LITTLE SILVER: EMBURY UMC’S 150th
May 19, 10:00 am to 11:00 am
Little Silver’s Embury United Methodist Church celebrates its 150th anniversary with a special service and reception open to all.
While the formation of the church actually started about a decade earlier, the present structure was dedicated and opened in February of 1869. It is located on land originally given to church founders by the Parker family, the original settlers of Little Silver in 1665.
The church is planning several events throughout the year to mark this milestone. On May 19, there will be a special worship service at 10 am. The service is open to all interested persons and will feature special and original music as well as a re-dedication of the church sanctuary. Members of community organizations are welcome to attend and the church members will pay tribute to local organizations that use the church property or support its community work.
Refreshments and an opportunity to enjoy the beauty and history of this local landmark will follow. For further information, please call the church office (732-741-9708).
