Our mission is to do as much good as we can. We reach out to those in need through various programs. Our congregation supports all our efforts to meet the needs of those in our community who need emergency food, help at the holidays, Christmas gifts for children and/or a warm coat in winter.
ANNUAL COAT DRIVE
Each year in October, Outreach and the Sunbeam Pre-School have a coat drive. We collect gently used coats and jackets. We need pre-teen, teen and adult (men and women) jackets and coats. The coats will be going to Anchor House Children’s Shelter and Family Outreach Programs in Trenton and the Men’s shelter in Lakewood. The coat drive will run from Sunday, Oct. 3 until Friday, Oct. 22, 2021.
We keep a small supply of emergency non-perishable food items for anyone in need. At the present time we need pasta sauce, cheerios, corn flakes, canned green beans, carrots, corn, Jello, coffee, tomato soup, grape jelly, mustard, mayonnaise, canola oil, cake mix, and pancake syrup. All contributions are appreciated. Anyone in need please call the church office.
GRIEF SHARE PROGRAM
This 13- week program is a Bible-based program with direction and purpose and that is to comfort and support those who have lost loved ones as they walk through the journey of grief. It is a place where people find healing and hope. Our next program starts October 29, 2021 online on Zoom. Day and Time: Fridays from 6:30 – 8:00 pm.
