This Week on the Mountain  

will be taking off for its Summer Vacation

The weekly email goes away on vacation for several weeks in the summer.  Fear not!  The website is current throughout the summer, and the worship of the Church continues.  We gather on Sunday mornings at 9:30 for worship, followed by lemonade.  Father Malloy will be preaching and presiding on the Sundays when the Rector is away on her vacation.

2014 Curbing Hunger Food Drive Campaign to support the Food Bank Network of Somerset County 



Once again, 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.  You may recall that last year, we won!  Between the three parishes that participated in the Hunger Challenge, 6,825 pounds of food was purchased, 2,667 pounds by members of our community.  This amount was over 10% of the entire Curbing Hunger goal for 2013. The Food Bank relies heavily on our donations to keep their shelves stocked.  The goal is to get more than 50,000 pounds of food supplies donated.  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. 

Thank You to our VBS Camp Volunteers! 

This week 16 children explored how the ordinary becomes extraordinary at the "Workshop of Wonders" here at SJOTM.  Children heard Bible stories; created beautiful artwork including tie dye shirts; completed science experiments; played games; and even cooled off with some outdoor water fun!  


Thank you to our youth and adult volunteers, including Elena Berg, Sophie Bosie, Trent Briskie, Amy Chatwin, Camille Chatwin, Kendall Gilvar, Meredith Hespe, Sally Hespe, Lauren Keenan, Taylor Keenan, Holly Lippman, Lori Morris, Sammy Morris, Janice Petroutsos, Sean Robinson, and Zach Rosenthal.

Lemonade Hour
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 near the front door.  Weather permitting, Lemonade Hour will take place outside in the front courtyard.  Beginning this Sunday, June 29th, Lemonade Hour will immediately follow the 9:30 am service.
Tend the Garden


Thursdays at 4:30 pm

July and August
