The church office hours are Monday through Thursday, 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM.  If you would like to speak with the pastor, stop by the church or make an appointment. Call, email, or Facebook him. He'd love to meet with you.

The White Elephant, our thrift store, is looking for donations. We take household items, games, dinnerware, toys, decorations, and the like. We do not take computer, stereos, TVs, clothes, or large furniture. To schedule your delivery, please contact Karen Minkler at (201) 568-6390.


We are having our Newcomer's Class on Saturday, May 27 from 9:00 - 11:15 AM. We will meet either in the Pastor's Office or the Social Hall, depending on how many persons RSVP for the class. A continental breakfast and childcare services will be provided. All persons interested in church membership need to have attended a Newcomer's Class. This class will teach you the history of our church, history of our denomination, the values of our congregation, and help you determine your gifts for ministry. It is a very relaxed and informational conversation. If you are interested in church membership and haven't spoken with the pastor yet, please let him know that you'd like to attend the Newcomer's Class.

Mark your calendars for our Rainbow Cafe's Gay Prom. It is scheduled for Friday, June 2 from 7:00 - 10:00 PM. All LGBTQ teens and their allies are invited to an evening of great music with awesome DJ Greta, wonderful friendship making, and tasty pizza! Admission is still only $5.

The Women’s Book Discussion Group will meet on Thursday, June 8, 7:30 PM. Its first selection is Room for Hope by Kim Vogel Sawyer.  We ask that you read the book before our June 8 meeting; friends are welcome, and refreshments will be served!
