DECEMBER – CHRISTMAS 2016

BLESSED ADVENT and MERRY CHRISTMAS

The Old Stone Church will be open every Sunday Morning at 10:00AM  for Worship – including Christmas Day.  Christmas Eve Family Worship is at 5:00PM. The traditional Candlelight Worship Service is at 8:00PM.  I hope you will join us in celebrating the Advent and Christmas Season in our early American sanctuary.  We are an open and affirming congregation sharing the Good News of Jesus.   to live our lives as Jesus would live our lives in our community.  If you have any questions about worship, who we are, and what we do, please call me, Pastor Bob Fretz at 201-788-6601.  If you see me around town at Elmer’s, Fresh Market, or Home Depot – feel free to say hi.  You will know it’s me driving around in my red pick-up truck or my tan motorcycle.

Peace and Blessings at Christmas

Pastor Bob Fretz

NOVEMBER 2016

A SEASON OF GRATITUDE

November is the month we celebrate the national holiday of Thanksgiving.  It is not a holiday based on battles, politics, or even particular religious observance.  It is a time we as a nation can gather together and give thanks.  As Christians, we see our gratitude going towards the blessings and strength God has given to us as he has called us to live as His children, adopted through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ.

Within our congregation, we see this as a time to offer our gifts and talents to the mission of the Church of Jesus Christ.  What we offer and how we offer it depends on our ability to answer the question “Why do we offer our gifts and talents?”

Take time to read this month’s newsletter to see the Season of Thanksgiving sermon series and the scriptures that lead us to the answer to ‘Why’.
