Dear Church Family & Friends,
We are responding with joy that State regulations allow now also for a successive re-opening of the Church. Subsequently, our Consistory (church board) is opening our worship life in two steps:
Effective Sunday, June 20, 2021, the following changes will take place:
- We will lift the limit of 50 persons for worship and end the requirement to pre-register for worship attendance.
- Fully vaccinated persons will no longer be required to wear masks. Fully vaccination includes a two-week period after the first (Johnson & Johnson) or the second vaccine (Pfizer, Moderna). Not vaccinated worshippers continue to be required to wear a mask while in the building.
Beginning Sunday, September 12, 2021, the Consistory has implemented the following changes:
- The pre-pandemic schedule of serving Communion on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of each month will resume.
- The weekly offering will again be presented during worship. Until then, please continue to either drop your offering in the plate in the narthex or continue to deliver it during the week; sending it by mail; or have a check sent by your bank.
Erring on the side of caution and with concern for those of us who are more vulnerable than others, the Consistory has postponed the decision on congregational singing. It will deliberate the issue again during its September session. For now, we can, unfortunately, only listen to the familiar tunes.
Hand sanitizer will continue to be available in the narthex and in the bathrooms. The bathrooms will be cleaned and sanitized according to the strict rules for daycare centers at this time.
May God continue to shelter us in this still difficult time!
Spotswood Reformed Church is a congregation of the Reformed Church in America. Historically, the denomination has its roots in the Protestant Church of the Netherlands. It was organized in 1628 in New York City then New Amsterdam. The Spotswood congregation was founded in 1821 and has been a community church ever since. As Reformed Christians we believe in the lordship of Christ in all matters of life. Faith development and inclusive worship services form the basis for a variety of charitable ministries. Woodmere Senior Housing and Pixie Preschool were started by our church in order to address specific needs in the community. Today, we are a vibrant church family with an open and loving attitude. Our members come from communities like Spotswood, Helmetta, East Brunswick, Old Bridge, Jamesburg, and Monroe.
Our Pastor, Rev. Hartmut Kramer-Mills, values ministry that is pastoral and relational, and yet open to the world in which we live. Interfaith work is important to him. Hartmut’s sermons and his style of ministry are personal and engaging. His years as a college teacher with a doctorate in church history and his international experience add a distinct flavor to the way we do ministry here.
