  5. Looking for a Church Home?   Join our next NEW MEMBER CLASS.   Learn what it means to be a member of First Presbyterian. We offer members of all ages opportunities to join in fellowship and expand their faith experiences. Please email the Church Office.
  6. Summer Pickup Choir Now through August 28, anthems will be sung by volunteers from the congregation as well as current members of The Chorale. If you have thought it would be fun to sing choral music, now would be an excellent opportunity to give it a try. We will rehearse an easy anthem each Sunday morning from 9:15 to 9:45 a.m. throughout the summer -- which will then be sung during the worship service that follows. Since choir robes are not worn during the summer months, Sunday church attire (non-distracting) is preferred. The summer pickup choir is basically informal. Just show up and sing!
  7. Lay Readers   Sign up now on the notice board in Fellowship Hall. New readers welcome. If you have any questions, please call Joan Fraser.
  8. Coffee Hour Hosts Wanted! Please email the Congregational Life Committee if interested.
  9. Skeet's Pantry For our Food Pantry  Wish List: PASTA - any and all types; Peanut Butter and Jelly - one of our favorite staples; Tuna Fish - packed with protein; Cereal - Large nutritious family-size boxes are ideal; Pasta Sauce -last but not least, something to top off the pasta! And if you have some "miscellaneous" items on your own shelves which you would like to donate, that's fine, too.  Please drop items at the church office or in the wheel barrow outside the Sanctuary during church on Sunday. NO OUT-OF-DATE food can be accepted. Thank you.
  10. VBS 2016 Living Waters for the World:
    July 25-29 9 am - 12 pm. 
    Check out the VBS Giving Tree in the Fellowship Hall. Take a tag with a supply printed on it that we need for VBS and bring that supply back to the tree in the weeks to come.

    Children will learn how "Jesus Christ is Living Water for our Bodies and our Souls". They will also learn the importance of access to clean water for health, and the way in which this access (or lack of access!) affects children in other countries, the value of water in our own lives and conservative use. Each day focuses on a different country, a Bible story, a mission story, activities & crafts, recreation & snacks, music, reflection & a closing time.  Register Here through mid-July.

    Volunteer with VBS! The VBS team is looking for 4 more assistant teachers, each of whom will work with a lead teacher to shepherd students from station to station as we make our way through the VBS day. No experience with VBS or Christian Education at Cranbury is necessary, only a willingness to share God's love with God's children. If you are available the week of July 25 - 29, 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. (or available for most of the week), and are willing and able to help as an assistant teacher, please let Pastor Hannah know! In person, by email (firstpreshannah@comcast.net) or at the office (609-395-0897). Thanks for considering!
  11. Website Content Changes - Send requests to webmaster@cranburypres.org.
