Who We Are

The Patterson Community Church is a true community ministry that sees its mission as much inside the walls of the church as outside of them in the community.  The congregation is warm, welcoming, inclusive, and open to people of all backgrounds.  The Food Pantry provides an assortment of food and supplies to those in need within the surrounding community and the Blue Door Thrift Shop is patronized by many including those looking for a great buy but as well as those who truly benefit from having a source of inexpensive gently used clothing and housewares.  Formally a part of the PCUSA, Patterson Community Church is a member of the Hudson River Presbytery.

Our Pastor

David Frost has been serving as the church pastor since early 2009.  Prior to accepting the pastorate he was involved in both Youth and Music Ministry at the church since 1978.  His father, Rev. James Frost served the church from 1966 until his retirement in 1991.  David received his Master of Divinity Degree from New York Theological Seminary in the spring of 2009 and a Bachelor’s Degree in Philosophy from Eisenhower College in 1977.
