Important Sunday Worship Information

Dear Friends,

This Sunday (November 22) is Thanksgiving and Commitment Sunday in the life of the church.  I encourage you to give thanks to God, remembering that all we have is a gift from God’s loving and generous hands.  In response to God’s generosity I also encourage you to make a financial commitment to give to God through the church by submitting your pledge card.  Our commitments will be blessed during Sunday’s worship.

I also want you to know that our Church Council discussed whether or not to remain open for indoor worship.  As you know, Governor Murphy has signed Executive Order No. 196 lowering indoor and outdoor gathering limits.  These limits however do not apply to religious gatherings.  We are still allowed to gather in the sanctuary at 25% capacity (which is 34 people in our space).  The Council reviewed our safety protocols and has decided that at this time it is still safe for us to gather for indoor worship.  We have had no more than 29 people in worship at a time and everyone in the building has followed our safety guidelines which include (but are not limited to) wearing a mask, maintaining a safe 6 feet distance, and refraining from fellowship after worship.  We remind you that if you are feeling sick, or are in a high risk group, to please remain home for your own safety, and the care of others.

At Noon on Sunday (November 22) we will have an opportunity to safely share in fellowship with one another through a Zoom fellowship time.  You can use the link to join with your computer or smartphone, or call in over your landline.  Here is the information:
