Deacons Fund for January will go to The Center for Prevention and Counseling . Please give generously! 

Deacon Visits: The Deacons are visiting with members of the church.  At your request, we will contact you to arrange a time and place (typically your home J).  We also encourage you to let us know of people who would appreciate a visit.  We look forward to a friendly visit with you!  Contact Phil Hardin at (201) 602-5445 for further information

Snow RemovalVolunteers are needed to help with snow removal this winter.  A sign-up sheet is on the table in the narthex.

2017 Church EnvelopesThe 2017 church offering envelopes are available in the Narthex.  Please take yours home with you when you come to church.  Also, if you see a neighbor’s envelopes, please take them and drop them off.

2017 CalendarsPinkel Funeral Home has generously donated scenic calendars with our church info on it.  Please feel free to take home as many as you’d like.  They are located in the Narthex.

Confirmation Class:  Will be held on Sunday January 22nd, from 6 to 8pm.  Meeting will be at the church and dinner will be provided.  Please contact Pastor Amy if you are interested in helping with this year’s Confirmation Class.

Soup, Chili and Bread Sale:  The Afternoon Women’s group will have a Soup, Chili and Bread Sale, Sunday February 5th. After worship service these items will be sold by the bowl, pint or quart.  Sign-up sheet is on the bulletin board in the Fellowship Room.

New DirectoryA new Church Directory is available on the table in the narthex.  Please don’t forget to take a copy home with you.  Updates will be published in the monthly newsletters.  Thank you!!          

Prayer BoxIn an effort to reach out to the community, a prayer box has been placed outside under the front sign.  Anonymous prayers are read/prayed for by the Ecumenical prayer group.  The box is open to church members also!!

From Newton PresbyteryThe Presbytery wants to include you in their database.  They send out a weekly newsletter that is full of information about the Presbytery and individual churches, and they don’t want you to miss anything!  Please sign up on the form in the narthex at the church, or go to the Presbytery’s webpage at: www.newtonpresbytery.org and give them your name and email address.

Faith Community Health PartnershipIn the event you are hospitalized in a hospital that is part of the Atlantic Health Care System (Newton, Morristown, Hackettstown, Chilton in Pompton Plains, or Overlook in Summit), one of the first questions asked is whether you would like your faith community to be notified.  If your answer would be yes, you can expedite the process by filling out a registration form that will be put into the Atlantic Health Care Database.  Thus, if you are hospitalized, the system would already be in place.  Pastor Amy or a deacon would be visiting or contacting you to render support to you and your family.  If you wish to participate in this optional program, please fill out the form at the link below and return it to Phil Hardin or the church office.  Click Here for Form

Your Church Family CaresIs there an impending surgery, a personal loss, or some issue or event that is troubling you?  Please know that your church family is available to help and support you with a phone call or a visit from a Deacon or Pastor, or just some company in a time of need.  We are just a phone call away!  Please leave a personal message for Pastor Amy (973-534-7479) or Deacon Phil Hardin (201-602-5445).

Plain Change MinistryPlease continue to empty your pockets/ purses to help our neighbors in need.  Thank you for your support!

Clothing Collection Box:  Please remember to use the clothing collection box located in the back of our parking lot.  The company we use empties the box on a weekly basis, maintains insurance and permits, and cleans up any “dumping” that may occur.  They send the church a flat fee of $150.00 a month.  This is a great idea for continued monthly revenue.  Also, please tell your friends about it!
