resources for discussion Voyage of the Dawn Treader

The new movie coming out on December 10 is a great discussion starter for family conversations about Christian faith. There is a bible study resource as well as a 7 session study book that we can make available if there is interest. Let us know if you'd like us to get them for the church to have on hand! If you'd like to investigate more about CS Lewis and the Chronicles of Narnia, click on the links provided. Wikipedia has articles about Narnia and CS Lewis. Another webpage has the blessing of CS Lewis family, and there is a CS Lewis Foundation at work to establish a Christian college in his honor. There is an official movie website and you can buy the book from Amazon.


prayer team brings good news to Summerville residents

Our prayer team has sponsored a special service at Summerville for a couple of years now. This year an expanded team was able to bring music and a Christmas message to about forty very grateful residents at the home. We're grateful to the expanded team for their willingness to serve in this way, during a very busy season of the year.

group forming to explore volunteer program

a group is forming to explore whether we might be able to implement the Kids Hope USA program in our area. A number of Reformed Churches across the country (two in New Jersey) are currently engaged in this effort to link churches and local schools to provide mentoring for children. There are many questions for us to answer at this point about whether it would work in our area, how many people would be interested, how we would support the training and ongoing support needs...but with our food and clothing ministries well supplied with volunteers it is time to look at expanding our involvement in the community in new ways. Contact the Pastor or the church office (609-597-5151) if you would like to participate in this initial exploration group.
