Naming Our New Church
As our congregations continue to move forward toward merger, we need to begin to think about a name for our new ministry together. We are asking all of you to think about a name for what will be our new church. During the months of May & June suggestions may be submitted to Maria Studer or Joan Tischner, the Clerks of our Sessions. We look forward to your ideas. The final decision on the new name will be made by the Joint Sessions.
Please write down your name suggestion and drop it in the suggestion box on the Narthex table at Levittown & Massapequa.
