Chatham Church to Host Forum on Justice For All

The Outreach Department of Stanley Congregational Church, United Church of Christ, will hold a “Just Neighbors” forum on Sunday, March 11, 2012 beginning at 11:30AM.  The topic is Justice For All.  This session will highlight the disparities in wealth and income in the United States. Playing the roles of different people at various economic levels, participants will consider the effects of government policy, corporate strategy, and globalization on people in different segments of society.  The forum will be moderated by Senior Minister Rev. Shawn Garvey and is free and open to the public.  The church is located at 94 Fairmount Avenue, Chatham.

The forum is part of an educational toolkit entitled Just Neighbors which is published by Family Promise (formerly the National Interfaith Hospitality Network).  The toolkit includes material for nine interactive sessions designed to enable participants to walk in the shoes of those living at the poverty level. Through videos, interactive exercises, scripture and discussion, participants learn about the struggles of neighbors in need and discover ways to help.

The public is also invited to attend any Sunday Worship Service or church program. The worship service begins at 10:00AM each Sunday.  Stanley Congregational Church is an "open and affirming" church. The congregation offers a warm welcome to persons of every race, marital circumstance, sexual orientation, and theological tradition.  The Sanctuary is handicap accessible.  Church School classes are available during the school year for children three years old through eighth grade. Childcare is available for infants and toddlers.  Young people in ninth, tenth, eleventh and twelfth grade are encouraged to serve as ushers in worship, assistants in the classroom, and assistants in childcare. Children attend worship with their families and then leave for classes after the extending the peace of Christ in the service.  A coffee hour follows the worship service. For more information go to or call the office at (973) 635 - 7723. pre

April 9, 2018

Dear Editor,


With spring holding off threats of snow, recent memories of the Nor’Easter that paralyzed the region are still engraved in my mind. In the height of the last big storm a 65 foot tall, 2½ foot wide white pine gave way to the heavy snow and landed on the house pulling our power line down, 1700 other Chathamites had lost power and trees were down ...
