lord, here at FRC. A multi generational church that's such a blessing for nurturing younger parents, like me. Also great for raising up new believers.  FRC isn't only where I work, it's my church home where I come to worship! A place where all prodigal children are accepted!

At FRC we are REAL. We make mistakes, we forgive, we have patience, we have fun and give hugs.  But most of all, we give LOVE!
