Since Sunday, March 22, Faith Lutheran Church in New Providence has been conducting its 10 a.m. Sunday service online rather than in its sanctuary at 524 South Street. Previously, Faith had two services each Sunday, one at 8:30 a.m. and a second at 11 a.m.
The liturgy of each online service is administered by Faith’s pastor, Rev. Jane McCready. The sermon is given by Rev. McCready or one of Faith’s two pastoral associates, Rev. Markus Vaga and Rev. Robert Kriesat. The organ music of the service is provided by Shea Velloso, Faith’s Minister of Music.
The services have been greeted with gratitude and enthusiasm. In addition to Faith’s members attending; former members who have moved out of New Jersey, persons of the community, Lutheran friends of Faith and missionary partners of Faith have attended the services virtually.
The following are instructions to participate in the service:
