Welcome City Classis!

Dear Sisters and Brothers,

Most of you already know that at the 2018 General Synod, it was voted on by the delegates to transfer the City Classis from the Synod of the Far West to the Synod of the Mid-Atlantics by September 30, 2018.  I am writing to inform all of you that the transfer is complete and as of October 1, 2018, the Synod of the Mid-Atlantics has welcomed the City Classis with open arms and an excited spirit!

City Classis is well-known for their mission to cultivate & nurture an environment where spiritual renewal, innovative ministry and leadership development has resulted in healthy and reproducing urban churches.  As a Synod, we are excited to learn from their successes and failures as well as to support them in the continued ministry that are doing.

Please join us in welcoming the City Classis to the Synod of the Mid-Atlantics!

Sola Deo Gloria 

Rev. Stephen Eckert, Stated Clerk, Synod of the Mid-Atlantics

Middlebush Reformed Church Presents "Invisible Wounds: There Is More to Your Story"

Middlebush Reformed Church is pleased to present Invisible Wounds: There Is More to Your Story!  This concert with an emphasis on Suicide Awareness and Prevention will be held at the auditorium of Franklin High School (FHS) in Somerset, New Jersey on Sunday, October 21, at 6:00 pm.  The concert itself has free admission, and free-will donations will be received to support Church-Based Mental Health Services, an arm of New Brunswick Classis’ CDC, Church Improving Communities.  The concert will feature 150Central, a Christian band from Franklin Township (who also played for MRC’s production of Godspell a few years back) and students of the FHS Vocal Music Department, including cast of the upcoming FHS production of RENT.  This inspiring evening will provide a safe haven of encouragement, care and companionship for those affected by suicide and for those who may be contemplating it.  Youth groups are especially encouraged to attend and listen to their peers speak of the hope and help that is available when times seem tough and overwhelming.  

MRC extends special thanks to 150Central and to the Franklin Township Board of Education for the help they are giving in support of this event.  Come, share in the power of this concert, and please, come ready to help support this worthwhile ministry of the Church-Based Mental Health Services!  If you have questions or need more information, please contact Middlebush Reformed (732-873-2776, mrcoffice@middlebushreformedchurch.com) or the church’s pastor, George Montanari (mrcpastor@middlebushreformedchurch.com).
