We have a great selection of plants: annuals, hanging baskets, veggies and herbs. It’s a win, win! High quality plants with great prices, beautify your home from now until early fall and you’ll be making a difference by supporting our Appalachian Service Project. Ready for Mother’s Day, these plants make wonderful gifts! All plants are from Ace Greenhouses in Flemington. Many thanks to those of you who have already pre-ordered.
This fundraiser will help youth and adult volunteers from St. Mark’s (Basking Ridge) and St. Martin’s (Bridgewater), repair and restore homes in Appalachia this summer, making them warmer, safer and drier.

Come enjoy some great BBQ from chef Chuck Knill and music from our very own “Bluegrass” group (you may know them as Emma, Bruce, Boyd and Jim) as well as other musical guests. Food, music, and fellowship – what more could you ask for? Stay tuned for further details but do mark your calendars!
During the month of May in addition to our regular Sunday School lesson we will be practicing for our annual youth service. This year the Sunday School will be doing a skit called the "Two Little Pigs". If your child is interested in being part of our skit please let me know and I will provide the lines to practice. In addition, we will be presenting the first ever Chapel Orchestra. All Sunday School and youth group children are welcome to participate with any instrument they are learning to play. We will perform our rendition of "Joyful Joyful (Ode to Joy)" as never heard before. Starting this coming Sunday, if your child can already play Ode to Joy, we welcome them to play in the chapel. I will provide music transcribed for most instruments. For more information, contact John Lyga.
Come and join us for painting on a Tuesday, 12pm to 3pm in the large Sunday school classroom. We work on our own projects and help each other out. It’s fun, relaxing, and we’re a friendly group.
Any questions, contact Jenny Phillips
The sixth annual Freedom House 5K Run & 1 Mile Fun Walk
Saturday, May 11, 2019, at Duke Island Park, Bridgewater, NJ. Duke Island Park is a certified 5K course with a flat running path along the Raritan River; the one-mile fun walk will share part of the 5K course making for a great leisurely and scenic walk. This event is dog friendly as long as our furry companions are on a leash. With exhibitors, music and prizes it will be a great morning to come out to support a worthy cause and help reduce the stigma associated with the disease of addiction.
With the rising heroin epidemic, this event gives us a chance to promote health and wellness in the community while helping raise awareness and funds to help with Freedom House’s mission of reuniting families torn apart by alcohol and drug addiction.
If you miss the on-line registration option, – no worries – we will be accepting day of registrations beginning at 8:00 AM. Please note that registering the day of will be slightly higher than if you pre-register. We look forward to seeing everyone there!
