Summer is a time when church and cemetery tours happen. This year, we are having an extraordinary number of requests.
During the month of June, I gave seven such tours. Among the participants were guests from the RCA Archives, members of the New Brunswick court system, tourists, and the youth of two scout troops.
The children planted flags at the graves of veterans of the Revolution. They also helped serve at the House of Manna. Together, we climbed the steeple and marveled at the clock.
These tours provide great moments, especially for children. They connect them with the surrounding community, the historical heritage of our town and congregation, and with the sacrifices of the American Revolution.
Should you, dear reader, be interested on going on a tour or desire to set one up for another group, please call our church office.
