Calling all Acolytes, Altar Guild, Eucharistic Ministers, Ushers & Choir members!  We will be having a ministers TEAM meeting on Sunday, September 15th following the 10:15 am worship service.  Please make every effort to attend.  We all need to work together to offer our worship “in the beauty of holiness” and this meeting gives us the opportunity to talk about how our various ministries work together and support each other.  If you have any questions, please talk with Rev. Valerie.


Name tags:  To help Reverend Valerie learn our names, please begin to wear your name tag.  Not only will she be able to learn our names, maybe you'll learn the name of another parishioner, too!  Name tags are hanging on the large board in the narthex.  If you do not have a name tag, please contact the office.  At the end of the service, please return your name tag to the basket on the floor in front of the board.  Thank you!


Parish Clean-Up Day Saturday 9/28/2019, Start time: 830am  Please come when you are able.  Many hands make light work!  Volunteers are needed to help weed flower beds and trim bushes.  Please bring work gloves, weeding and pruning hand tools, loppers, and rakes.  Additional volunteers are needed to help clear the North side of our property.  Please bring wheelbarrows, shovels, chainsaws, loppers and a can-do spirit!  To sign up or with additional questions, please contact John Colaianni, call or text 609.792.4055 or


Our Annual Parish Meeting will be held on Sunday, September 29th, following the 10:15 service.  During this meeting, one of the agenda items will be to vote for our new vestry members.  We are currently seeking nominations for our vestry.  Please see the insert in the bulletin for some common questions and answers in case you are not sure what a vestry is or what it does. Please consider nominating yourself or someone else for the vestry by calling the church office, talking with Reverend Valerie, or any of the current wardens or vestry members.


IOT members are selling Acme & ShopRite Cards valued at $20.00, $50.00 and $100.00 in the narthex after every service. Funds raised through card sales help pay faculty salaries and support other needs at Redemption School in Gonaives, Haiti.
