Saturday, Oct. 21 – Fellowship Hall – 10am to 3pm

ANNUAL CRAFT FAIR

   The crafts of all kinds, including art work, needle and yarn work, jewelry and more will be provided by vendors.  If you put off getting something last year, good news – many of our vendors are returning. 

   Need something but don’t want to pay full price, gently used items, collectables, furniture, toys and more will be available at Grandpa’s Attic. 

And don’t miss the food!  Soups, hotdogs, chicken fingers, desserts, and more.  Plenty of parking at 500 East Saddle River Road – upper and lower lots – as well as parking across the street on East Saddle River Road.

 

REFORMATION 500th ANNIVERSARY

SUNDAY, Oct. 29 – 10:00 am

Join in this special day as we commemorate the start of the Reformation in Wittenberg, Germany in 1517.  Martin Luther began by protesting the misinformation, fear, and dishonest practices being used in the sale of indulgences to fund the building of St. Peter’s in Rome.  While separation was not the goal of Luther, it became the only option when he was on trial to renounce his beliefs that Grace is freely given and that we are Justified before God by our faith alone.  Among his words, these stood out, “Here I stand, I can do no other.”

After Worship, we will join in the Fellowship Hall for a luncheon.

This event is open to the community. If you have ridden by the Old Stone Church and wondered what it is like inside, you are invited to be with us on this special day!
