The Chapel at Croton Falls
Building a Community of Spiritual Seekers
   HOME
The Chapel at Croton Falls is a member of the Presbyterian Church (USA)
 
We are a community of people who wish to deepen our faith by exploring what it means to be a Christian in today's world, as well as opening our doors to the wisdom of other faith traditions.
 
Our beautiful little Chapel is adorned with stained glass windows, pews in a circular arrangement and an organ.

Join us for Sunday worship each week at 10:30 a.m.

 
 
Our Team
Headed by Pastor Hans B. Hallundbaek, the Chapel has a dedicated and diverse team to offer a Christian message each week and an Interfaith Sunday once a month.

  • Rev. Gary Deinstadt, CLP Candidate, Pulpit Supply
  • Rev. Hans B. Hallundbaek, Pastor
  • Rev. Deborah Moldow, Interfaith Minister
  • June Tompkins, Associate Pastor and Director of Music
 
 
Interfaith Sundays
 
Rev. Deborah Moldow orchestrates a monthly Interfaith Sunday, often on the 3rd Sunday of the month. Presenters share wisdom from their religious traditions on a common theme in a variety of ways, including readings, prayer, chanting, movement, drumming, and joyful music.
 
 
 
 
Special Occasions
 
The Chapel hosts traditional services on Christmas eve and Easter Sunday, as well as unique events such as a Winter Solstice celebration, a Symphony of Peace Prayers in May and our annual Peace Pole re-dedication around the UN International Day of Peace.
 
Various classes and study groups meet regularly at the Chapel, and a concert series called LIVE AT THE CHAPEL is underway. Please see the SCHEDULE for updates. 

And we had a very special weekend in May 2014! See a brief video below.
 

 
The Chapel is also a lovely space for weddings and other services. Please contact Pastor Hans Hallundbaek at hanshall@optonline.net for further information.
 
Comments
 
Hans:
I thought today's service remarkably poignant. 

It was -- for me, at least -- the right combination of liturgy and discussion among spiritual seekers.  

You have gathered in Croton Falls a special group of people. They will hopefully grow in number.

Dear Deborah,
I was deeply touched this morning by the spiritual connections you fostered and generated through ceremony and fellowship.  My hope and intention to understand and reconcile with certain family members, both alive and dead, was nourished greatly by the speakers, music, and prayer/ceremonies.  

I feel blessed to be part of these amazingly powerful and transformative ceremonies. Know that your work and loving efforts are penetrating the hearts and souls of many including mine.  

With love and peace,
Judyth Woolfe  

What you do here every week in this seasoned chapel – and what June has chosen to do with her life – is counter–cultural craziness. As the world feasts on too much stuff, you break bread and sip wine – nourished by simplicity. As the world writhes in violent war and terror, you practice peace. As the world divides along bitter religious and ethnic lines, you celebrate the beauty of pluralism – and the common languages of all the religions of the world. And in a culture that insists that big is better, you celebrate the intimacy and love of a small faith community. Like a mustard seed – almost too small to see – you have become a witness to many that Jesus people can slowly but surely change the world. 

Rev. Susan Andrews, Hudson River Presbytery
