Yard Sale - Posted On: Thursday, September 18, 2014

              Old Whalers' Yard Sale   -    Saturday September 20 - 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.

            On Saturday, September 20, 2014  we are planning to hold the fourth annual Old Whaler’s Church Yard Sale to benefit church programming and the historic building’s upkeep.  We are very grateful that Patricia Behrens and Gillian Kluge have volunteered to coordinate this year’s event.   

            In order for this event to run smoothly and continue to be successful , we need many volunteers.   Help is needed in the following areas:   

     Assistance the week before the sale with unpacking, organizing, pricing and setting up tables. We will begin setting up on Wednesday, September 17. Watch the bulletin and “This Week at Old Whalers” email for more details. 

 Volunteers to help with the  Bake Sale which is held the morning of the sale and bakers to prepare goodies and jams. Contact Louise Gazda. 

 Volunteers to work the day of the sale helping customers, cashing out, wrapping people’s purchases and helping to carry big items to their cars

 Help Saturday afternoon with clean up.

        We would appreciate it if you would start putting aside items that you would like to donate. Please note that we will not be able to accept TV’s or computer equipment over 3 years old, VHS tapes, paperback books, children’s used toys, baby car seats, cribs, high chairs, etc., mattresses, Venetian blinds & large upholstered furniture such as couches, chairs, and recliners.  Since we do not have any storage area at the church, we are asking everyone to keep the items at their homes until Wednesday, September 17. For more information or to find out how you can help, please speak to either Gillian or Patricia.

               This is a major fund raising event for the church.  Last year we made over $8,000 and this year we hope to exceed that amount!  With YOUR help, we will do it!


Bible Study - Posted On: Thursday, September 18, 2014

                   Monday Night Bible Study, 6:30pm

                  "The Jesus I Never Knew"

        This fall we invite you to join us on a journey that will challenge and change you. A journey that will expand - and very likely - redefine your understanding of the person, teachings, and life of Jesus Christ. One that will lead you beyond familiar images of Christ to discover Jesus as you have never known him: radical, compelling, compassionate, bold, incisive, and ultimately satisfying. Using Philip Yancey’s best selling book, The Jesus I Never Knew, we will peel away popular stereotypes to present a brilliant and fascinating portrait of Christ.  Copies of the book are aavailable in the church office.  All are welcome!

We will gather at 11:45 a.m. in the narthex and begin with a brief, informal talk about the building, sanctuary, and our recently restored trompe l'oeil mural - similar to the talk we offer to scheduled tour group which visit Sag Harbor. Following that, there will be a talk and demonstration on our historic Erben organ. You will have the opportunity to look inside the organ case to see the pipes and the bellows, including the manual pumping mechanism which allows us to use the organ without electricity.

   In an effort to better care for our members and friends, please notify the church office if you (or a family member) are hospitalized. The hospitals no longer contact the churches and the only way we can be of help to you is if we are notified.



Nursery - Posted On: Thursday, August 28, 2014


             At one time, Old Whalers’ provided nursery care on Sunday mornings during the worship service. For many years, the nursery was staffed by volunteers and then by paid employees. This provided an opportunity for parents of infants and very young children to worship while their children were well cared for. Three years ago, due to financial challenges, the Session had to eliminate the paid nursery worker position. We made several attempts to staff the nursery with adult volunteers but had very limited success. In an effort to be a welcoming church for all ages, the Session wishes to explore the possibility of providing nursery care again on Sunday mornings. If any of our members would like to volunteer for a week or two each month, please speak to Rev. Mark Phillips. Two people are needed - one of whom is a responsible adult.

Choir - Posted On: Thursday, September 18, 2014

   Choir & Bell Choir Rehearsals Resume

Have you ever given any thought to singing in the choir or ringing in our bell choir? Now would be the perfect time to give one or both groups a try! Both choirs will begin working on special holiday music as well as preparing selections for upcoming worship services. Those interested in singing in the choir are asked to speak to Director of Music, Dominick Abbate and those interested in ringing in the bell choir should see Bell Choir Director David Cummings. We have a core group of dedicated singers and ringers (and two really great directors), but we can also additional participants. Still not sure? Why not come to a rehearsal and give us a try. The choir rehearses at 5:00 on Wednesday afternoon and the bell choir at 6:00.  Will we see YOU this week?
