Children and Youth
Our Youth Group meets on the first Sunday of the month after the morning worship service.
The Newtown Puppets, our children's puppet theater ministry, perform periodically during the Sunday worship service throughout the year. Led by Pastor Anette, the Newtown Puppets create their own handmade puppets and perform plays written by the pastor.
We have a Presbyterian Women's Fellowship (which meets on the first Saturday of the month) and a Men's Fellowship (monthly meeting dates vary).
On our monthly Movie Nights, we gather at our church to watch a movie together. We also organize a monthly Church Night Out where we eat at one of the many restaurants in our neighborhood.
Singing is an important part of our worship. Our Chancel Choir, directed by Jonathan P. Breit, rehearses on Sundays from 9:30 to 10:30 AM and from 12:00 to 1:00 PM in the sanctuary. Our Children's and Youth Choirs also practice on Sundays after the worship service.
Throughout the year, we have special church trips and other events. For example, every year, we attend a Sight & Sound show in Lancaster, Pennsylvania; go to a spring spiritual retreat in the area; and go apple picking upstate in the fall. We also love to eat! We hold potluck lunches and other meals throughout the year, including Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and our annual International Night celebration.
