The Deacons’ Fund for November  will go to Skylands Outreach Depot .  Please give generously!

Deacon Visits: We are pleased to announce that the Deacons are going to begin visiting with members of the church!  We will be offering our time and company to anyone interested.  At your request, we will contact you to arrange a time and place (typically your home J).  We also encourage you to let us know of people who would appreciate a visit.  We look forward to a friendly visit with you!  Contact Phil Hardin at (201) 602-5445 for further information.

Be a Good Steward:  If you haven’t done so already, please submit your pledge card to Janet Hayzler, 96 Holland Rd., Wantage, NJ  07461, or drop it in the collection plate on Sunday.  Session is in the process of making key decisions regarding 2016, and your timely submission of your pledge cards will be greatly appreciated.

Your Church Family Cares:  Is there an impending surgery, a personal loss, or some issue or event that is troubling you?  Please know that your church family is available to help and support you with a phone call or a visit from a Deacon or Pastor, or just some company in a time of need.  We are just a phone call away!  Please leave a personal message for Pastor Amy (973-534-7479) or Deacon Phil Hardin (201-602-5445).

Plain Change Ministry:  Please continue to empty your pockets/ purses to help our neighbors in need.  Thank you for your support!

Thanksgiving Eve Ecumenical Service:  This year, the annual Thanksgiving Ecumenical Service will be held on Wednesday, November 25th, 7:00 p.m., at the Church of the Good Shepherd in Wantage.  Rev. David B. Rude will be preaching.  Refresh-ments will follow.  All are welcome.  A free-will donation will be given to the S-W Lay Ecumenical Council.

Bible Study:  The Book of Acts gives us a glimpse of the struggle and growth the first followers of Christ underwent as they formed and reformed as a community of faith.  They were the first learners of what it means to be church.  We are part of the current generation learning this same lesson; what does it mean to be a community of faith?  Pastor Amy is preaching on the Book of Acts, and you will have two opportunities to dig deeper into the Book of Acts.  Every Thursday at 1:00 p.m., Pastor Amy leads a discussion on the upcoming Sunday’s Scripture lesson; and every Sunday, stay after worship for 40 minutes to continue the discussion started by the sermon.  With your church family, share what you felt, heard, and experienced in worship and what you feel the Spirit is asking you do.  All are invited to grow closer to God and to your brothers and sisters in Christ as together we study the Book of Acts.  Come, Holy Spirit, Come!
