Dear members and friends of Wyoming Presbyterian Church,

            Writer Anne Lamott has said before, “Almost everything will work again if you unplug it for a few minutes, including you.” Even if you were not able to take time off this summer, hopefully the season brought for you and yours opportunities to unplug, to breathe a little easier, to rest and rejuvenate. To even be still and know that God is God.

            Though we are not in any kind of special liturgical season, this is a time of year when our rhythms shift.  Labor day, that day in which people of all trades and professions rest, serves as a final reboot for all of us before the new beginnings that fall brings-new schools, new activities, and for us at the church, a new programmatic year.  I would like to mention some highlights as we look towards an exciting upcoming Autumn at Wyoming Presbyterian:

  • Children’s Activities: We are beyond excited that Sabrina Legiec will be joining our church staff as our Children’s ministry coordinator. Sabrina has a strong faith and lots of enthusiasm for children and youth, as well as having served as a nurse manager prior to discerning a vocational shift. Look for exciting events geared towards children this year, as well as new programming in Sunday School.
  • Mission Activities: Activities abound if you are looking to give back to the community and to be transformed in the process. House of Mercy Mission, Team Refugee, Slave Free Community Project, and the list goes on and one. And of course, on October 5th the pumpkins will arrive for our Pumpkin Patch—a fundraiser so large is literally covers the WPC lawn for most of October.
  • Music Ministries: Steven Shellman and Ebony Wiggins have been busy preparing special musical offerings for the fall. New this year will be a “mini musical” that the children will perform in December. More details to come!

For specifics on the many activities in our vibrant community, please check out our website at wyomingpresbyterian.org or our facebook page (“Wyoming Presbyterian Church”) for more details.  As you “plug” back in to the fall, I hope you will join us as we as a community of faith continue to walk the path of faith together.

Blessings abound,

Rev. Caroline Unzaga

Summer collection for M.E.N.D.

Shelf-safe milk and (low sugar) cereal, Peanut Butter, and canned soup (low sodium) to contribute to M.E.N.D.’s Hunger Busters Summer Program.

How to contribute: Bring to church on Sunday and/or leave in the bin by the entrance to Open Door Nursery School

M.E.N.D. During the school year, many children have access to federally-funded school-based lunch and breakfast programs. During the summer, only 19% of children in New Jersey who are eligible for free or reduced-price meals in school are able participate in a summer feeding program due to distance or capacity constraints.
To fill this meal gap, MEND’s Summer Hunger Busters program provides supplemental food packages to families in need with school-aged children. To learn more about M.E.N.D. click HERE.

STAR QUEST  – A Search for the Lost Scriptures

SEE PICTURES BELOW

In a galaxy far away, and in a future not too distant, the crew of the spaceship Star Quest J-316 are on a mission: trekking through the galaxy, bringing the Word of God to people everywhere! In the future, all written communication is now sent and stored digitally – nothing is written on paper. The Bible is stored on the Intergalactic Bible Database, allowing all people access to God’ Word. But there is a radical plot underway by a misguided, power-hungry ruler who is steadily erasing scriptures from the database. The crew of J-316 has just landed on a planet whose inhabitants still employ the age-old practice of Bible memorization. With the Word of God hidden in their hearts, they offer to go back to the ship with the crew to help restore the lost scriptures. But will they be able to stop the plot to steal the scriptures away? Time is of the essence, and nothing in this world or beyond could be more important than making sure God’s Word remains available to all people throughout the galaxy!

Confirmation Class 2019

Sunday May 5, 2019 WPC confirmed six young people into the life of our church.

Gracious God, by water and the Spirit, you claimed us as your own, cleansing us from sin,  and giving us new life. You made us members of your body, the church, calling us to be your servants in the world. Renew in each member of the Confirmation Class, the covenant you made in their baptism. Continue the good work you have begun in them. Send them forth by the power of your Spirit    to love and serve you with joy. Amen.
