Opportunities with Partner Congregations – June 2019

Museum of the Bible – Saturday, June 29

Witherspoon Street Presbyterian Church would like to invite members of Nassau to join us on a trip to the Museum of the Bible in Washington DC on Saturday, June 29. The cost per person to cover the trip (bus and museum tickets included) is $90 per person.

We will leave at 7:00 am from Princeton in the parking lot for the Billie Johnson Mountain Lakes Nature Preserve off of Mountain Avenue between Route 206 and Bayard Lane, returning to the same location at 9:00 pm.

The Museum includes artifacts, short films, panoramas, technology-enhanced exhibits, and a biblically themed restaurant (foodies should definitely check it out!). It tells the story of how the Bible came to us, illustrates the culture, and of special interest is a current exhibit called “The Slave Bible: Let the Story Be Told.”

Please make your reservation for this trip ASAP as seats are filling up. To reserve your spot, contact Audi Peal (908-938-9573, apeal@comcast.net). Checks should be made payable to “Witherspoon Street Presbyterian Church” with “Museum of the Bible” on the memo line, and mailed on or before Wednesday, June 19, to:
