Meet our Pastor

A Greeting from Our Pastor

Robert W.   Fretz


Welcome to the Web Site of the Saddle River
Reformed Church. I hope you have enjoyed your
Virtual Tour of the people and ministry that takes
place within the walls of the Old Stone Church and the Minnick Memorial Educational Building. However, I also hope you see that our ministry goes far beyond the church’s 12 acres in Upper Saddle River. From Suffern to Allendale – Green Pond to Park Ridge, this fellowship serves the people of the congregation and theircommunities.

While the “Old Stone Church,” is rooted in the oldest serving denomination in New Jersey and New York (the Dutch Reformed Church in America, est. 1628) – our members come from diverse religious backgrounds and regional areas in North America, Europe, and Asia. The common interest of the congregation is based upon our desire to experience and express God’s love for his people.

A high priority for our members and friends is to know God’s Word through the written scripture and the presence of Jesus Christ within our fellowship. This takes place during Sunday worship, adult education and fellowship, children’s Sunday School, and our Youth Fellowship. From this personal and communal experience, our members live a trust filled life with God and with the people in their lives.

This Virtual Tour is intended to introduce you to the possibility of what you can experience. Where can you experience the real thing? Each Sunday at 9:30 AM you can meet the people who seek to be God’s expression of love to all his people. The doors of the “Old Stone Church” are opened wide for all to share in the Good News that God and his people love you. In this environment, you will have the opportunity to respond with your love for God and your neighbor.

We look forward to seeing you soon.
Robert W. Fretz
Pastor of the Saddle River Reformed Church
