GOT CHANGE Special Project

GOT CHANGE Needs Help - They're going to college!

​We are very proud to announce that the two oldest children of our adopted family have been accepted and have received financial assistance from TCNJ and UCONN. However, the kids are responsible for personal and dorm needs. We need to help these kids succeed in every way possible.  

YOU CAN HELP! Make a generous donation to GOT CHANGE and we will purchase gift cards. If you prefer to purchase items directly, please let Susan Kane know and consult with her so that items are specific to the needs of the students and so that we avoid duplicates.

The lists are on the website.

Donate a meal

Fanta's Food Train is back!

Fanta's renewed cancer treatments are making her very tired. She and her family desperately in need of a couple of simple meals a week. The Meal Train website makes it easy to see what is needed and to volunteer to provide a meal. Holly Warnowicz is willing to pick meals up at church or in Clinton or dropped off at Winnewald Camp prior to 1 pm during the week.   Find out more >

Moving help needed

Seeking strong college/high school kids (or older?) willing to help me move on Thursday, 28 July. I have a storage unit 2 miles away from my home at 4 High Street 2, Lebanon, NJ 08833 and the plan is to start at 9:00 a.m. A U-Haul has been rented. Movers will be paid and any interested parties should email Julie Stine at .

Book Group Continues

Wonderfully Dysfunctional, by Buffi Neal is the new book. This is a true story about a dysfunctional family setting. What makes it unique is the cast of characters: a gypsy mother who refuses to wear a bra, a father who refuses to leave his first wife, and a brother who sleeps under the coffee table. Reviews mention that all readers will begin to question the sanity/insanity of their home situations!! This most definitely is a drastic difference from Ghost Story, and perhaps a lighter summer read. Books are available in the Parish Office. Hoping to meet as a group on August 14 after the 10 AM service. Questions contact Suzanne Higgins

Preparing for Sunday

Find the lessons appointed for Sunday here >

Sunday’s readings encourage us to relate to God with boldness and persistence. Hosea (SC) imitates God’s relationship with Israel in his own relationship with his wife. In Genesis (GR), Abraham intercedes with God, bargaining for the righteous who live in Sodom. The psalmist gives thanks for God’s strong hand in a time of trouble. Paul warns the Colossians not to exchange the Lordship of Christ for human teachings. Jesus teaches his disciples how to pray and illustrates the right attitudes with a story.
