We, the Evangelical Lutheran Church of The Holy Spirit,
are people of God, who are called by the Holy Spirit to pray,
worship, joyfully proclaim Jesus Christ, & compassionately witness & serve others in Christian love.
We are open from 10AM to 1PM Every Thursday & the Last Saturday of Every Month. Pre-Packed Bags, along with Extra Donated Items are available once a month. Please remember to bring some form of verification of residency. Call the Church Office for more information or stop in for assistance. A special

various donations and support to our food pantry!

piece of bread & juice or wine so that we can have Holy Communion together.
Church Council Meetings are held In-Person & on the Conference Call every second Tuesday

Our Food Pantry continues to be open Every Thursday, & the Last Saturday
of the month, from 10AM to 1PM, with continued safety measures in place.
As of August 16, 2021, Bishop Tracie Bartholomew of the New Jersey Synod,
has suggested the following On-Going Safety Protocols for Indoor Gatherings.
“Please follow the CDC Guidance about masks and distancing. Currently, the daily new cases are
such that everyone, vaccinated and unvaccinated, should be masked indoors. Encouraging
vaccination and offering vaccination clinics can be lifesaving. As long as children under 12
remain ineligible for vaccination we need to observe protocols that keep them as safe as possible.
The question for us is always whether our actions are loving toward our neighbor.”
If you, or someone you know, desires to have Holy Communion by phone, please notify
Pastor Leah & plans will be made for support.
Pastor Leah, Vincent, & Heather are available by phone at any time, day or night.
Please do not hesitate to call for any reason.
