Pastoral Services

Pastors serve many functions in the church. If you are interested in one of the services provided please let us know!


Holy Communion

John Wesley, the founder of Methodism, encouraged people to take communion as often as they could.  At church we have communion on the 1st Sunday of the month but you can also have it by request at any point. If you want it, let us know!



The birth of a child is a special occasion and in the church we mark it with baptism to declare the child as God's child! Set a date and meet with the pastor to have your special occasion at our church.



You want the right place and the right minister to have your wedding. Consider our church in Bergen County, New Jersey for your special occasion. Download our printable brochure and contact us.



The death of a loved one can be one of the most painful experiences. If you would like the presence of the pastor after the death of a family member or close friend, call the pastor directly at 201-664-1533. Contact us by email or phone to discuss funeral services.



Becoming a member of Hillsdale United Methodist Church requires two meetings with the pastor to review ministry and theology. Youth under 16 participate in the confirmation classes.


Pastoral Visitation

Our pastor visits people who are hospitalized, homebound or who simply want a visit in their home. 


Pastoral Counseling

Though Pastor Brian is not a trained therapist, he can offer some helpful insights on topics such as faith, marriage and grief. He can also refer you to a specialist, if needed.
