Church Directory To access our new church directory sign up at this website with the email address you gave for the directory listing.


Small Groups The community and fellowship we experience on Sunday mornings is awesome, but many of us seem to long for more!  A number of people have asked about meeting up in our respective neighborhoods (for examaple Bed-stuy, Midwood/Ditmas Park, Sunnyside/Astoria, etc)  for some time to connect and perhaps share a meal.  If you have interest in finding out more, reply to this email and mention the general area of NYC that you call home.


Congregational Meals Ministry Do you love to cook (or  love to pick out a great meal from the deli)? Use those skills to serve your fellow congregants by signing up for the congregational meals ministry, which is a way to organize meals for those who are  are welcoming a new baby, are ill, or are otherwise in need of temporary help with meals.  Email Ellyn Canfield Nealon at ellyn.canfield@gmail.com if you would like to get alerts and have the option to sign up to provide a meal when there is a need. You won’t be expected to make a meal every time, so this is a great way to serve for those who have schedule limitations. If you are in need of meals, please email Pastor CB atCB@greenpointchurch.org.


Consistory Meeting  Sunday, May 3rd after worship


Pride Celebration Planning Group Brooklyn’s Pride Parade and 5K race take place this year on Saturday, June 13th.  A group is forming to plan the celebration and our participation in the parade- float, t-shirt, post-race brunch, etc.  If you are interested in planning the fun, please respond to this email with you interest.  First meeting will be Sunday, May 10th after worship.


HAPPY BIRTHDAY to those celebrating in April :  Daniele Sahr and Colleen Mauro (1), Christina Chestnut (8), and Jane Pool (18).  Have a birthday in April not listed here?  Let us know!


If you are participating in or involved in an event you think other people in the church would want to know about (show, film festival, play, sporting competition, etc.) please email the details topastor@greenpointchurch.org for inclusion in the newsletter.


See you Sunday at Greenpoint Church!
