through mission, as we embody God's love in service to the World;
through study, as we listen for God's Word in body, spirit and mind;
through giving, as we express gratitude to God;
through fellowship, as we love and care for one another.

Fence Painting Project

Yay—the Manse fence is more than half way painted!! We hope you will come and help us do the rest! PLEASE, give us a bit of your time over the weekend or next week!!

The tall fence next to the west side of the Manse front walk (it faces south), needs two coats on both sides. Also, various sections of the picket fence (along the north and west side) need one or both sides painted—Note: Even the sections that are in need of repair can be propped up and painted—we will touch up afterwards as needed.

The latex paint, brushes and rollers (whatever method you prefer to paint with) and newspaper are in the garage. You can come and go any time that suits your schedule—just remember to wash your brush or roller when you are done.

Appreciatively, The Property Committee

Welcome James Goldsworthy 
Lamington's New Director of Music!

Jim Goldsworthy is honored to continue the beautiful work of Liza Calisesi as the new Music Director at Lamington Presbyterian Church. He has played in the church since 1963, first inspired to study piano and organ with Dorothe Lanning, Music Director of First Memorial Presbyterian Church of Dover, New Jersey. He played his first church service at Grace United Methodist Church (Dover) in July 1968, subsequently serving as organist at that same church from fall 1971 to the end of summer 1975. He has played worship services, performed concerts, and/or directed choirs in numerous houses of worship, including many different denominations, in the United States, Europe, Israel, and Japan, and for congregations of many different faiths from Anabaptists to Zen Buddhists. His most recent church position was as Organist and subsequently Interim Music Director of Trinity Presbyterian Church in East Brunswick, New Jersey.

IMPORTANT—We Need Your Help!
As the Lamington community begins its journey through this transition period to a new permanent pastor, communications will take on added importance. The Session is committed to keeping the Congregation informed as to progress/next steps in the search—initially for a temporary pastor and ultimately the permanent pastor, along with current events that are happening at Lamington Presbyterian Church (LPC).
Two such critical communication methods that we will be using for sending out announcements are—the LPC email distribution list and the hard copy Church Directory.
Here is how you can help:
Your email address: If you have an email, but are not on the LPC email distribution list, we invite you to join by sending an email to Regina Morris, Office Manager, at lamchurch@aol.com with details. If you currently have an email on the distribution list but it needs updating, please provide that that information to Regina as well.
The Church Directory: Please review the current Church Directory. If your listed address or telephone number is outdated, please notify Regina—by phone at (908) 572-7013, email at lamchurch@aol.com, or US Postal service (Lamington Presbyterian Church, 355 Lamington Road, Bedminster, NJ, 07921). Upon your request, Regina will send you the latest Directory electronically via email or through the postal service.
Thank you very much for your support and do not hesitate to contact any member of the Session with questions or comments.
