1. New Reopening Guidance with an Uptick in COVID-19 Cases – All Clergy, Trustee ChairpersonsOn Monday, Governor Murphy tightened the restrictions on indoor gatherings to 25 people because of the recent spikes in COVID-19 cases in New Jersey.

Before opening church buildings, all congregations in GNJ are to continue to follow the guidelines established by their governors and create a plan according to GNJ guidelines that can be found below. New Jersey

3. Shared Ministry Apportionment Holiday – AllJuly ended the four months of shared ministry holiday for our churches. We have been blessed by a number of congregations that have indicated that they will be paying the full 12 months or some indicated they will give 10 months of shared ministry which is helping all of us through the COVID-19 pandemic. If congregations are able to pay 100% of your shared ministry, your giving will help us to repay the money we will borrow to meet the mission and ministry of GNJ. For information on shared ministry.
