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
