"He has told you, O mortal, what is good; and what does the Lord require
of you but to do justice, to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?"

SUPERSTORM SANDY AFFECTS US STILL!

Not only did our Sanctuary roof sustain serious damage from the storm, but there are still many people who are not back in their homes. For some, their homes will never be replaced. Recovery from the storm is more than opening a boardwalk or two. It means housing for those who still have no homes and help for those who need it.

Sunday worship Times are 10:30 AM until June 7th when they will be at 10 AM

Pastor's Message
The year 2015 has seen many anniversaries commemorated as part of the end of World War II. For most of us now living, this is not a memory, but history. As Europe celebrated liberation from Nazi terror in May, the war in the Pacific continued. During this time, the United States made the fateful decision to use the atomic bomb. The first target was the city of Hiroshima on August 6 and the second was Nagasaki on August 9. The world saw a new weapon of terror which created a climate of fear lasting until today.

Seventy years later, we are faced with new fears. As Christians, we must work to control not only the proliferation of atomic weapons but for a dialog even with those who oppose the values we hold dear.. We must learn to be peacemakers in a turbulent world.


Looking Ahead

August is a quiet month except for Saturday, August 22, from 9:30 to Noon when we will be packing items for the Calico Cat Food Pantry. Join us for this important work serving the needy in our community.


MISSION IS TO THE CHURCH AS A FIRE IS TO BURNING

Connect with organizations serving God's world – the Littoral Society, the New Jersey Sierra Club, Pinelands Preservation, and other groups working to preserve and protect the earth that God has given us.

Help the Calico Cat Thrift Shop, a store for the community operated by the Community Outreach Group that sells gently used items to persons who cannot afford even discount prices. It also has a food pantry. If you have a few hours during the week, the Calico Cat could use your help. Call (732) 671-0550 if you would like to help in this important ministry.
