THE ICHABOD CRANE PRIMARY SCHOOL, which William Allen attends, is collecting can tabs for The Ronald McDonald House. Can tabs will be collected and used to pay bills for the houses. Please put any can tabs you have in a plastic bag and place them in the box outside the sanctuary. The Allens will then bring them to Will’s school for collection. Thank you!

OCTOBER 31ST MARKS THE 500TH ANNIVERSARY of Martin Luther’s nailing of his 95 Theses on the door of the All Saints’ Church in Wittenberg.  Traditionally it is recognized as the beginning of the Reformation.  In honor of this anniversary, two events are being planned at our church.  First, Dr. Allan Janssen (Affiliate Professor of Theology at New Brunswick Seminary) will lead a discussion on the Reformation on October 24th at 7:00 PM in Chilton Hall of the Christian Education Building.  Secondly, on Sunday, October 29th (Reformation Sunday), beginning at 5:00 PM in Chilton Hall of the Christian Education Building there will be a Covered Dish Dinner followed by a viewing of the 2003 movie on Martin Luther entitled ‘Luther’.  Sign up for the Covered Dish dinner and movie can be found on the glass cabinet of the Sanctuary lobby or by contacting the church office (grcsecretary11@verizon.net, 477-6030).
