Good afternoon everyone! We pray that everyone is safe during this time of inclement weather. We still held our worship service despite the inclement weather conditions, although Sunday School was cancelled. For those who missed the service due to the weather, please watch our service when it is posted on YouTube sometime tomorrow.
We welcomed the Rev. Cheryl Daniel back to our pulpit. She is an ordained elder and licensed candidate for Minister of Word and Sacrament. She serves the Reformed Church of America as Youth Pastor of Faith Chapel Reformed Church in Paterson. Cheryl was called to the Gospel ministry in 2005, and has served as the body of Christ as a youth minister, worship leader preacher and teacher. She is employed at the Christian Healthcare center in Wyckoff.We also held the Valentine's Day Luncheon after the service downstairs in the Van Wyk Fellowship Hall. We would like to thank Mary Marino and the Fellowship Committee for putting everything together. It was a blessed time of food and Fellowship.
Pastor Christopher offers a weekly video message entitled "Christopher's Chat" to summarize his sermon series. Christopher's Chat will return next Sunday. There is no new episode this week.
We want to remind parents to communicate to their children to please not touch the sound system, organ, or copy machines. We have had several instances recently of these important church properties being turned on or adjusted. Please contact Pastor Christopher if you want to be trained on how to use this equipment. Thank you.
