Bible Handwriting Project
Bible Handwriting Project

Join our Bible Handwriting Project as we make an altar bible by the collective handwriting of each member of our church. It'll be a time to meet God through His Word, have a more reflective engagement with the Word of God, have more time to think about what is written, and dwell on the meaning and implications of the Word of God. Let God strengthen you through the Words!

Pathways
Pathways - Church Visioning Process

Pathways is a visioning process to discern God's calling and plan for our church. It will be an opportunity for us to assess our current situation, learn and grow in understanding, and create a plan that will give us the tools to transform lives, the congregation, and our community. For the next 6 to 12 months, we hope to create clarity and focus for our ministry that will bear fruit and sustainable results. The whole church will be doing this work as a team. GNJ has assigned Rev. Gina Yeske, Director of Resourcing of Metro-Highlands Region to work with us throughout the whole process. And thanks to Michele Pache to be the team leader of the Pathways. Please keep this process in your prayers. Thanks to Pathways team members; Michele Pache, Jen Pinnella, Julie Fircha, Laura Wright, Mercy Chang, and Mark Pache. Please keep this process in your prayers.

Due to flooding
from Hurricane Irene at Willow Creek in Somerset, Barbara Zaleski has been moved temporarily to Complete Care @ Westfield. The transition has been difficult for her and others who have been relocated to three different facilities until renovations have been completed. Please consider sending a card to Barbara c/o Complete Care @ Westfield, 1515 Lamberts Mill Road, Westfield, NJ 07090 Room 203.
In November it will be seven years since her stroke and move into Willow Creek and she misses our church family very much.

Altar Flowers
Dear Friends, If anyone is interested in ordering weekly flowers to beautify the sanctuary, please contact Elsie Chirico. Vases start at $18.00 each and centerpieces start at $30.00. By ordering flowers for the altar, you have an opportunity to honor a loved one or give thanksgiving and your dedication will appear in that week's bulletin.
Thank you, Elsie

Pop Tab Collection
The Sunday School would like your help collecting Pop Tabs from aluminum cans to support a program being run by the Ronald McDonald House of New Brunswick and Long Branch. The tabs can be easily removed by twisting them back and forth until they break off. A collection box will be placed in Friendship Hall where you can drop the tabs you save during the week. The collected tabs will be sent to the Ronald McDonald House and then sent to a recycling facility where they are sold by the pound. The money raised will be used to offset the operational expenses of this wonderful charity. Please help us!
