A Children’s Easter Message

I don’t know about you but I am super excited for our Easter Jam experience this year! Watch the video above with your kids for some fun activities and a very inventive telling of the story of Easter.

Ready for a virtual egg hunt? Since we cannot have our annual Easter egg hunt at church this year, I would like for everyone to join in on our virtual egg hunt.

Here’s how it will work, all day on Easter I would like each family to take one photo of eggs hidden in a area and post it on  Instagram, so we can have the children look for the eggs in the photo. Let us know in the caption how many eggs are hidden in the picture. And send you Easter greetings, Can you find them all? Let’s be creative and make this fun for everyone! I miss you all and can’t wait until we can all worship in community together.

In Christ, Sabrina Legiec

Maundy Thursday 4/9

Thursday April 9 |  Maundy Thursday  
Our Wyoming tradition has been to gather together as a church family in Fellowship Hall to partake in a meal to commemorate the last supper of Jesus with his disciples. Although this year we cannot physically be together, you can tune in to celebrate this holy meal with Pastor Caroline with musical offerings from Steven Shellman. To prepare for this service, try to have some sort of bread and a beverage available to participate in Communion. This service will be available for viewing anytime after 5:00 pm.

A Mid-Week Classic

We hope that this correspondence finds you well and healthy amidst this unprecedented pandemic, quarantine, and heartbreaking loss in an ever narrowing circle of connection. 
 
Our presbytery leaders, Warren McNeill and Barbara Smith, have been in touch with congregations and clergy since the beginning of this pandemic. They have shared recommendations on church building closures based on the directives of the CDC, and the States of New Jersey and New York, and compiled helpful articles from reputable sources on the Newark Presbytery website.
 
At its May 12 meeting, the Vision Accountability Board voted unanimously to create a task force to expand the conversations around reopening our church buildings.  That task force is now comprised of Rev. Dr. Barbara Smith, Elder Warren McNeill, Rev. Maria Crompton (Elmwood), Rev. Dan Martian (Livingston), Elder Carlos Monteagudo, MD, MPH (Bloomfield Church on the Green) and Elder Tia Goss Sawhney, DrPH, FSA, MAAA (First Newark).   On Thursday, May 21 the task force met via Zoom for in depth, thorough conversation, the basis of which we write to you today. 
 
We know that some of our congregations are anxious to return to in-person worship in your church buildings.  Others have taken official steps to continue only virtual worship into September and October.  Others have said they don’t feel comfortable returning to in-person worship until a vaccine is created.  We have crafted today’s letter from both theological and scientific positions – which lead us to recommend that our church buildings remain closed and worship remain virtual until at least September 12.  Why?

Covid-19 Message for March 24, 2020

Dear Wyoming Church community, As the situation with the COVID-19 pandemic continues to unfold, I am writing to you to share our latest update. Given Governor Phil Murphy’s order for New Jerseyians to shelter-in-place, our Session Task Force has decided to suspend in-person worship and gatherings for the foreseeable future.

You may have heard people say, “The church was never a building.” And yet, we must acknowledge that this is heartbreaking.  Collectively, we mourn worshipping and doing ministry in the same space.  And as we look towards Easter and even beyond to Wyoming’s Church-Has-Left-the-Building event, we can’t help but feel the loss of celebrating in the sanctuary—the place in which we are gathered and from where we are sent.

Even still, our ministry continues, because, in fact, the church is not a building. Our community is the church. And so through the phone, mail and 21st century technology, we continue to reach out to each other. You are not alone.

Please continue to stay connected to our vibrant and welcoming community.  Worship with Wyoming Church on Sunday virtually through Facebook Live (https://www.facebook.com/wyomingpres/). And for information on how to subscribe to our You Tube Channel, make a contribution to Wyoming Church, sign up for our weekly email, or to contact our office, please visit our website (https://wyomingpresbyterian.org).  And as always, feel free to reach out to me or the office with any question or concern.

Friends, during these troubling times in which we have left our sanctuary, let us find refuge in God and in each other. For the Psalmist reminds us that even when the mountains shake in the heart of the sea, God is our help amidst the trouble.

Blessings abound,

Rev. Caroline S. Unzaga

Interim Pastor, Wyoming Presbyterian Church

“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change,

Though the mountains shake in the heart of the sea.”

Psalm 46: 1-2
