The Nominating Committee has been meeting and working to fill upcoming vacancies for both Session and Deacons. Please prayerfully consider if you are being called to Shine God’s Light by working together with other dedicated members of our church either by caring for our congregants and community as a Deacon or by partnering with the Pastor to strengthen and nurture the faith and life of the congregation through leadership and service as a member of Session. If you feel you are being called or would like to suggest someone you think would find this work gratifying and fulfilling, please contact a member of the Nominating Committee: Henry Kuhl, Steve Lederach, Tanya Cleary, Chris Rowland, Joanna Lentine, Mindy D’Amico, or Pastor Nancy Asbury, or you can send an email to email@example.com.

Support for Jacob D’Amico’s Eagle Scout project - My project is to construct and install a gate on the North Main Street side of the church’s parking lot so as to stop the traffic that uses that entrance as a through way during the preschool hours. It will be open on Sundays and closed during the week so as to protect the kids attending the school. The second part of my project is to construct and install a sign indicating who the cemetery is affiliated with. It will face out from the cemetery and towards the road. The final part of my project is clearing out the foliage on the east side of the cemetery. There are overgrown shrubs and poison ivy advancing on headstones which I want to trim back. The overall funding needed for materials for the gate and sign and permits is around $2,500. If we are under budget, then I will donate the funds back into the church. You can speak to me at any time, and all donations are graciously accepted and are going towards making our church a better place. Please make checks payable to Troop 1969 with Jacob's Eagle on the memo line. Thank you!
Lay Readers Needed Our church's lay reader program provides a wonderful opportunity to participate in the worship service and share the richness of God's Word with our community of believers. We welcome readers young and old. If you are a bit anxious about standing in front of the microphone, we can give you some tried and true pointers. Interested persons may contact the church office at email@example.com or 908-782-3227.

Recycle Your Old Glasses People around the world will see clearly when we care enough to recycle our old glasses. Glasses, both child and adult, as well as eyeglass cases are needed. Broken eyeglasses can be recycled. Your used glasses will be sent to Crosslink International in Memphis TN. Prescriptions will be analyzed, and the glasses will be shipped to faith-based non-profits locally, nationally, and internationally and dispensed to those in need around the world. Thousands of patients have virtually no other hope of owning a pair of glasses. The vision of Crosslink Memphis is that through the donations we share, others will come to know the Lord by being able to see his beautiful creations. Hearing aids are no longer requested. The collection box for eyeglasses is in the church library.
Stephen Ministry Training Stephen Ministry is a significant caring ministry resource available to our church family.
