Dear families,

" So then, if anyone is in Christ, that person is part of the new creation. 
The old things have gone away, and look, new things have arrived!"
2 Corinthians 5:17

Our hope in this New Year is fleeting and flimsy if not grounded in our new life in Christ. Celebrations of the birth of Jesus now turn to the daily work of discipleship.  Keep scrolling for information on our upcoming Morning of Mission (what better way for your family to start the New Year?). 

We resume our regular  Sunday morning schedule this Sunday, January 7.  See you in church school and Worship Explorers!

with New Year hope,

Music Notes from Ingrid
Dear Families, 
What joyful celebrations we enjoyed in December! And now, we look to our new year with hope and a determination to serve the God we know loves us. Looking forward to being together again soon. 

Choir Rehearsals resume January 10th!

  • Choir 345: Wednesday, January 10, 5:15pm
Inclement Weather Procedures
  • The church staff will keep an eye on the current weather, predicted weather, road conditions, and conditions of the parking lot and walkways around the church. This will dictate the necessity to close, delay opening or close early.
  • We will change the message on the church's main phone number (609-924-0103) AND a notice will appear on the Home Page of the church's website (nassauchurch.org).
  • If there is a change in the Sunday morning worship & education schedule, a church-wide email will also be sent out.
We are aware that conditions across the areas in which we all live can vary. If the church is open and conditions where you live make it inadvisable to get on the road, please be safe and stay home. Your safety is the priority! 

With Joy,
