St. Elizabeth’s welcomes visitors, inquirers and newcomers to the parish community. The clergy, lay staff, vestry, Sunday ushers and Greeters, and just about anyone at Coffee Hour will be glad to tell you more about the congregation and answer any questions you may have.
If you would like to become a member of the congregation, we would like to learn more about you and your family. Our tradition is to contact new members during the course of the year and to speak with them over the phone or in person and then to publish their brief biographies in The Tower newsletter. If you have not been contacted for a biography (and have grown roots here!), please contact the Church Office at 201-444-2299 or email@example.com. We will be delighted to remedy the situation! Also, new parishioners, please send in a photograph that we can display in the Parish Hall. If you do not have a photograph to submit, we will happily arrange to take your photograph after a 10 a.m. service.
St. Elizabeth's Traditions
Each fall, newcomers to our parish within the last year or those who have children in Second Grade or younger are invited for brunch at the Rectory. We gather while Church School is in session and continue after Church School is dismissed.
Hospitality Hosts Are Needed for Upcoming Sundays
All you need to do is brew a pot of coffee, boil water for tea, buy breakfast goods, set up before church, and clean up afterwards. It’s a wonderful way to get involved in the fellowship of St Elizabeth’s. If you would like to volunteer, please sign up in the Parish Hall and take a copy of the instructions that are next to the sign-up sheet, or contact Ann Dowling in the Church Office (201-444-2299 or firstname.lastname@example.org) to let her know which Sunday you are available.
“Let mutual love continue. Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers for by doing that some have entertained angels without knowing it.”
