Deacons Doings:  July/August 2018 InSpire Report

The First Presbyterian Church of Boonton Board of Deacons is always looking for extra hands to help with our missions.  If you have the time and the interest – we would love to have you join us!

Deacons Donations:  Just a friendly reminder that on the 1st Sunday of the month the Deacons collect monetary donations (whatever you can spare – big or small!) during the offering.  The Deacons envelopes, which are green, can be found in the pews.

Chancel Flowers:  There are still some remaining Sunday’s available to sign up for the chancel flowers on Sunday’s.  They are a beautiful way to honor a loved one or a celebration.  The cost is normally about $40.  If interested, please sign up on the flower chart which is located on the bridge.

Food Pantry:  Maybe you are new to the church or maybe you just need a reminder – but we are always looking for non-perishable food items and personal care items to be donated to the Town of Boonton food pantry (Boonton Social Services).  The next time you are out grocery shopping or browsing the isles at Walmart or Target – please grab a few extra items of food or especially personal care items and drop it off at the church (on the rack in the hallway of Reighart Hall).

New Jersey State Firemen’s Home worship services:  On the first Sunday of every month our Deacons and volunteers continue to provide worship services to the men of the firemen’s home.  If you have a musical talent or enjoy speaking to others, please consider volunteering to help us in the rewarding experience.  Future open Sundays include: August 5th and September 2nd.  Please contact Dave Scelba or Mike Stora if you are interested.

Meal Train:  The Deacons are continuing to organize getting meals for those within our congregation who are dealing with difficult times.  If you would like to be a part of the Meal Train (such as making meals for families and those in need), please reach the Sandy DeCarlo (Church Administrator) and she will put you on our Meal Train list.  Contact Kim Riter at 201-602-4924 if you have some computer skills and might be interested in helping to initiate the Meal Train as needed.  This requires a very small-time commitment.

SAVE THE DATE:  Visiting Nurse Association (VNA) of Northern NJ:  The VNA of Northern NJ Speakers Bureau will be returning to FPCB on September 23rd to present a presentation on “Diabetes and You” – Save the date!

And as always –  We appreciate your donations, continued support and assistance.  THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
