Deacons Fund for August: will go to Literacy NJ (formerly Literacy Volunteers of Sussex County). Please give generously!

Deacon Visits: The Deacons are visiting with members of the church.  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

Worship HoursSummer worship will begin at 9:30 a.m. through August 28th.  Starting Sunday September 4th, worship will return to 10:30am.

Family Promise:  Family Promise guests will be arriving Sunday August 21st.  The sign-up/volunteer sheet is on the bulletin board in the Fellowship Room.  Please contact Joanne Cosh.

Sunday School 2015-2016 Video:  Click here for video.

Sunday School Registration:  Sunday school starts September 11th.   Click here for registration form.

Don’t Forget!!Please remember to keep up with your contribution.  If you pay your bills using online banking, consider scheduling your weekly or monthly giving like other regular payments.  This will greatly assist with our cash flow, which is historically an issue during the summer.

Prayer & Christian MeditationOn Tuesdays, through August 16th, 6-7 p.m., the Sussex United Methodist Church will host in their fellowship hall.  Come and spend tine with God through prayer, meditation on Scripture, and listening to the Holy Spirit.  It will be relaxing, refreshing, and fulfilling.  A wonderful way to spend some time this summer!  Any questions call Lynn Panico at 973-702-0488.

Your Help Is Needed!!A sign-up sheet for lawn mowing is on the table in the narthex.  Please sign up for the week(s) that is/are good for you.  A lawn mower is available in the manse garage.  Ask Sharon or Pastor Amy for the key to the garage.  Teens are also encouraged to sign up.  This is a great community service project for school, scouts, etc.

Prayer BoxIn an effort to reach out to the community, a prayer box has been placed outside under the front sign.  Anonymous prayers are read/prayed for by the Ecumenical prayer group.  The box is open to church members also!!

From Newton PresbyteryThe Presbytery wants to include you in their database.  They send out a weekly newsletter that is full of information about the Presbytery and individual churches, and they don’t want you to miss anything!  Please sign up on the form in the narthex at the church, or go to the Presbytery’s webpage at: www.newtonpresbytery.org and give them your name and email address.

Faith Community Health PartnershipIn the event you are hospitalized in a hospital that is part of the Atlantic Health Care System (Newton, Morristown, Hackettstown, Chilton in Pompton Plains, or Overlook in Summit), one of the first questions asked is whether you would like your faith community to be notified.  If your answer would be yes, you can expedite the process by filling out a registration form that will be put into the Atlantic Health Care Database.  Thus, if you are hospitalized, the system would already be in place.  Pastor Amy or a deacon would be visiting or contacting you to render support to you and your family.  If you wish to participate in this optional program, please fill out the form at the link below and return it to Phil Hardin or the church office.  Click Here for Form

Your Church Family CaresIs 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 MinistryPlease continue to empty your pockets/ purses to help our neighbors in need.  Thank you for your support!

Clothing Collection Box:  Please remember to use the clothing collection box located in the back of our parking lot.  The company we use empties the box on a weekly basis, maintains insurance and permits, and cleans up any “dumping” that may occur.  They send the church a flat fee of $150.00 a month.  This is a great idea for continued monthly revenue.  Also, please tell your friends about it!
