Capital Campaign

As of May 13, we have received 62 pledge cards for a total of $61,230 towards our goal of $165,000.00 for projects that will be completed by the end of July 2024. To-date we have placed a new roof on the parsonage and replaced the carpet in the vestibules and stair cases of the Sanctuary. (Check out the new dark red carpet – it looks glorious!)
 

At this point, we have received in gifts that includes memorial gifts a total of $45,811.00. We were able to install the new roof and carpet the church without taking any further funds from invested funds.
 

We mailed out over 500 Capital Campaign Pledge Cards and return has seemed to “stall!” Please take a moment today to look at the materials and plan your participation in this important endeavor of maintaining our church facilities. If you have misplaced your Pledge Card, please call the church office and a new one will be mailed to you.

Labor Day Weekend Worship

September 1st
 

The Reformation Sister Clergy (Palm, New Goshenhoppen, St. John’s Lutheran, Frieden’s, Pennsburg, St. Mark’s Luther-an, and St. Paul’s Lutheran) will come together on Sunday, September 1 at 10:30 a.m. in the New Goshenhoppen Park. If the weather is “ugly” we will be in the Sanctuary for a community service that includes Holy Communion. Following worship, there will be a “Potluck” Lunch, and the Bouncy House, a giant slide, Cornhole, and more will be out for an afternoon of family fun! The Rev’d Steve Myren (Pennsburg Church) will be the guest preacher.


There will be a 9:00 a.m. service for our “online” folks in the New Goshenhoppen Sanctuary. The Rev’d Nick Pence will be the guest preacher. We will make that service available to all of the Reformation Sister congregations to post on their websites for the day.

The Reformation Sister Clergy have started a “breakfast” group that meets at our parsonage once a month. Pastor Dave often prepares the breakfast entre while others bring rolls, fruit, etc. This group of clergy has found fellowship and encouragement being together. Out of this has come several opportunities for us to worship and share in mission together. This fall we will be packing meals for an overseas mission project, the Thanksgiving Feast returns, mid-week Lent, and we keep thinking outside of the box to bring our congregations together in faith and fellowship.

300th Anniversary

On October 21, 2027, New Goshenhoppen Reformed Church will be celebrating its 300th anniversary. Since this will be a special event in the history of our church, the Historical Committee is looking to form a 300th celebration committee.

 

Anyone who is interested in sharing their ideas or help in planning the event are invited to participate. Please contact the Church Office to submit your name or suggestions.
