Project Hospitality Food Pantry
Remember, between now and November 19th we will be collecting food for Project Hospitality's Food Pantry. Items needed include: pasta, canned tomato sauce, vegetables, tuna, fruit, meat, cereals.

One Great Hour of Sharing
We will also be collecting money for One Great Hour of Sharing! This money will provide life saving relief to poor people throughout the world.

Please give up a meal, a movie, a video. Make a financial sacrifice for the poor. Dedicate your donation in memory or in honor of a loved one or to celebrate a birthday, etc.. We will print such dedications in our bulletin on Sunday, November 19th.

Please remember our food drive and our One Great Hour of Sharing Commitment! Fill out the form enclosed with the bulletin and dedicate your offering to the memory or honor of a loved one! The form must be handed in no later than Sunday, November 14th, for inclusion in the Thanksgiving Sunday Service Bulletin on November 21st!

Last year we raised close to $700,
This year I know we can raise more!

Study series for new believers
This week we begin an education series for new believers! Join us after church at 12:30 PM for a half hour study time.

Thank you!
Many thanks to the goblin and ghost helpers who made Halloween a blest event for the children of our community! Thank you Elder Louise & committee for organizing a delightful frightful time!

Sunday, November 7: Consistory meeting
On Sunday, November 7 a regular consistory meeting will take place after service at the Friends of Historic New Utrecht office on the second floor of the Parish House.

Commissioning event postponed
The commissioning event on October 17 celebrating the Rev. Terry Troia's 10th anniversary as minister of this church has been postponed until May 2005.

Thank you!
To Maria Campanella, the Ice Cream Girl, for holding a Memorial Concert in front of our church on 9/11.  She produced a fine concert with patriotic songs and helped raise funds to restore our church.

Our thanks to everyone who made Saturday's participation in the Columbus Day Parade and the reception following a wonderful success!

Special thanks to Rose Lood!

Ice Cream Girl receives Liberty Medal
Maria Campanella, the Ice Cream Girl who held a 9/11 memorial concert on the lawn of New Utrecht Church, won the Lifetime Achievement Medal, a Liberty Medal sponsored by the New York Post.

Campanella, who among other things is MADD Brooklyn coordinator, who raises a "community garden" along the Belt Parkway and at one time saved a man's life, raised hundreds of dollars on behalf of Friends of Historic New Utrecht at the 9/11 concert.

Extra envelopes for the Restoration Fund
Extra envelopes will be provided for the New Utrecht Reformed Church Restoration Fund at each Sunday service. Please contribute generously. 

Ongoing food drive
Deacon Debbie Siciargo has started a ongoing Food Drive. The donations are somewhat less than expected. Please buy a little extra of nonperishable food for the needy and bring the items to the collection basket at the Parish House before service.

Pray for...
Alice Hightower;
Marion Hodgman who is seriously ill;
Fr. Jack Ryan's mother;
Anna Schroeder, who is back home from the hospital and
the Rev. Bob Peterson, our organist, who suffers from Parkinson's Disease.
