Family Promise: We are very excited that we are again hosting homeless chil­dren and their families in April as part of our mercy ministry, Family Prom­ise. The families will arrive in the evening of April 1 and stay until April 15th. Our efforts assure that homeless parents continue to work, and their children continue to go to school. And this ultimately leads to Family Promise getting them into a home again. Contact Andreas VanDenend (a.vandenend@gmail.com/201-334-2048) if you have any questions or would like to volunteer.


The television broadcast of our worship service will be on a one week delay each Sunday from 10-11 a.m. on WMYG Cox Channel 11, part of the GTN family of affiliates.


Live streaming audio of our worship service is available on our website www.1stpc.org; click the play button under Live Online Service. If you are unable to join us Sunday morning, we invite you to visit our media archive on our website. Here you may watch or listen to this or other services at your convenience. Audio replay is usually available that evening with HD video normally accessible by Monday evening.
