About Sabbath House Sabbath House is a diverse and welcoming community that brings spiritual practices together with actions that bring peace and hope into the world.
We offer a variety of programs that include arts and crafts (collage, writing, art and visio divina); spiritual practices (individual and group spiritual direction, Sabbath keeping, dreams); spiritual activism - conversations on topics such as racism, food and faith, and particular cultural and ethnic groups; overnight retreats; and gardening. To register, please email us or fill out the contact form on this page.
We are located in the historic manse on the grounds of Plumsted Presbyterian Church, 8 Front Street, New Egypt, NJ.
The New Worshiping Community at Sabbath House is for all who want to till and keep the Earth and join us in caring for those Jesus called "the least of these."
The Sabbath House Gardens include a Giving Garden where we grow organic vegetables for local food pantries; the Plumsted Community Garden (which offers a few plots for local residents); a Rain Garden (a gift from Jacksonville Presbyterian Church); and perennial gardens.

Thursdays 7 - 8:30 p.m. beginning February 27, 2020 Cost $25 - reservations required Christians often have the head knowledge that we are beloved, but deep in our hearts do we truly believe it? When we encounter Jesus in scripture, we tend to hear Jesus' words with judgment, thinking we cannot be beloved because we will never measure up to God's standards. Join us for a journey alongside Jesus that helps break this false understanding and allows us to discover how deeply beloved we are. Our Lenten journey follows stories of Jesus' experience of God's love. The incarnate Son of God was made fully human, which means that Jesus had to fully mature in strength and wisdom to learn that he was beloved. Just as Jesus learned of his belovedness, we, too, can cultivate the wisdom and knowledge that we are deeply loved. Each week begins with a scripture passage, a weekly devotion, reflection questions, an optional prayer bead experience, and a listening meditation. Be transformed by God's love this Lenten season.
