Advent Bible Study - Because of Bethlehem by Max Lucado.
Advent is a season of preparation because it is also a season of anticipation - a glorious gift is coming soon and we want to be ready to receive it! In this four-week online Bible study, we will discover the enduring promises of Christmas and a lifetime of hope because of one baby born in Bethlehem.

Meets on Wednesdays at 7:00 p.m., led by Jen Pinnela, and Thursdays at 10:30 a.m. led by pastor Dale Min. You are encouraged to donate $5 for a copy of the book, and it is now available for pickup at the church office.

We have been blessed with a Dr. that has a background in infectious disease in our congregation. Under their advisement (from working with the CDC and the state of NJ all week), and the wisdom of our Church Council, the following will take place:

  1. The office will be open if you need anything Monday-Friday during regular hours (9a-2p).
  2. We will have something for worship online on both Saturdays at 6pm and Sundays at 10am. Saturdays we will have a devotional from Pastor Barbara and then I will deliver the sermon. Sundays will be the worship format with the hymns, prayers, and sermon. Every week you will be emailed a bulletin and the hymns so you can follow along.
  3. If you are unable to join us, you can listen to the sermons online. We will make sure that the sermons are uploaded to this website ( by Monday at 2pm.
  4. Every event at the church for the next two weeks has been canceled. This means: book studies, scouts, piano lessons, etc. This is for everyone's safety.
  5. Pastor will be doing more videos and things digitally these nest two weeks, including partnering up with Pastor Matt from St. Paul's on Wednesday, so keep an eye on the church Facebook page.
  6. I'm sure that everyone wants to know when this will be over. For right now, the plan is that we will gather again on April 4th for Saturday night worship. That plan could change. Please keep an eye on your email, we will keep you updated.
  7. The sermon will also be uploaded to the church website so you can listen to it. You can go to to listen to the sermons.

If you have any questions, please contact the church office.

If you would still like to give your regular gift to help the ministry of the church, just go to the Giving web page.


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.

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!


Thank you - The Missions Committee would like to thank everyone that contributed to the Giving Tree. Every resident at Rose Mountain Care Center was given a gift thanks to your generosity.
We would also like to thank everybody that came to wrap and load the gifts. Your help was greatly appreciated.
