NEW Sermon Series

Starts This Sunday!
Our new summer sermon series on the minor prophets starts this Sunday, and we can’t wait! Each minor prophet will play a different role on our minor league baseball team and will be in a different position on the field. Who will be on first and who will be elsewhere? I don’t know (third base!), but you’ll have to join us each Sunday from July 12th to August 28th to find out!

On this first Sunday, June 12th, we are opening up with a skit to introduce the series called “Who’s on the Team?” inspired by Abbott and Costello’s “Who’s on First?” We’ll be delving into Hosea, our first minor prophet, and we invite you to get ready for a message from Hosea 11:1-11 entitled, “You’re Killing Me, Smalls!”

We’re taking you out to the ball game each Sunday this summer, and we might even buy you some peanuts and Cracker Jacks if you’re lucky! So, come one, and come all. No matter what team you root for, you are welcome here. It’ll be a summer to remember and we’re going to knock this one out of the park together!

Whether in-person or on YouTube,
 we look forward to seeing you at 11:15am Sunday!

Church Vision Meeting

All congregants are invited to join us in the church fellowship hall from 9am to 12 noon on Saturday, June 11th for an important gathering where we will dream and vision together, set goals and establish objectives together, as we emerge from the pandemic and into the new landscape of ministry that surrounds us.
Last Call for Baseball Related Items

Since we're taking you out to the ball game each Sunday, we invite you to donate bats, batting gloves, helmets, jerseys and hats (of any team), baseballs or anything related to the sport that we can borrow and use to decorate the sanctuary with. Thank you in advance for your help! Please reach out to Pastor Donald today or tomorrow at (973) 771-9511 or if you can help with this in any way.

Hungry to Whole

Inspired by “The Daniel Plan” book and John Wesley’s Holy Clubs, Hungry to Whole is grounded in Psalm 107:9 – “God satisfies the thirsty and fills the hungry with good things” (NIV). Our prayer is that those who come hungry each week would leave whole in more than one way.
