Treble Choir Rehearsals Begin this

Sunday, February 9th

 

Treble rehearsals will begin this Sunday, February 9th.  Join Mr. Morgan in the choir room immediately following the 10 am service for a brief rehearsal.  All children are welcome to attend.  Parents can help out by escorting their children to the choir room.  Meet new friends and sing great music.

 

Ladies' Luncheon on Thursday, February 20th

 

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

 

Serious Food Shortage at the Food Bank

 

We have learned that the number of people needing food assistance in our area is way up.  The long lines of needy people at the Bank is very noticeable and the supply of food is low.  The combination of high unemployment, termination of federal benefits for the long term unemployed, and the frigid weather has made recent times very difficult for many neighbors in our community.  Please  consider bringing items of food to donate to the Food Bank; specifically a special need for canned meats, stews, soups, tuna, and Spam.

2014 Stewardship

 

As of January 21st, we have 117 pledges for $353,425.  Our goal is to increase participation from last year and reach a total of $362,000 for 2014.  If you have any questions about Stewardship, please contact Chip Baird or Bob Courtemanche.  

  

If you haven't already done so, please return your 2014 Pledge Card ASAP.  Click here to read the 2014 Stewardship Letter.  Extra pledge cards can be found in the narthex or click here to download or email the office to have one sent to you.

  

You can also donate Stocks to SJOTM. We would be happy to accept stock donations for 2014 as form of  pledge payment. The tax advantages of giving stock, instead of cash, to church can make doing so very worthwhile.  To learn more, please contact Lisa Keenan in the office at 908-766-2282 ext 13 or by email at L.Keenan@SJOTM.org.  

 
Weekly Offering Envelopes

 

For those who have requested the Weekly Offering Envelopes for 2014, they are now available for pick-up and can be found on a table near Parish Hall.  If you don't see your name and you would like weekly envelopes, please call the office 908-766-2282 or contact office@sjotm.org to have them sent to you.
