Joyce MacKichan Walker
The word is out! The Rev. Joyce MacKichan Walker has announced her retirement at the end of August. "How can that be?" we all thought. Joyce has served Nassau Presbyterian Church as director of Christian education and minister of education for 30 years. It is time to celebrate her years with us and wish her well in her retirement endeavors. We can be assured that retirement won't mean rocking on the porch for Joyce.

You are invited to celebrate Joyce in a luncheon on Sunday, July 1, at 12:30 p.m. at Mackay Center of Princeton Theological Seminary. We are putting together a scrapbook and retirement gift as well. Sign up now for the luncheon and make a contribution at

Join us for a church-wide opportunity for prayer on Sunday, June 10. After the 10:00 a.m. service, we will gather at 11:00 a.m. in the Assembly Room.

We will journey with God's Pentecost Spirit and we will be bold to pray as God sends the church out to work this summer in ministry, mission, and outreach.

We will walk a full-size Labyrinth, pray at Prayer Stations in the Chapel, and enjoy a light lunch. All are welcome.
