Thanksgiving Day Family Service
Our Thanksgiving Family Worship Service will be live streamed Thanksgiving Day at 11:00 am from the Auditorium. With the Covid pandemic worsening, and in-person attendance guidelines in flux, please stay tuned for a communication from the pastoral team about whether or not, or how much, in-person attendance may be available at that service.

Thanksgiving food drop off
For those of you who would like to make a Thanksgiving donation of food for the Northfield Township Food Pantry, we will place a couple of plastic bins on a table in the turn-around outside at the front of the church. The bins will be in place on Sunday after worship. Feel free to pull up in your car anytime from Sunday afternoon through Thanksgiving Day, and place your items in one of the bins. The bins will be emptied on a regular basis through the week.
Note: The Pantry currently has plenty of food, and is overstocked in some items.
What they most need right now is the following:
• Jelly/jam/preserves
• Rice mixes (Rice-a-Roni, Zatarain’s, ect.)
• Juice boxes
Thank you in advance for your thoughtful and generous donations.
