Sandy Relief

Our Classis has been asked to support a shelter in Staten Island as they serve those displaced by this week’s storm.  What they need is very specific:

  • new towels (for bathing)
  • new socks and underwear (both men’s and women’s)
  • new sweatpants and sweatshirts for adults (large and XL)
  • diapers
  • big black garbage bags
  • blankets

If you would like to donate any of these items, please bring them to the church this Sunday,  They will be brought to the Reformed Church where they will be collected on Monday and then they will be brought to New York City this coming Tuesday.  Please let your friends and neighbors know about this opportunity that is targeted to help people directly in exactly the way it will help most.  Thank you for your prayerful and generous response to this special 

Vacation Bible School

Vacation Bible School has a great week August 13-17.  We averaged about 57 children and 20 teachers and helpers each day.  Our theme was “Sonrise National Parks.”    The children learned a daily promise each day through words and singing: True Peace, True Riches, True Power, True Love and True Hope.
We had great singers every day.  This year we also used the music DVD that came with our program.  Many of us had the song “A Cool Cool Summer” in our heads for awhile.  The children did a really great job with the actions.  We had many delicious snacks each day.
The offering we received each day was used to buy school supplies for a student that we adopted from the Hilltown Resource Center.  Also, we were able to give three gift cards.  The closing program was held at noon on the last day of VBS.  The classes presented skits and sang their favorite songs they learned hat week.  As the program ended everyone headed outside for a picnic lunch.  We were pleased that about 120 people enjoyed the picnic and Stewarts provided us with ice cream sundaes.
Thank you to all who helped support VBS through monetary contributions, supplies and prayers.  It was a very successful week.
