BBQ ON THE HILL
On Saturday, January 13th, at 5:30 pm we’ll gather on the hill for our monthly BBQ. The grill will be hot and you can bring something to grill or a dish to share. As always, we’ll finish the evening with a fireside chat (and some roasted marshmallows!). See the announcement about missional communities below.
On Sunday, January 13th we will be welcoming new members to the body of Christ at St. Croix Reformed Church. Please mark your calendars to join in the celebration and extend a warm welcome. If you are interested in joining the church on this date, please see Pastor Peter.
Please mark your calendars for Sunday, January 20th. We will be meeting for our annual congregational meeting during which time you will be invited to approve a budget, elect new leaders, ask questions, express hopes and concerns for the future. It’s crucial that we have as many voices as possible present for this meeting. Your voice is important.
PASTOR PETER’S INSTALLATION
Pastor Peter has been servicing SCRC for over a year and it’s finally time to make it officially official. The Classis of NY has approved this call. Pastor Peter has traveled to NYC for an official welcome. The only remaining step is to host a service of installation. Please plan to celebrate together on Sunday, January 27th.
We have spent the last four months at our BBQ on the hill framing a ministry. Even if you haven’t participated, you’re invited to share some ideas about how we might be the hands and feet of Jesus out in the community and witness to the kingdom of God as ambassadors of Christ. More simply, how is Jesus calling us to make a difference on St. Croix?
A missional community is a group of people, about the size of an extended family (15-30 people), who gather for a sense of belonging and around a common purpose: being the hands & feet of Jesus in the world.
