United Presbyterian Church of West Orange


    We are now feeding as many families each day the Food Pantry is open as we were in

    an entire month before the pandemic

            (AND we have gone from 5 days a month to 8 or 9).

     We do not imagine this food need going away anytime soon.

     So our St. Cloud Neighborhood Food Drive is more important than ever.  But, doing it

     the way we have in the past (with lots of volunteers, people dropping off food, having

     to transport from UPC to Holy Trinity) just won’t work.

      So … We have moved to a Virtual Food Drive.  We are asking you to donate money

      instead of groceries.  You can do this by writing a check to UPC and putting

     "food drive" in the memo, or by contributing to the Food Ministry line on

      Give+ (see below)  All proceeds from the Food Ministry line in June will be considered

      Food Drive donations. Thank you for your support.

This Sunday, July 5th  - 

“Yoked” (Matthew 11:16-19, 25-30)


In this week’s reading from the gospel of Matthew, Jesus says, “My yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” Since yokes are unfamiliar to most of us, you may want to make a yoke and use it to complete some chores. For example, use a pole and two small buckets to make a yoke to carry water to the bird bath. Or you could make a harness with a rope and pull a child in a wagon. What makes the work hard or light? What makes the work a burden or a joy? How does using a yoke help you work with others?
