Celebration of Sunday School on September 6th :  Did you ever teach Sunday School in this church, or were you ever a Sunday School student?  When the Sunday School pictures were on display during our anniversary, they were looked over very carefully every Sunday.  Perhaps this would be a good time to come back and celebrate that early time in your life.  And teachers, call your students and invite them back!  Let’s make September 6th a “Memory Sunday”.  For more information, please call Betty at 973-875-3892.

Rehearsal Begins:  Choir rehearsal begins Sunday, September 6th, 9:15 a.m.  Hope to see some new faces!!

Lawn Mowing 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.  The Buildings & Grounds Committee has purchased a lawn tractor for the church as an incentive to have more people volunteer to mow the lawn and to make it as comfortable as possible.  The total cost is $500.  If you would like to donate money towards this purchase as a way of offsetting the cost of the lawn tractor, please mark your check to this effect.  You may send your check, payable to First Presbyterian Church of Sussex, to Janet Hayzler, Depositing Treasurer, 96 Holland Road, Wantage, NJ  07461, or place it in the offering plate.  Thanks so much for your consideration in this matter!

Care Package Ministry:  Please e-mail Marion Kopec at mkopec6841@aol.com with names and addresses of college students (full-time, part-time, away or local, degree, undergrad, or advanced, etc.), using “Care Package Ministry” in the subject line.  We will be collecting items, in quantities of 10, to be sent to our college students.  Regardless of home or away, we want to show them our support.  Suggested items include:  cookies, candies, mints, gum, chips, popcorn, flashlights, toothbrush/paste, post-its, etc.  A more complete list is available on the table in the narthex.  If you don’t have time to shop, cash donations are appreciated as well, and the items will be bought for you.  Also, monetary donations will help with the cost for mailing the boxes.  Thank you for your help with this project.
