Bemoaning the decline of our brand of Christianity has hardly ever convinced newcomers to join our ranks. How different is this when Christians from several Reformed Churches of our area come together to share a short devotion, a not-so-short meal and a final introduction to each others’ ministries with one another! All of this happens every year during the Collegiate Picnic of the Reformed Churches in our part of the Raritan Valley.
This year it was held on August 23 and for the second time in Donaldson Park in Highland Park.
Over the years, many friendships have developed, and several of us look forward to seeing old acquaintances from the other churches on this occasion. And for the newer members in our midst it is always a good opportunity to see that we are more than we appear to be on an average Sunday morning.
I would like to thank the Worship Committee, and especially Sherri and Ken Novack, Heather Epstein, and Ben Berman for their contributions to the event.
