  • Interim Pastor

    Here is some biographical information about Pastor Wildrick:

    Dr. Jeff Wildrick is a semi-retired pastor who is passionate about helping churches live into their identity in Jesus Christ. He served as pastor of three churches over 35 years of parish ministry, and short-term transitional pastor for congregations on the east and west coasts, and in the midwest. Jeff earned a Doctor of Ministry in Christian Spirituality from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, and was the first moderator of the ECO Presbytery of the Northeast. He lives with his wife, Kathy, on a small lake in northern New Jersey where he enjoys fishing, blogging (www.MilesandSmiles.us), and making travel videos for their YouTube channel. They have three grown children, and their goal is to serve the church while traveling the country in their 37 foot RV.


  • COVID-19 Safety Measures

    We want all to know that we are concerned with protecting our worshippers during this time of COVID-19, and we are implementing the following safety measures.

    1. As we care about the health and welfare of the people attending, we ask that if you are sick you should stay home. If you have underlying health issues, or are in a high risk category, you may want to stay home. If you are nervous about attending and don’t feel safe because of the virus, stay home. Just know that we are trying to take extra precautions to keep you safe. But if you are hesitant, stay home, away from those who may unknowingly be infected.

    2. Arrival: The church will be open about 30 minutes prior to church. You need to wear a mask and social distance at least 6 feet from others (not from your own family) upon entering. The doors (Sanctuary, Pine St. and Education building) will all be propped open so you will not have to touch any of them. Temperatures will be taken with infrared thermometers at the doors. Hand sanitizer will also be given at the doors. You may remove your mask once seated if you are comfortable doing so.

    3. Seating: We will be sitting in every other pew to help maintain distancing. Please sit 6 feet apart from anyone unless you are sitting as a family. The balcony will also be open for seating.

    4. Departure: You need to wear your mask as you exit the church. We ask that you maintain social distancing inside and outside the church.

    5. Offering: The offering will not be done in the normal manner, but your tithes and offerings may be placed in the offering plates, one at the back of the church and one at the front near the door. You may place your offering in the plate when you come in or as you are leaving. Thank you!!

    6. Bathroom use: We kindly ask that you use the restroom before you leave home. However, the bathrooms will be open for emergency use.

    7. Childcare: There will be no childcare or Children’s Church.
