‘Patriot Church’ Celebrates Long History of Service to the Community

first_imgBy John BurtonMIDDLETOWN – Imagine what life was like 325 years ago in the area that is now Middletown.It’s a wilderness with a few small pockets of settlers, looking to carve out a life in the New Word. In that frontier setting there is a communal center to the area, the church. It’s a church that still exists today, continuing its mission to offer spiritual and community support.Elaine Lent, church moderator and historian, and Board of Trustees Chairman Peter Ahern, stand in front of the historic Old First Church, Middletown’s oldest church, as they prepare for the Baptist church’s 325th anniversary on Oct. 6.Old First Church, 69 Kings Highway, is celebrating its 325th anniversary Sunday, Oct. 6, with programs, including costumed tours of the historic site, a morning worship service with the church’s pastor, the Rev. Joyce A. Phipps, and a 7 p.m. candlelit community concert of music by early American composers. The musical program will be performed by Glenn May from the Mon­mouth County Historical Association, who will be wearing 18th-century dress and playing the church’s 700-pipe Fritszche organ.The program also will offer some historical notes about the lives of early county residents.A point of pride for the church is its long history of patriotic fervor shown by its members. That is especially true of some of its earliest congregants, including clergy members, who were quick to support the call of liberty and revolution in the 18th century, said Elaine Lent, the church’s moderator – the lay leader – who also serves as the church historian.Middletown’s Old First Church’s cemetery, decorated in American flags for its 325thanniversary, contains the remains of many church members going back to its earliest years.In honor of the church’s participation in the nation’s history, members have placed 400 small American flags around the church buildings and along the outline of its 150-plot cemetery, which contains the graves of some of its original members.Founded in 1688, it was the first church and meeting house in the Middletown area, though personal diaries and records show worshippers had met in each other’s homes as early as 1668, according to Lent.The founders were early settlers arriving here from Massachusetts and what is now the Gravesend section of Brooklyn, N.Y. They landed in the area of what is now Atlantic Highlands and made their way inland.Old First Church, on Kings Highway in Middletown, is decorated with 400 American flags in preparation of the church’s 325th anniversary on Oct. 6.Like many of those who traveled to the Colonies, the earliest church members were seeking freedom from the religious intolerance they found elsewhere. The Baptist sect was relatively new at that time. “So new that there was a number of schisms,” within, Lent said. Being new and often misunderstood, the church was dismissed or derided by other denominations. One of the church’s early clergy members, Obadiah Holmes, was horsewhipped in Boston for his beliefs, Lent said.Even though it is a Baptist denomination, the church attracted those of other faiths, including Episcopal­ian and Quakers.“It was what I would say were a bunch of free thinkers,” who saw the church’s mission as one dedicated to freedom of conscious, soul liberty and respect for diversity, beliefs that still hold true today, Lent said.By the time of Revolu­tionary War, the church had become known as the “Patriot Church” under its pastor, Abel Morgan, who served there until his death in 1785. Morgan was “a very charismatic, intelligent minster,” known for his debating skills, having traveled as far away as Oyster Bay, Long Island, and Staten Island, N.Y., to preach.“He took this very divided congregation and united it,” Lent said.Morgan’s writings show he was an early supporter of the Colonists, looking to break away from England, Lent said.There was certainly a division between the British and the Anglican Church and the relatively upstart Baptist denomination with Anglicans and their Tory supporters having little regard for other faiths, she said.Joseph Murray, a church member, who owned a Middletown farm, was killed fighting the British in 1780, and is buried in the church’s graveyard.Pictured is a drawing of Abel Morgan, Old First Church’s pastor at the time of the American Revolution, with a pair of his eyeglasses and pocket Bible.Around the time of the Battle of Monmouth in Freehold in June 1778, British troops took control of the church, using it either as a field hospital or to house soldiers, according to Lent, who said the information on that is somewhat vague.Morgan was unable to preach there, his services relegated to his farm’s barn, located about a mile away.Following that period “the church just grew like mad,” with its congregation swelling to its high point of about 500 members in the late 1880s, Lent said.Since then, the church has seen some of its members leave and start other Baptist churches in the area, including in Matawan, Holm­del and Atlantic Highlands. About 14 area churches were formed directly from Old First Church, Lent said.The church that sits at the Kings Highway location is the congregation’s third. The first burned down in 1734 and was rebuilt immediately. The existing structure was built in 1832 by members who volunteer their time, funds, lumber and equipment for the task.Over the years there have been expansions and renovations, including moving the former Middletown Women’s Christian Temper­ance Union Hall to the property in 1921, where it is still used as a social hall.After all these years, Old First Church continues to be a center of community involvement and a source of spiritual guidance for its congregants, Lent said.Pictured is a tree showing the numerous area churches that spun off of Old First Church, Middletown’s oldest church.In the aftermath of Super Storm Sandy last October, Old First Church, like a great many houses of worship, remained open and available, allowing the public to come and use the gas-operated stoves to cook meals, and its hot water to wash clothes and themselves when so many were without power for so long.“Churches are some of the few places to handle things like that, because of their size,” making them oftentimes ideal community focal points, Lent said.This summer the church hosted 39 youth and disaster assistance workers from Upstate New York who spent time in Monmouth County working to restore homes for families still recovering from Sandy’s effects.That’s a role the church has always played and continues to take pride in, Lent noted.“As a community church it is dedicated to community efforts,” and continues to host organizations, conduct its own programs and work with the efforts of other community groups.Old First Church now has a diverse membership of about 40 to 50 families. “We have people from all over Monmouth County,” who attend services and participate in programs, said Peter Ahern, chairman of the board of trustees.But some things don’t change with time.“Community was always the heart of this church,” Lent said. “It still is.”last_img read more

