Rod’s Grill Night Brought Joy

Fellowship has a high value here at First Reformed Church. It is, however, a fellowship that quickly combines prayer and small talk, dinner table and holy table, fellowship hall and the peace of the sanctuary – even though the latter is, for the time being, just the parlor also known as the Randolph Room. As in countless previous years, Rod’s Grill Night exemplified all this again in its well-tried form on July 18. We want to thank especially Rod Gray and the team from the Invitation & Outreach Committee under the leadership of Janet Waanders for organizing the event. Enjoy the pictures from a summer that went by too fast!
