Weekly Update – June 28 – July 3

Dear Friends,

Incredible work was done this past Saturday at the Property Committee’s Work DAY! The following was accomplished: the tiling of the Randolph Room back entryway, stripping of the floor in Fellowship Hall, the curtains taken down in various places for cleaning, and pruning around the church. Thanks to all who worked: Paul & Caryn, Lauren & Gary, Josh, Elian, Joan, and Pastor Hartmut. You did a wonderful job!!! Thank you!!

As you know, First Reformed Church is a spiritual community, which believes in serving the wider New Brunswick community by involving itself in interfaith activism. Our next concert is an outgrowth of that mission; it is truly an interfaith, spiritual celebration that aims to create a forum in which we can share the music of our different ethnic and religious backgrounds.

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.
