A Brief History of Our Local Church
The Hartsdale Seventh-day Adventist Church was formed when two small congregations consolidated in the late 1960s. The Mount Vernon SDA Church had eight members who rented a Baptist church for Sabbath services, and the White Plains SDA Church’s 20 members had been renting a Pentecostal church. The two congregations came together at the Pentecostal church in White Plains under the name Central Westchester SDA Church.
After the consolidation, around 1970, one of the members approached a realtor with a binder/down payment, and contacted the Greater New York Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, which agreed to the purchase of a former Baptist church in Hartsdale. As of 1971, the congregation was meeting at Hartsdale as the Westchester SDA Church. By 1980, the church had been renamed Hartsdale SDA Church.
The Hartsdale SDA Church has been a beacon of light in our community for over 30 years. We are a multicultural fellowship of believers. And we love first-time guests!
Cranberry Lake Park
This event took place on October 29, 2016 at the Cranberry Lake Preserve park. The Hartsdale Seventh-day Adventist Church met at the park, shared a meal, Pastor Steven Siciliano presented an inspiring sermon, then the members hiked through the trails of the park. Besides great weather, it was also a beautiful day of spiritual fellowship.
Yes... we have a church parking lot!
