Lawn Mowing Help Is Needed!!:  A sign-up sheet for lawn mowing in September and October 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

Sanctuary Flowers:  Flowers blooming in your garden?  Consider sharing them with your church family!  Pick a bouquet and bring to church for a Sunday morning.  If you wish, give Joanne a call at 973-875-2204.  She would be happy to pick and arrange and bring your flowers to church!

Plain Change Ministry:  Another $17.50 has been collected in our Plain Change Ministry jar in the back of the Sanctuary.  Thank you to everyone for your spare change!  Please continue to empty your pockets/purses to help our neighbors in need.

NJ State Fair ParticipantsDid you participate in any way at the New Jersey State Fair/Sussex County Farm & Horse Show this year?  Did you win a ribbon, enter an event, volunteer your time, etc.?  Please let the church office know.  We will be listing all participants of this year’s fair in our October newsletter.  Don’t be left out!!

Financial Future of our Church—Informative Meeting September 28, 2014 Following Worship:  All members and friends of the congregation are encouraged to attend an informal meeting hosted by the Session on Sunday, September 28th, following the service.  As you know, Session placed a moratorium on all discretionary spending in June and have just extended the moratorium until December 31, 2014.  Like most small churches, we are having financial difficulties and are quickly depleting our reserve cash just meeting ordinary expenses.  The Session will present a report on our present situation.  Session felt it important to explain the church financial condition prior to the stewardship season.  The presentation will be brief, followed by time for questions and suggestions for solutions, both short- and long-term.  It is important to have as many members present as possible.  We are all in this church family together and can only find a way forward together.  PLEASE PLAN TO ATTEND ON SEPTEMBER 28TH.
