Upcoming Events 

     The Consistory continues to uphold the difficult decision to keep the building closed until further notice. 

In consultation with an Infectious Disease specialist we discovered that we can not meet the requirements currently in place to safely reopen. We understand that this decision creates a hardship for some members and those who use our facilities for their meetings, but our primary concern is the health and safety of our members and guests. 
   We will revisit this question at each consistory meeting until we are able to reopen. If you have specific questions please do not hesitate to contact the church office at (973) 667-7022, or by email at frcnutley@optimum.net or use our contact page.

 

The Season of Lent

Ash Wednesday service

WEDNESDAY at 7:00pm on ZOOM  

If you would like to join us send an email with "Ash Wednesday worship"

in the subject line to frcnutley@optimum.net and we will send you a link .

Lenten Book Study

THURSDAYS Feb. 25, March 4, 11, 18 and 25 

from 6:30 - 8:00pm on ZOOM

The Lenten Book study will be on Thursday evenings via Zoom from 6:30– 8 pm for five weeks (February 25 & March 4,11,18 and 25). The book that we will be reading is What is the Bible? How an Ancient Library of Poems, Letters and Stories Can Transform the Way You Think and Feel About Everything by Rob Bell (2017, Harper One). The book is available for e-readers and in print at Barnes and Noble and Amazon (you can buy this through Amazon Smile and benefit the church - if you haven’t used this service yet get in touch with Pastor Jill who can walk you through the sign up). There are also (as of 2/1/21) several copies available through the

Nutley Public Library.

This is a series of short, easy to read essays which include answering questions like: Is the Bible the Word of God? Is it Authoritative? Is it Inspired? Is it inerrant? It also invites readers to hear the text of familiar Bible stories with “new ears.” Not surprisingly, there are critics as well as supporters of Mr. Bell’s view point - you will be invited to come and see (and hear) for yourself what you think.

Lenten Book study will be held on Thursday evenings, 2/25, 3/4,11,18 and 25, from 6:30 - 8:00 pm via ZOOM. If you are interested in being on the invitation list, email frcnutley@optimum.net. 

We have invited our friends from Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, Grace Episcopal Church and Vincent Methodist Church. Guests from other traditions are also welcome to join us.

 

Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, Easter
We will be worshiping together on these days. But as of right now we don't know what that will look like. Check back as we get closer. Will we need to stay on ZOOM or will we be able to gather in person? We will let you know as soon as possible!
