September 11th Service
The tenth anniversary of Sept 11th falls on a Sunday this year, and we will mark this occasion and remember those who died on that day during both of our worship services (8am and 10am). If you would like to include the name(s) of a friend or family member to be read during these services, please submit those names to the office by Wednesday, September 7th.
Upcoming Baptism Date
A summer baptism date has been added for Sunday, Sept 4, at the 9:30 service. Please contact the parish office as soon as possible if you are interested in this date. The next service for Holy Baptism will be on All Saints' Sunday, November 6th.
Please sign up for a Summer Sunday and be a host or hostess. All you have to do is bring a small treat as the lemonade is provided by the church. The sign-up sheet is on the bulletin board outside of the kitchen door. Weather permitting, Lemonade Hour will take place outside in the front courtyard so we can all enjoy the new landscaping!
Help us to keep our new plantings alive and well. Please volunteer to water the plants. A sign-up sheet is posted outside of parish hall. For more details, please contact Beirne Donaldson at 973-543-2633 (home) or 973-476-0410 (cell).
Please help us save over $3,000 this summer, by volunteering your time to cut the grass. We are in need of weekly volunteers. You can cut the grass any day of the week, as long as it is cut by Sunday in preparation for the Sunday services. A sign-up sheet is located on the bulletin board in the hallway near parish hall. For more information, please contact Beirne Donaldson at 973-543-2633 (home) or 973-476-0410 (cell).
