As many of us continue to remain close to home during this time — or take precautions when we do venture out —  we ask that you continue to keep each other in prayer. 
Please continue to pray for our church members, families, and those close to us who have shared a special part of our lives — 
We ask that you keep Debbie Azzarone (Marion Pomeroy’s daughter), and daughter Elizabeth Azzarone Popiolek, husband Kyle, and children Nicholas and Mia in prayer, as they mourn the passing of Lenny (Debbie’s husband) recently.
Our ongoing prayers continue for Anne Allen & Family (including Anne’s daughters, Liz & family and Sara & Boyd Lowry & Family); Ed Archbold; Rich Balch & family; Laura Bird-Bennett & Family; Okey Chenoweth & Family); Rich Dethmers; Beryl Ferrari; Jean Franklin; Terry Gilligan & Family; Colleen Janssen & Family; Eric Lundquist & Family; Connie Sinkway and the Sinkway/Emery Family; Doris Van Ostenbridge & Family; Rev. Jerry Wright and family; Barbara Zucchino & Family; the Ruth Rankin Leaper Family.
In addition, please keep all those whose lives have been affected and lost by the blazing ravaging wildfires in California.
We pray that God continues to strengthen, comfort, and provide for all who have lost loved ones, their homes or vehicles, special heirlooms in these disasters and that aid is provided in helping to put lives back together.
Are you looking for a quite place to pray, or others to pray for you?
CCGR’s sanctuary continues to be open for prayer and meditation each Wednesday from 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. Please feel free to come by anytime during these hours, in the quietness and peaceful solitude of our church. Feel free to stay as long as you’d like. Know that all precautions have been taken to make our sanctuary a safe place. Please use the entrance/exit doors adjacent to the Memorial Garden.
For those more ‘private’ prayer requests, it gives us comfort knowing our church has a small group ‘CCGR Prayer Chain’. We share prayer needs in confidence on a regular basis those prayers shared with us that you would like to be kept private. If you have a need for prayer that you feel you would like us to share confidentially amongst the small group Prayer Chain, please email requests to Candy Hall at and Donna Nihen at, and of course, Pastor Terry at

2020 CROP WALK — Coming Soon!!
             CROP WALK October 18, 2020              
There will NOT be an organized walk from Van Neste Square in Ridgewood due to Corona virus protocol.  BUT ALL IS NOT LOST!  You can still donate money online to help the hunger cause.  AND… using your social media accounts will help spread the word for other sponsors to donate online, too, especially since it has become an essential way of communicating in these pandemic times.  Also, text or email or call all your friends and encourage them to donate generously online.  NOTICE…if you want, you can still walk and get sponsors too!
Coronavirus-related economic crises could push the number of food insecure Americans to 54 million by year’s end. That’s 17 million more Americans before the pandemic.  In Bergen County, about 61,000 people were considered food insecure before the pandemic.  Add that to job loss and death associated with the coronavirus and the numbers just increase in leaps and bounds!  Hunger is one of the greatest injustices facing our world.  Donations are especially urgent NOW because of job loss.  CROP really needs you to help families, who are unable to help themselves, by being extra generous, and give as much as you can.
How to donate online
Go to  Go to blue search icon and type in Community Church of Glen Rock.  When it pops up, click on Community Church of Glen Rock.
This will bring you to the donations page. Click on the donate button and the next page should have Community Church of Glen Rock already filled in next to the orange WALKER button.   Do nothing there.  Scroll down, choose your donation amount and fill in the blanks.  Select DONATE at the bottom of the page.
If you can’t use the internet, please make a check out to CWS/CROP and drop it off at the Church office (201 444 4625).              THANK YOU SO MUCH, JoAnn Jennings(973-427-9487),                           Gail Sternitzke(201-249-4769)  and Candy Hall
Blessings to you and thank you so much for what you do!
God Bless!Pray

A Message from CCGR’s Office Staff — Josh Gottheimer’s Office Outreach of Support:
For your information only — Barbara Zucchino (from our church office)  suggested I share the following:
 “Katie (201-803-0560), from Josh Gottheimer’s office,  called our church office relaying that any members of our congregation having problems with social security, unemployment, grants, etc., can call her for help.”  (Gotheimer’s main office # is 201-389-1100.)
PLEASE NOTE:  (If you do end up calling, we suggest you do not provide any personal information, i.e., social security number, bank account number, etc.)
