Combined Collegiate Worship Service

The Collegiate Worship Service took place at the Van Wickle House on Aug 24th. More than 100 people from Highland Park, First and Second Reformed Churches – and even Aurea, our church secretary from Suydam Street Church, came with her three grandchildren. Pastor Doug Shepler preached, and Seth Kaper-Dale and Kyle Delhagen (student at NBTS) also led the liturgy. The children sang some of the Vacation Bible School songs and our Viktoriya along with Anna from the Highland Park Church provided incredible music. Of course, the worship service was followed by several tables groaning with food. A BIG THANK YOU goes to Lauren, Gary, and Josh Bernhofer for bringing First Reformed Church’s grill over and grilling for several hours. For the first time in many years people enjoyed a great meal, and this showed by how long people stayed afterwards.

About Susan Kramer-Mills

Susan Kramer-Mills' journey as a pastor has led her to a variety of places. Before attending McCormick Theological Seminary in Chicago she was a Volunteer-in-Mission for two years West Berlin, Germany. After returning to the United States and graduating from seminary, she returned with her husband Hartmut to Germany. From 1990 to 1992 she was campus chaplain and registrar at Naumburg Seminary in former East Germany. With the closing of the seminary she assumed the pastorate for the yoked congregations of Stoessen, Goerschen and Rathewitz in Saxony-Anhalt, Germany. At the same time she taught Religious Instruction at two public elementary schools until 1998. During this time she was assigned six additional congregations to the original three. In 1998, she received a call as Associate Pastor to Trinity Presbyterian Church in East Brunswick, New Jersey. She served in that position until 2000, when she and her husband accepted a call as co-pastors to First Reformed Church in New Brunswick, New Jersey. Since April 1, 2004, Rev. Kramer-Mills has also been working part-time as Classis Minister to the Classis of New Brunswick.
