The Third  Sunday after Pentecost

Wine Tasting Fundraiser 

Sip into Summer


Please join us tonight for our Wine Tasting Fundraiser - SIP into SUMMER - at SJOTM in Parish Hall from 6:30 - 9:00 pm. Walk-ins are welcome.  Come and taste wonderful wines as recommended by 56 Degree Wine, paired with great food selections. There will also be a silent auction, a giving tree, and the opportunity to buy artisan pottery, glass, and jewelry from Talaverica.  Click here to view the invitation.




Fighting Summer Hunger Challenge


We have been challenged to a friendly competition by some of our neighboring parishes to see who can raise the most food to assist hungry people in our area.  In the summer, donations to local food banks typically becomes sparse, as so many of us travel, and the needs of the food banks fall off our radar.  The Conover Churches (our sister parishes) have challenged us to this friendly competition, and we will see who can donate the most to the Food Bank in the the month of June.  It is a competition where there are no losers.  Everyone wins, especially our neighbors who are hungry!  To participate in the challenge, you can donate money through the parish office, or click here to donate directly through the website.  


Ladies' Luncheon Thursday, June 20th 


All are welcome to join us on Thursday, June 20th at noon for the Ladies Luncheon at the home of Sue  Catlett, 20 Tanners Brook Road, Chester.  Please bring a sandwich; beverages and dessert will be provided.  Please RSVP to Sue at 908 955-7109.  We hope to see you there.


Parish Picnic on Sunday, June 23rd 


Plan to join us for a Parish Picnic on Sunday, June 23rd when we will have one worship service at 10 am with a picnic to follow in 

Parish Hall at 11:15 am.  Please bring a salad, side dish, or dessert to share.  Hamburgers, hot dogs, and beverages will be provided.  


One Worship Service at 10 am on Sunday, June 23rd 


We will have one service on Sunday, June 23rd at 10 am so we can gather, worship, and celebrate as a united community.  Plan to join us for a Parish Picnic immediately following the service.  Please bring a salad, side dish, or dessert to share. Hamburgers, hot dogs, and beverages will be provided. 


Tend the Garden


Stop by to tidy up the Memorial Garden and surround every Thursday at 4:30 pm.   Giving a little of your time by sweeping, weeding, and such will help to keep this lovely area at its best.  Refreshments provided.  Community Service hours will be given.


Lemonade Hour


Beginning Sunday, June 30th there will be a Lemonade Hour, immediately following the 9:30 am service.  Hosts are needed.  It's easy; all you need to bring is a small treat as the lemonade is provided by the church.  A sign-up sheet is located on the bulletin board outside of Parish Hall.  Weather permitting, Lemonade Hour will take place outside in the front courtyard.
