Rev. Marie Meeks, Pastor

Rev. Marie A. Meeks was called to Dobbs Ferry Lutheran Church in October 2017.  Her former calls were to two congregations in covenant, Bethany Lutheran Church in Olean, NY and Bethel Lutheran Church in Portville NY. She is excited to be part of the Dobbs Ferry community.


Pastor Marie enjoys greeting the children of the Christian Pre-School at Dobbs Ferry Lutheran Church each morning, and leads the children's chapel group on Thursdays.

Pastor Marie grew up in Smithtown Long Island, and has three children. Her son, Daniel, lives with her in Dobbs Ferry; and her son, Drake and his wife Julie live in North Carolina. Her daughter, Jessie, lives in Hudson Falls NY. Jessie has three children:  Audrie, Zechariah, and Merrida. Audrie and her husband Tyler have a daughter, Bonnie.

Lutherans believe in the Triune God. God created and loves all of creation -- the earth and the seas and all of the world’s inhabitants. We believe that God's Son, Jesus Christ, transforms lives through his death on the cross and his new life, and we trust that God's Holy Spirit is active in the world. 

We are a part of God's unfolding plan. We connect with believers everywhere. When we study the Bible or hear God's Word in worship, we are drawn more deeply into the story of the salvation of God's people through Christ Jesus. 


In 2024 we will celebrate our 85th Anniversary. Our church started in 1939 as a mission driven church. This remains central to who we are and how we look to fulfill God's work through our support. One way we show this is through a continued tradition we call First Fruits. This program identifies key programs to send the very first monies from donations received. These programs include the Christian Pre-School, Dobbs Ferry Food Pantry, Midnight Run, Missionary Support and more. 

Our people comes from many backgrounds, yet through our shared love of and from Christ and our common beliefs, we celebrate together to joy of God's unending love. We gladly share this with all and welcome our neighbors to visit us and get to know more about us.
