  • Monday Evenings in Lent Adult Study

    An Adult study about the 7 christian virtues

    This Lent, come to the desert; to a place of silence, solitude, and quiet surrender where we look for God’s transforming power. We will use a video prepared by ChurchNext, a store house of great formation material specifically designed for Episcopal parishes. This series will consist of five consecutive Monday evenings, beginning March 2 at 7:00 pm.  A group discussion will follow the video. Those who are able, please join us ahead of time (6:30 pm) for a simple supper of soup, salad and bread. There is no cost for this program, but please RSVP with the church office so that enough food is prepared.

  • Fill the Ark...again!

    2020 Lenten Alms Project

    Once again, it's the season of Lent. The season of the church year when we as Christians compare how we love God and others with the love of Christ. A time to reflect on how we live our lives in the light of our Baptismal Covenant. A time to practice "Christ-like love" through Prayer, Study, Fasting, and Almsgiving. Read on.

  • upcoming programs for Lent

    Morning Prayer, Mondays through Thursdays at 7:30 am in the Historic Church.  

    We will say the morning office from the Book of Common Prayer. It is a contemplative form of worship that is especially suited to our journey through Lent. This will begin on March 2.

    Saturday Morning Quiet Hour.  On Saturdays at 10 am in the Historic Church, an hour will be set aside for meditation, contemplation and prayer. A different style of Meditation will be explored each week.  

    Catechumenate. From the time of the early church, the catechumenate was observed as an organized time of Christian formation and education in preparation for baptism. Three sessions will be offered for preparation of baptism or renewal of baptismal vows.

    Reconciliation (Confession). Please see The Very Rev. Michael Way if you are interested in this rite as part of a Lenten journey (this can also be made at any point during the year)

  • White Elephant Sale - Thank you!

    Thank you to everyone--everyone who donated, organized & priced, cooked, and shopped at the White Elephant Sale on February 14th & 15th.  Special thanks to the Chaballa family for their hard work in chairing this successful and fun event. We raised over $4,500 for the Church General Fund! 

  • Coat and Essential needs drive - Thank you!

    Our collections of winter clothing and toiletries were delivered to Pilgrim Baptist Church in Red Bank for distribution to the local community. Thank you to the congregation for continuing to support this mission. We were able to deliver an entirely stuffed carload of items! And thanks to the youth group for helping to quickly load everything up. We look forward to continuing to support this mission next year.
