After years of public ministry, Armin and Nancy Sommer will be retiring to their family home in Cooperstown, NY. On Sunday, August 29th we will be hosting a morning of church-wide celebration services and receptions to honor and commemorate Armin and Nancy Sommer and their time of ministry among us. In order to allow for our entire congregation to say good-bye and thank you to them, these identical celebration services and receptions will take place at both campuses at the following times:
9:00 AM Netcong
11:15 AM Randolph
1:00 PM Netcong
Please mark your calendars and plan to be a part of one of these important
good-bye services on Sunday, August 29th, you won’t want to miss out!


During these celebration services, the elders will be presenting a gift to honor Armin and Nancy.

Memory Book

A very important and special part of our gift to Armin and Nancy will be a memory book that his daughter Rachel is making. The memory book will be filled with pictures and handwritten letters of thanksgiving from all of us. Help us to make this gift as special as Armin and Nancy’s ministry was to us and to our families over the years. You can share photos and videos of Armin, Nancy, the Sommer Family, you with the Sommer family, or your family with a member of the Sommer Family.  We would also love for you to take photos of handwritten notes to any member of the Sommer Family. You can upload all of this to our Google Photo Album by clicking on the button that says "Upload" below. Once you get to the Google Photo Album click "Add Photo" button on the top right to begin adding your memories of Armin.
