Report from the Town Clock Community Development Corporation, Inc.

As we reported in the September newsletter, the Building Vision Group had filed for 501(c)3 status with the state of New Jersey and is now officially able to use the above name. In the past month, we have met with representatives from Women Aware, attended a training event through the Corporation for Supportive Housing, and finalized a request for proposal, which was sent out to the following architects: Kitchen Associates, Kurt Ludwig, and Design Ideas Group. The return date for these designs is Oct 15, 2010.

The Board members (Elizabeth Hance, Ellen Hamilton, Joan Fekete, Stef Beemsterboer, Linda Lachesnez, and Pastor Susan) will review the designs. At some point we plan to present designs to the congregation, but we need to see how they develop.

In the meantime, we would like to have another Congregational Meeting in order to bring our membership up to date with what we have learned through many meetings and discussions. We know that the calendar is full so we propose a Congregational Meeting on Oct 31st after worship. We hope that many of you will be able to attend.

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.