Harvick still racing around

first_imgBeing the Daytona 500 winner comes with a whirlwind media tour. For Kevin Harvick, that has meant appearances on “The Late Show with David Letterman,” “Live with Regis and Kelly,” California Speedway Day in L.A. at Hollywood and Highland, “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” and radio spots with ESPN’s Dan Patrick in Bristol, Conn., Steve Mason and John Ireland on KSPN 710-AM, and Rick Dees on KMVN 93.9-FM in Los Angeles. “They’ve been very organized with everything, making things go really smoothly,” Harvick said. “We’ve been able to rest at night and have somewhere nice to sleep, too. It’s really not been much worse than being at home.” He arrived Wednesday in LosAngeles, but won’t see California Speedway, the site of this weekend’s NASCAR races, until this afternoon. When he gets there, things won’t settle down. Harvick will run in all three races at California Speedway this weekend. He will be in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series race Friday night, the Busch Series race Saturday and the Nextel Cup Series race Sunday. Once he gets on the race track, it might be his first chance for a little peace and quiet – so to speak – since winning the Daytona 500. “Still going to race all three races,” said Harvick, driver of the No. 29 Chevrolet Monte Carlo for Richard Childress Racing in the Cup Series. “We planned on doing that from the beginning. Just trying to get the truck program started off on the right foot. Be in the Busch car this week, too. When you’re in the car at the track, you can kind of get away from the rest of it.” In addition to winning the Daytona 500, Harvick also won the Busch Series season opener at Daytona International Speedway in the Richard Childress Racing No. 21 Chevrolet. center_img Driving for Childress, Harvick won last year’s Busch Series championship – in dominating fashion – but has decided not to race the entire Busch Series schedule this year. He is splitting his time in the Busch Series between his own Kevin Harvick Inc. car and the one for Richard Childress Racing. For the California Speedway Busch Series race, Harvick will be in his own team’s No. 33 Chevrolet Monte Carlo. Tony Stewart drove the No. 33 Chevy to an eighth-place finish in the Daytona race. This is the first of eight Busch Series races Harvick plans to run in his own No. 33 entry. Harvick will also be racing one of his own trucks, the No. 2 Chevrolet Silverado, in the Truck Series race. “I am doing four races in a KHI truck this year,” Harvick said. “Clint (Bowyer) will drive in four truck races for me this year and Cale Gale will drive in three more.” With successful teams in both the Busch and Truck Series, Harvick said he and his wife, DeLana, are not entertaining any desire to move into the Cup. “We don’t have any plans right now,” Harvick said. “DeLana and I are really trying to get our arms around what we do need to do, don’t need to do, in the Busch and Truck Series, really try to focus on that.” Seeing his Cup boss run his three-car team, Harvick said he has a good understanding of how much effort and commitment it takes to run a Cup team. “We can still enjoy being the driver and being a team owner with the Busch and Truck,” Harvick said, “where I don’t think we could do both if we owned the Cup car.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

South Africa celebrates Arbor Week

first_img3 September 2012 The Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries and Northern Cape Agriculture MEC Norman Shushu launched South Africa’s Arbor Week on Saturday by planting fruit trees, establishing vegetable gardens and distributing seed packs and seedlings to local communities. Shushu visited a communal organic vegetable garden in Platfontein outside Kimberley, where he planted vegetables which will assist in alleviating poverty and contributing towards food security in the area. Two hundred households within the Xun and Khwen communities were also given vegetable seed packs and seedlings.Backyard gardens ‘can beat poverty’ Shushu said the establishment of vegetable gardens would help rural communities produce food in their own backyard gardens and thereby fight soaring food prices. “It is less expensive for communities to produce their own food through backyard gardens, as this can help to fight the current high food prices. Most importantly, we also want our people to understand the role that trees play in our environment and the role they play in our lives,” he said. At Galeshewe stadium outside Kimberley, Shushu participated in the planting of 20 olive trees before addressing the main Arbor Week launch event. About 2 000 more fruit trees were planted and distributed in the Sol Plaatjie Municipality. “The destruction of the environment is leading to the destruction of humanity, so if we are to have a sustainable future, it means we must look after our trees, our forests and our environment,” Shushu said. “Without the protection of the environment, there is no future, that’s why all of us are encouraged to join government and our partners to ensure that we make our cities and townships green.”Arbor City Awards Another highlight of the launch of Arbor Week was the Arbor City Awards, introduced to promote the greening of cities and towns in the 283 local and eight metropolitan municipalities across South Africa. The award is given to cities and towns that “go the extra mile” to green the areas under their jurisdiction The Khara Hais local municipality, which governs the town of Upington in the Northern Cape, won the local municipal category, while the City of Johannesburg won in the metropolitan category. Both the City of Johannesburg and Khara Hais received a R300 000 cash prize, trophy and certificate.‘Our Forests – Our Future’ Arbor Day was first celebrated by South Africa in 1983. The day has since been extended from Arbor Day to National Arbor Week, held in the first week of September. The theme for this year’s campaign is “Our Forests – Our Future”. It affords the government, the private sector, non-governmental and community-based organisations and the public to be involved in greening their communities. Greening refers to an integrated approach to the planting, care and management of all vegetation in urban and rural areas, to secure multiple benefits for communities. In the South African context, greening takes place in towns, townships and informal settlements specifically because in the past these areas were disadvantaged in terms of planning for parks as well as tree planting in streets and open spaces. The government and its partners will use National Arbor Week to undertake a major national awareness programme that will bring attention to the value of trees, especially in the many disadvantaged communities who often live in barren and water-stressed areas. Trees play a significant role in social and economic development, poverty alleviation and job creation. Planting gardens and fruit trees may also improve access to nutritious food, encourage healthy diet choices and play a significant role in household food security when integrated with other programmes.
