News and Events - April-May 2015

Memorial Garden Service Project

More than 25 people stayed after the church picnic on Sunday, May 31, to help beautify the Memorial Garden in loving memory of all the saints who have gone before. Our Confirmation Class students developed the idea as a service project for the church. Many thanks to all who contributed perennials and to all who stayed to weed and plant in the hot sun. God waited until after we were finished working to open the heavens with a much needed rain shower. Extra special thanks to visiting master gardener Rich Lynch for providing so many plants and overseeing our work.


Memorial Day Parade 2015

General Bloomfield stepped right out from the pages of New Jersey history to march with the Church on the Green delegation in this yearís Memorial Day Parade!


Easter Egg Hunt 2015

After the 10:45AM service, the children enjoyed searching for Easter Eggs in Pastor Ruthís back yard!


Easter Sunrise Service

At the Easter Sunrise Service, we celebrated the new future God provided for humanity in the resurrection of Jesus Christ. On strips of paper provided, we wrote our names, a word to describe Jesus, and the special touch we personally hope to add to Godís handiwork. We wove our strips of paper together to create a visual representation of our hope in the risen Lord. Then each person chose a butterfly, representing resurrection, and added it to the Easter cross, showing that we belong to Christ.


The First Annual Live Nativity brings Bethlehem to Bloomfield

This year we were excited to put on our first Live Nativity. We had live animals, the Bloomfield Chorale, and volunteers from both the Church on the Green and the Iglesia Cristiana Evangelio Completo who braved the bitter cold evening to share the story of Jesus' birth with the town of Bloomfield. Thank you to all of the volunteers who helped make this a must-see event, and to Van Tassel Funeral Home for their generous financial support of this event.

Christmas Festival 2014

The Christmas Festival was held on December 6, 2014. We had a great time and it was a big success! We had vendors in the Parish House and Education building and are proud to report that the fundraiser brought in $2,050.99. Thank you to everyone who came out to support the event.

Christmas Pageant 2014

This year's Christmas Pageant was wonderful. The children put on a great show as usual. The story, written by Pastor Ruth Boling, was very apt for the Christmas season as we should always remember the blessing of serving others. We hope you all enjoyed it and look forward to next year's show.


The First Annual Tricky Tray Event is a Success!

What a night! Great prizes, an enthusiastic audience, a fantastic emcee, and the perfect venue all contributed to making for a highly successful fundraiser. We are pleased to report that we raised $5,052.61 from the Tricky Tray event, all of the which will benefit the historic sanctuary restoration project.

Spaghetti Dinner 2014

Chef Jose Aponte delivered the goods at the Church on the Green Spaghetti Dinner on Saturday, Sept. 27, which was well attended by church and community members alike. Special thanks to the Brookdale ShopRite for their generous donations, the Clara Maas Hospital "Stop Hunger" volunteers who served and cleared the tables, the hardworking members of BOCOG Fundraising Team, and especially Rachel Kollar who coordinated this event. All proceeds will help restore our historic sanctuary building."
