Weekly Update – Sept 20 – 25

Dear Friends,

What a diligent group of young volunteers from Rutgers University, guided by Pastor Hartmut, Gary & Lauren Bernhofer, and Rod Gray, came out Saturday afternoon to work around our church. Gravestones received mulch around them to keep down the grass, various places received a coat of paint, the curtain sheers were hung throughout the church house, the sanctuary was restored to order in preparation for RALLY DAY! Phew! I’m getting tired just writing it all down. Thank you! Thank you all for time and efforts.

And what a fun and spirited RALLY DAY we had. There was a flea, a lion, a magician, a king and a ring master with the flea. Such small sparse props were used still the message of joyful hope made room in our hearts because we allowed it to have some space there. Let’s carry that hope with us through all that we are doing as a church.

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.
