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’.

Annual Memorial Day Convocation

9:00am Memorial Day – Monday, May 30

Old Stone Church

481 East Saddle River Road

Upper Saddle River, NJ 07458

201-327-5242

When most people think of Memorial Day, visions of parades, VFW Posts, high school bands, and moving speeches at town halls come to mind. Our attention is directed to those who gave their lives in defense of our country, as it should be. It is also important to remember those who returned home, many wounded in body and spirit, attempting to rebuild new lives, families, and communities.

The cemetery at the Old Stone Church in Upper Saddle River stands as a witness to those who fought, served, and returned to our communities since the Revolutionary War. The history of our country can be seen in the American flags that identify our veterans of war who came home to make the peace we enjoy within our communities.

Join with community members as you begin Memorial Day (May 30 – 9:00am) in thanksgiving to God and to those who have served their country. A Book of Remembrance will be part of the ceremony. It includes deceased family and friends who were veterans, Merchant Marine, WASP, and other axillaries that served during war time. If you would like to have a person memorialized, please call the Church Office, no later than Friday, May 27 (noon) at 201-327-5242.
