Thank you to everyone who contributed to the Pentecost Potluck! Special thanks to the Sunday School, Linda K and the Tuesday Night Crew for assisting in setup/breakdown!

Bishop Stokes Retirement Gala was livestreamed and you can watch it here. When Bishop Chip was ordained as our Bishop, one of the promises he made was to “boldly proclaim and interpret the Gospel of Christ, enlightening the minds and stirring up the conscience” of the people of the Diocese of New Jersey. He certainly accomplished this goal in many ways throughout his episcopate, especially in the founding of Episcopal Community Services of the Diocese of New Jersey (ECS-NJ).
ECS-NJ is an expression of Bishop Chip’s vision of a united diocese tackling immediate, community-identified human needs while relentlessly working against both social and racial injustice. Through education, advocacy, fundraising, grantmaking, and prayer, we strive for Gospel justice together as a Diocese.
In honor of the ministries of both Bishop and Susan Stokes, ECS-NJ will use the proceeds of the May 21 gala to establish The Stokes Endowment Fund to ensure the strength, viability, and sustainability of ECS-NJ. If you would like to contribute to the work of ECS-NJ, you can do so here.
Come to church this weekend for birthday and anniversary blessings!
