Books can be purchased for $10.00 at the small group or during the week in the church office.
If you would like to participate in one of the following groups, sign up sheets are located outside of Pastor Jeff's office. Or you may call the church at 973-635-7740. All groups will start the week of Sunday, February 22-Thursday, February 26th.
In 2015, the concerts will feature the Triad Vocal Ensemble choir, the Dan Crisci Jazz Trio, the Hunterdon Harmonizers (men’s barbershop chorus) and Broadway-style singers Kristen Egan and Nina Elias, performing both sacred and secular music. Additionally, panels from the AIDS Memorial Quilt will be on display at each concert and a reception follows each performance.
To raise funds and raise awareness – all ticket proceeds will benefit the following charities which are concerned with the quality of life for persons with AIDS and the remembrance of lives lost: the AIDS Resource Foundation for Children, in Newark; the NAMES Project of Northern NJ, which supports the AIDS Memorial Quilt; and New Jersey AIDS Services (formerly The Eric Johnson House), which provides housing and services for those with AIDS and education to the community at large. Since the concerts began in 1997, over $115,000 has been raised in support of this ministry.
Paper copies of the Flower Dedication form can be found on the bulletin board across from Rev. Jeff Markay's office.
Please return the attached form to the church office, and enclose a check for $40.00, made payable to CUMC, to cover the cost of the flowers. This form will let our Communications Manager know how the dedication should read in the Sunday bulletin. Please make sure that the church office receives this form at least one week prior to the date of your flower donation.
