Pig Roast

It's that time of year once again. With the cooler weather, the colored leaves, and the fading sounds of the crickets, comes the time to honor what has become a tradition at New Goshenhoppen. On Sunday, October 14th, following the 10:30 a.m. worship service in the park, it will be time to gather together for the Pig Roast. Family and friends, members or not, all are invited to join in this event. Members of Jordan United Church of Christ in Allentown will be our guests on this Sunday.

 

The roasted pork and beverages are provided at no cost. We only ask that you bring a covered dish or dessert to share and your table setting. Join us as we gather around the table for food and fellowship to celebrate our time together.

Coming Home

The 63rd annual Catechetical Reunion will be observed on Sunday, October 28th, at our worship services. This unique service is a time of reunion, recognition, worship, and fellowship, followed by a luncheon in the Fellowship Hall. At this service we will pay special tribute to those who were confirmed 50 years ago and those younger whose confirmation year ends with a three or an eight, such as 2003, 2008, 2013, 2018, etc. We would be pleased with your presence as we worship together and greet old friends. The "honor class" is the 1968 Confirmation Class. In addition, this is the 291st anniversary of New Goshenhoppen.

 

You will be receiving a letter of invitation with all of the necessary details. You and your family are the luncheon guests of the church, but please respond by Sunday, October 14th so the plans can be finalized. We encourage your presence as your Confirmation Class reunites.

 

This celebration involves many people. If you would like to help by baking a cake, providing cut flowers for decoration, preparing or serving the luncheon or pouring coffee, please see the sign-up sheets in the Social Room or contact the Church Office at 215-679-2041. We pray that God will bless you abundantly as we celebrate the anniversary of your Confirmation.
