The Worship Bulletin for Sunday is below.
Dear Church Family & Friends,
You have heard with joy that State regulations allow for a successive re-opening of the Church. Currently, 50 persons is the maximum number for our sanctuary. The number includes staff, leaders, and regular worshippers. We will now offer in-person worship again! We do encourage all those of us who are especially vulnerable to continue to attend worship online.
In order to manage the number of our worshippers, we will require registration. If you plan to attend any given Sunday, please call or email the office at 732.251.9277 (firstname.lastname@example.org). The deadline for registration is the previous Friday by 1:00 pm.
When you come on Sunday mornings, only the main church entrance will be open. For those who find the stairs difficult, the elevator will also be available.
Please bring your won mask. Even if you help to lead worship, you can only take it off while performing your concrete leadership function. We will also have masks on site for those who may require it.
Only every other pew will be open for use, and only three persons may sit in it: two one each end, and one in the middle. Paper cones will mark these places. The only exceptions are couples and families who will be allowed to sit together.
The spaces for our children to sit during the children sermon are marked with masking tape. Children from the same immediate family may sit together. Due to the limited space, we ask that our youth and young adults remain in the pews so that only the children come forward.
We cannot collect the weekly offering in the traditional way. But we offer a choice: you can either drop it 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.
Hand sanitizer will 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 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.
