About Us

Our History

In 1956, our church took root on the Hartman family potato farm and we have been growing ever since! As we continue into the 21st century, we are dedicated to offering our community and surrounding towns a welcoming, inclusive and God-loving spiritual center.

Our Vision

To become more passionate, more vital, more risky, and more generous Disciples of Christ . . . through our worship and spiritual practices; through our mission and outreach; and through our generous giving to each other and to Jesus’ Church.

Our Tradition

PRC is a church in the reformed tradition, dedicated to the Reformed Church of America’s mission:

The Reformed Church in America is a fellowship of congregations called by God and empowered by the Holy Spirit to be the very presence of Jesus Christ in the world. Our shared task is to equip congregations for ministry- a thousand churches in a million ways doing one thing- following Christ in mission, in a lost and broken world so loved by God.

Maureen Smith Setton 
Organist and Choir Director
Maureen Head Shot

Maureen is a native of Long Island, residing in Baldwin, NY.  Early in her career she performed in several national tours for Richard Rodgers Productions and was then invited by the Metropolitan Opera to perform comprimario roles, which opened doors for her vocal career, ultimately including the New York City Opera, Carnegie Recital Hall and foreign venues such as the Malmaison in Paris, France. As a master vocalist, she has performed under the batons of renowned conductors such as Leonard Bernstein, James Levine, and Karl Boehm in radio and television appearances including the “Meet the Composer” concert series.  Presently, Ms. Setton is engaged in recording specialized albums that have broad appeal: opera, art song and even spiritual works, all presented with “New Age” orchestrations.  Besides being an accomplished pianist, Maureen is also an organist, who has served the Long Island community in many other ways. In 2001, for instance, she was most pleased and proud to be chosen as “Ms. New York” in which capacity she represented her state in the national Senior America Competition in Las Vegas where she achieved the status of first-runner up.  She has always maintained that “achievements are not reserved merely for the young,” thus inspiring her students and colleagues, many of whom are recognized artists in their own right. Her early training was a result of scholarships to Sacred Heart Academy, Nazareth College in Rochester, and Hofstra University on Long Island. Presently, Maureen is taking on a number of select young artists with whom she is sharing her professional knowledge. In April of 2013, she presented a recital of the “Music of Alfred Morena, Sr” at Lincoln Center to critical acclaim.
