  • SUNDAY'S APPOINTED MASS READINGS: Numbers 11:4-6, 10-16, 24-29; Mark 9:38-50; Preaching: The Rector.  This marks our final Sunday in Summer Schedule—and we’ll send out our season of 10:00 a.m. Low Masses with Jazz@Mass!  Our own Willie Martinez and friends will lead our musical praise of Almighty God.  Note too, this will be the last Sunday of our Summer Food Drive.  If you have non-perishable food items you wish to donate to the cause of restocking the pantry at First Presbyterian, Brooklyn Heights, please bring them with you this Sunday.


Send out the summer and prepare for fall

  • THIS FRIDAY NIGHT, September 25, PARISH SUPPER!  Join us for the first in our new concept of totally-comforting Church Suppers, prepared and served to the public from Team Kitchen’s finished renovation!  The cuisine theme of the night will be “Church BBQ!”  Ken Schwartz and Keith Edwards will delight all palates at an unheard of $10 per adult, $5 per child ($25 max/family).  There will be a cash donation bar for beer and wine, and of course, “tips” for the cause of the new dishwasher for the Parish Hall kitchen will be very welcome.  Dinner from 6 to 9 p.m. 
  • CHOIR DAY on Saturday, September 26th  Members of the Parish Choir meet for a day-long (lunch provided) regrouping and rehearsal of fall, Advent, and Christmas anthems and service music. If you are interested in singing in the Choir, please let the office, or Vince Peterson know.
