Essence Group

Essence Group

The "small group" experience continues to be an integral part of a spiritual journey for members of this congregation. Gathering to share God's word through selected Bible passages -- members celebrate a relational approach to the Scriptures and one another.

Essence groups provide an environment for sharing and, by honoring a covenant of confidentiality, lend support and comfort to members who struggle with personal issues. Prayer is an important element of every gathering.

There are currently two Essence groups that meet on a weekly or bi-monthly basis:

Carolyn Santonicola and Viki Shima: Thursdays - (2nd & 4th of the month) - 1:15 PM in the Lounge

Craig Carroll and Mary Kuttner: Thursdays (1st & 3rd of the month) - 8:00 PM in the Lounge

All who participate in Essence are thankful to the Presbyterian Church at Tenafly for providing this opportunity to share God's grace in our lives. We invite you to make Essence a part of your own faith journey.


Prayer Chain

Prayer chain allows our congregants to know that, should they have a need arise during the week, the prayer chain members will be there to pray, encourage and support them and, as Rev. Lindner put it, to know that even "when someone cannot say their prayers, we will say them for that person." To know that you are held in prayer during difficult times is very comforting indeed to which many of us, with personal knowledge, will attest.
