2017 Wednesday Lenten Noon Services
Join us on Wednesdays during Lent in the lounge of the Second Reformed Church for a time of devotion during the lunch hour, from 12:15 to 12:45 pm. You may come early and bring your lunch. Beverages (coffee & tea) and dessert will be provided. This year’s theme promises to bring us new insights as we explore the question, “What is most meaningful to me about Lent?”

The First Presbyterian Church of Hackensack has invited us to their Ash Wednesday Communion Service on March 1st at 7:30 p.m. They are located at 64 Passaic St.

We remember and give thanks for those members of the church who have gone before us to be with the Lord. We are comforted, as the Scriptures remind us, that both in life and in death we belong to the Lord. (Rom. 14:8).
We pray that God will make complete the union of our departed ones and Himself, and that we might one day share in the same eternal communion. We call to remembrance those members of the church who departed since we last observed All Saints Sunday:
Frank L. Conley
Charles F. Schneider, Jr.
Lucile Spinelly
Peter G. Banta
Alice Naprstek
