Sunday's service will be held in the Sanctuary with social distancing, masks and, sadly, no congregational singing. In addition, the services WILL CONTINUE be livestreamed on on our Church Facebook Page and Zoom. During the Livestream, you can ask questions, comment, and submit prayer requests. If you need help, the Deacons are providing technical support. We look forward to worshiping with you in person and on line!
For the rest of October, we’ll continue our series of lay-led services on the parables. Please be sure to join us and to support your fellow church members as we continue our search for a new pastor.
Good News! The Reverend David Cotton has agreed to provide us with preaching and pastoral care for four weeks starting Nov. 1. If this works out well for us and for him, we hope he will continue to serve us longer, while the PNC finds the pastor God is calling to us.
Pastor David recently retired from his position as head chaplain at Jersey Shore University Medical Center, bringing an end to a 26-year career. Hired as the hospital’s chaplain, he helped guide the hospital through 9/11 and superstorm Sandy, through the AIDS epidemic and during the Covid pandemic. He officiated employees’ weddings, baptized their children, conducted funerals, and comforted patients and their families.
Rev. Cotton lives in Point Pleasant with his wife, Margaret. They have a son, Dan, and a daughter, Allison. He also supports Manasquan Presbyterian Church, where he officiates occasionally. We are fortunate to find him available to us at this time.
Sunday School Registration The Christian Education Commission and the Worship and Music Commission is working closely together to make sure that our return to the building is the safest experience for everyone. They are working on a proposal to start Sunday School in October. Please use the attached form to register your child for Sunday School.

CHRIS FIORE MESSAGE Oct. 18, 2020
Scripture: Matthew 13:24-30; 36-43
DON'T MISS ...
Our contemporary service, which meets in our renovated chapel on Sundays from 9-9:45 a.m., features a warm, informal setting with musical leadership by a variety of praise teams.
This friendly congregation meets at 10:30 a.m. in a more traditional setting, with musical leadership by adult, children and bell choirs with piano or organ, along with a variety of instrumentalists, in a wide range of styles.
WORSHIP AND OUTREACH
Worship is at the heart of our life as a congregation. From September through early June, we worship at 9:00 and 10:30 a.m. each Sunday, as well as on special occasions such as Easter and Christmas. In the summer, we have one service at 9:30 a.m. in our air-conditioned sanctuary.
Our worship is grounded in the Reformed tradition. Under the direction of our pastor, it regularly involves adult and youth in leadership roles and includes a widely varied and inclusive music program. We seek to involve all worshipers in praying, singing, growing and sharing in a spirit of Christian community.
We have multiple outreach opportunities and a lively Christian Education program. Our capacious building hums with activity and welcomes community activities as well as church-related events.
