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 Food 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.

 

Healing Service on Thursday, Feb 27th 

 

The Holy Eucharist with Prayers for Healing will take place on Thursday, February 27th at noon in the chapel. This simple service of prayer, Holy Communion, and the laying on of hands for those who desire it, is an extension of the ministry of the Pastoral Care Committee. All are welcome.

 

Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper

 

 Please join us on Tuesday, March 4th from 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm, in Parish Hall, for all of the pancakes and sausage that you can eat!  A donation of $5 per person is suggested.  Kids ages three and under are free.

 

Ash Wednesday, March 5th

 

 Services for Ash Wednesday, March 5th 

  • 12 pm  Holy Eucharist Rite II with imposition of Ashes, Chapel
  • 7 pm    Holy Eucharist Rite II with Imposition of Ashes, in the Church, with the Parish Choir
 

Evening Prayer on Tuesdays: Praying in Lent


March 11th, 18th, 25th, April 1, April 8

On Tuesdays evenings at 6 pm, the community will gather for Evening Prayer in the Chapel, followed by a simple pot-luck supper. Members of our community will preside at this simple service of prayer.  Bring a dish to share for supper, and come and allow the word of God to wash over you, and pray with the assembled community, as our ancestors did before us. 

 

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.
