On September 11, we’ll return to our standard worship service hour at 11 AM. That means it’s time for the church’s annual “Welcome Back” luncheon! Lunch will start immediately after worship and will be held on the Great Lawn (weather permitting). Grill Master Percy Crockett will be cooking hot dogs and hamburgers, but the congregation will need to supply the side dishes, salads and desserts. There will be a signup sheet in the Colonial Room for everyone to indicate what you’ll be bringing.
Hope to see you all there!
We’re holding an old fashioned ice cream social and movie night at 7PM on Saturday, August 13th! Build your own sundae, then settle in at 8PM to watch “Minions,” a light-hearted movie. If the weather permits, we’ll gather on the lawn outside Murchison Hall; otherwise inside. Bring your friends and family!
Now that school is out for the summer, many children are not getting breakfast or lunch through the schools, and the demand at food pantries is even higher than before. We are doing a food drive here at church this summer and ask that you consider a food donation of breakfast and lunch foods, items such as: boxed cereal, peanut butter, jelly, muffin or pancake mix, pop tarts, apple sauce, breakfast bars, oatmeal, syrup or any non-perishables. Shop the summer sales! Donations can be dropped off at the church on Saturday mornings, between 9am and noon, or on Sundays during worship service. All donations will be delivered to the People to People Food Pantry.
Give with joy…Your donations will directly benefit local families in need!
Don’t forget…On Sunday, June 19th, we begin our summer worship start time of 10AM.

We’ll start the fun with a picnic potluck dinner from 4-5pm, serving hamburgers and hot dogs hot off the grill. Please bring cold food–chips, salads, desserts–to share. After we eat, we’ll have a selection of local musicians performing. It will be a casual, social event on the north lawn, indoors if raining. Voluntary donations will be gratefully accepted! Invite your friends and family!
Many thanks to Nathan Mungin III of the Martin Luther King Multi-Purpose Center in Spring Valley. Nathan and his wife Laura recently joined us in worship and spoke of the important work being done at the Center, particularly with the children of Rockland County.
Our community’s youth have been heavily impacted by the pandemic. Social isolation and missed classroom time have taken a toll. On a national level, many young people are experiencing depression and social anxiety, which can lead to violence.
What can you do?
Give to our Pentecost Offering on June 5th. Your gifts this year will go to the MLK Center, to help them continue their important work creating a “beloved community” for our children.
Please pray for all our young people, and give generously to the Pentecost Offering.
