Calvary Lutheran to Install Jaye Newbold as Associate

Calvary Lutheran Church will install Jaye S. Newbold as an Associate in Ministry on Sunday, September 21, at the 11 a.m. worship service. The church is located at 108 Eastman Street, in Cranford.

The public is invited to the service and to meet Mrs. Newbold at a reception following the service in the lounge of the Education Building.

Mrs. Newbold is certified as an Associate in Ministry by the New Jersey Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). As a staff member at Calvary, her duties will include directing the music program and helping to develop the Christian education and youth programs.

Although not ordained clergy, Associates in Ministry have completed educational studies and training to prepare for a career in the church using their professional skills, according to a church spokesman. This position is a new one at Calvary Lutheran.

Mrs. Newbold has served as a church musician for 37 years in positions in New York and New Jersey. Most recently she was Director of Music for 13 years at St. Luke Lutheran Church in Washington.

She holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Special Education from Syracuse University and a Bachelor of Music Degree from Westminster Choir College in Princeton.

She has been part of the ELCA’s Conference on Evangelism and Worship, as well as the New Jersey Synod’s Worship and Arts Committee and the Worship Leaders’ Network.

Calvary Lutheran Church is a member congregation of the ELCA, serving the Cranford-Westfield area and surrounding communities for 69 years this month.
