Help Light Up the Sanctuary!

The latest blog entry from New Brunswick City Market on www.newbrunswick.com on 1/30/13.

The First Reformed Church of New Brunswick, N.J. is seeking your help to "Light Up Their Sanctuary".  Over the past few years the bulbs currently used in the large candelabras have been slowly burning out. Although there is some natural light during the morning hours, it's becoming more difficult for the parishioners to enjoy their services and take in the beauty of their sanctuary as the lights glow dim.

The church is seeking energy efficient indoor lighting replacement bulbs to help keep the lights on in the sanctuary longer than those currently being used.  This has been a very trying task as the company which made these replacement bulbs recently went out of business. This now makes it more difficult for the church to find the replacement bulbs that will work in the large, early 20th century, candelabra fixtures which hang from the ceiling of the First Reformed Church Sanctuary. Pastor Hartmut Kramer-Mills has indicated that they have located one or two retailers that still have the desired bulbs in limited stock, but time is of the essence.

First Reformed Church of New Brunswick is seeking help from the community and encourages everyone to join the "Help Light Up the Sanctuary" campaign by making a monetary donation to the Church for the purchase of these now specialized bulbs.
