A BIG THANK YOU!

Wyoming Presbyterian Church would like to say THANKS to Millburn and the surrounding communities for their continued generosity and support of our annual mission and outreach fundraiser. We so appreciate all of you who wait patiently to buy your pumpkins from us.

For about three weeks each October, our lawn is covered with pumpkins from a Navajo Reservation in Farmington, NM.  We had another successful year in sales in spite of the on again off again weather.  We want you to know that 100% of the proceeds from the Patch are distributed to local and regional charities as well as a percentage returned to the Reservation.   Some of the local missions that benefit from your generosity are The Interfaith Hospitality Network, The House of Mercy Mission, and The Elizabeth Coalition to House the Homeless as well as to Hurricane relief through Presbyterian Disaster Assistance. Again, thank you for supporting the Patch and we look forward to seeing you October 3, 2020! God Bless!

September 5, 2019

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

Interim Pastor

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.

The Book and the Bear Project

And they are off…to Cleveland School to deliver 3775 books and 1034 stuffed animals to encourage summer reading and literacy. This collection of books is a tribute to kindergarten teacher Debbie Wright at South Mountain School in South Orange. She lives the spirit of CLB with her children every day.

“Start Children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.” Proverbs 22:6

The Church Left the Building Sunday, June 9

Your life is a gift from God. Be a Blessing.
On June 9, we gathered in the Sanctuary at 10:00 am and then – ‘Left the Building’ to engage in a variety of mission projects. (A few of them will actually be in the building, but they are all designed to serve others.)
