Church held a special
collection for tsunami victims
New Utrecht Reformed Church held a special collection on Sunday, January 9 for the victims of the Dec. 26, 2004
tsunami that swept across 15 countries in Asia and Africa. The church raised $1,000, which will be sent to Reformed Church World Service.
In addition to Sunday's collection, the following resources are available to help the millions of victims of the tsunami, from RCA.ORG:
You can help by:
1. Praying for the survivors and the staff helping with the recovery.
2. Contributing to the "Asian Tsunami" fund established by RCWS. Money will be needed for many years to support emergency relief and long-term rebuilding and recovery efforts. Contributions designated for "Asian Tsunami" may be sent to Reformed Church in America, P.O. Box 19381, Newark, NJ 07195-1938 or, in Canada, to Regional Synod of Canada, RR #4, Cambridge, ON N1R 5S5. To make a credit card donation (Visa or MasterCard), call the Michigan Regional Center at (800)968-3943, ext. 210, or click on "Make a Donation."
3. Assembling "Gift of the Heart" health kits that are urgently needed in the CWS warehouse in New Windsor, Maryland, for shipment as requested by partners in the twelve countries affected by the Asian tsunami.
Thank you for your cards, letters, contributions, and prayers. We are grateful for your partnership as we respond to this terrible tragedy.
English - Korean Ash Wednesday service
Because the Rev. Terry Troia's mother was in a
car accident, Terry did not jointly minister at the service with the
Rev. Young Min Kim, pastor of the Mirral Church, so he ministered alone
and he and Elder Susan Hanyen, the Vice-President of the consistory at
New Utrecht Reformed Church, distributed the ashes.
Ongoing Food Pantry
Deacon Debbie Siciargo is in charge of the Lenten Food Pantry. As we prepare for Lent, 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. Food collected this Lent will be forwarded to Project Hospitality on Easter Sunday.
Jackson County Ministries Clothing
Please donate new clothing to the Parish House before service on Feb. 20 and 27 and Mar. 6. The clothes will be collected on March 6 and donated to Jackson County Ministries.
Saturday, June 18: Commissioning dinner
A commissioning dinner celebrating the Rev. Terry Troia's 10th anniversary as minister of this church will be held on Saturday, June 18 at the Mount Manresa Jesuit Retreat House on Staten Island.
Donations are needed for the
restoration of our sanctuary. Silk flower arraignments will be provided on
Sundays in lieu of fresh flowers in order to dedicate flower donations to the
restoration of the sanctuary. We will continue to print dedication information
in the bulletin. Your donation of $20 weekly will be given to the restoration
fund. Families will not receive flowers.
Study series for new believers
Each week we have an education series for new believers! Join us after
church at 12:30 PM for a half hour study time.
Extra envelopes for the Restoration Fund
Extra envelopes will be provided for the New Utrecht Reformed Church
Fund at each Sunday service. Please contribute generously.
