The meeting was held at the First Presbyterian Church in Ramsey, home of the Presbytery Moderator, Elder Paul Talarico.  The Pastor, Rev. Steve Huston, staff and volunteers ensured all preparations for a smooth running meeting were in place. Pastor and staff extended a warm welcome and provided a great Middle Eastern meal enjoyed by everyone!

The worship sermon was delivered by R.E. Paul Talarico, Moderator, entitled “O, Jerusalem..O, Detroit!” The sermon was about staying connected in the midst of disagreement.

The service of worship was followed by a report from Rev. Jon Brown, one of the commissioners to GA, and Kayla Badree, YAAD representative.  The assembly then broke into small discussion groups, to express their thoughts regarding “Marriage Equality” issues.

Snow Removal Relief

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

Grace to you and Peace in the name of our Lord Christ Jesus.

When one of our presbytery’s churches rejoices, we all rejoice; and, when one suffers, we all join in that suffering. More importantly because we are a connectional church, we are called to respond. Last winter’s one-two punch set a lot of you reeling under the burden of increased snow removal expenses.

In response, the Council and Trustees sent a proposal to the last Stated Meeting to provide a grant of up to $1000.00 to each church so affected. The measure was approved late in the meeting, so anyone not present and not having read the Council report in the pre-pack is probably not aware of this offer.

Americorps need your help

The new Americorps NCCC team will be arriving next Monday, September 15-November 4

As most of you know, these young men and women sign up for a year of service with Americorps, performing community service projects throughout their assigned region.   We are lucky enough to once again have them assigned to Bergen County!   The team will be staying at Felician College, and working with Rebuilding Together Bergen County, assisting on job sites in Bergen County, mainly in Moonachie and Little Ferry, NJ.

We are once again asking for donations of meals for this team.   Dinner will be provided by Felician College, but lunches are still needed.

There will be a total of 7 team members, with one member being lactose intolerant.   We will be able to accommodate this member as needed.
