Our Annual Congregational meeting is this coming Sunday, January 28. We will meet to approve the 2018 budget, approve nominations, and consider new business as brought to the floor. Everyone is invited to attend; only church members will be allowed to vote. See you there!

The following meetings are happening this and next week:

  • Congregational Meeting, Sunday, Jan 28 @ 11:00 AM
  • Sabbatical Committee, Monday, Jan 29 @ 7:00 PM

Join us in January and February for our new sermon series: Outcasts: The Friends of Jesus. Over the next  5 weeks, we'll look to Scripture as it reveals God's preferrential love for the outcast, poor, and the lost. We'll examine Luke 15 and the parables of the lost sheep, lost coin, and lost son (Luke 15). Then next week, we'll look to Zacchaeus (Luke 19:1-10), then the immoral woman who anointed Jesus' feet (luke 7:36-50), the healing of the lepers (Luke 17:11-19_, and finally the thief on the cross (Luke 23:39-43). Join us for an insightful look at God's compassion and heart for 'the least of these.' And, hopefully, we'll better understand how we can love others as God does.

Annual Reports are now due from all Boards, Committees, and ministries of the church. Please write a 2-3 paragraph report about what your group has done last year and what it hopes to do this year. Submit all reports by Monday, January 22. We will provide them on our website for your viewing prior to the annual meeting on Sunday, January 28.

We are planning a Newcomers Class soon. If you are interested in church membership, you are invite to attend this class. We will meet for 2.5 hours either on a Thursday night or Saturday morning. Please let the Pastor know if you are interested in attending.

There will be no Confirmation on Sunday, February 4 as our Confirmation students will be away at Camp Bernie. Camp Bernie is the New Jersey Association's annual youth camp. We are planning an additional youth lock-in during the month of February, although an exact date as yet to be determined. Our next at-church Confirmation Class will be on Sunday, March 4 at 12:30 PM in the Pastor's office in our church.
