A Space for Everyone

We were the first church in the state of New Jersey (in 1940) to host an AA meeting and are proud to have been blessing and marrying LGBTQ+ couples since 1991. But it doesn’t stop there! We have weekly Sunday worship, various activities and groups to join, and year-round community events.

BOOK GROUP

July 29 – We will discuss NORTH WOODS by Daniel Mason. Please contact Veronica for the link. Reading the book is not essential to joining our discussion, so if you are inclined, please drop in whether you have read it or not. Please support your local bookshop and Redeemer by ordering from our online Bookshop by clicking here. https://bookshop.org/shop/Redeemer

The Serendipity Stitchers extend a warm welcome to you.

Are you passionate about fiber arts? Have you ever wished to be part of a knitting circle? Join us on Tuesdays at 1:30 p.m., in person in the parlor on  7/16. Our session on 7/23 will be held via Zoom.

We’d be delighted for you to join us. We offer yarn, needles, hooks, instruction, and engaging conversation—and sometimes cookies! Please contact Veronica for more information and the link for Zoom.

Earth Ministry & Environmental Sustainability: With July being Disability Pride Month, we have many disabled leaders in climate chaos. One shining person is Greta Thunberg of Sweden, who is an autistic climate activist, known worldwide (and I preached on her in a previous Season of Sacred Storytelling.) She continues to passionately and prophetically speak truth to power and international organizations, make bold actions in her protests around the world, and activate other young people’s voices, all with a sense of urgency. We still need to hear her message for our world and younger generations, who will be inheriting the world in crisis from us.

Garden of Hope: We are growing! When we visited the Table of Hope for a quick orientation last week, we began to see more of this ministry in the need for food for our neighbors, who were waiting, and resources and donations, in the set-up that happens every Thursday, as well as the mobile Food Pantry of the Table of Hope. We look forward to soon donating fresh veggies to feed our neighbors in this Food Security Ministry. They are also looking for donations to stay open this summer. If you would like to be involved in this ministry, in small or big ways, see Peg on Sunday or email her at pegonplanetearth(at)gmail.com

Welcome!

Rev. Cynthia Black
The Rev. Cynthia Black, D.D., Rector (Retired)

Welcome to Redeemer! We are not just a building in the community– we are a community! We gather online and in person for worship, in person to participate in activities like our Garden of Hope food security ministry or helping clean up the Whippany River, and online for lively book discussions and forward-looking racial and ethnic reconciliation work. I would love to welcome you at any of these things, and hear what you are looking for.

Yours in faith,
The Church of the Redeemer
