Missions

Love one another as I have loved you

John 13:34

As a community church, we seek to help meet the needs of our neighbors by partnering with local nonprofits to help those who are hungry, facing homelessness, or in need of a friend. We are supporters of Open Door food pantry, The Emergency Housing and Advocacy Program (EHAP), The Maker's Place in Trenton, NJ, and the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR). We also partner with local healthcare facilities and area nursing homes to encourage residents, patients and healthcare workers. We truly seek to be the hands of feet of Jesus Christ to our community!

CWS CROP Hunger Walk

Sunday, October 17 at 12:30 pm
Meet at the Visitor Center at Monmouth Battlefield State Park
 
Sign up to be a walker/fundraiser and help us raise money to end hunger around the world and in our local community! All funds go to support CWS and their work to alleviate hunger and suffering around the world. A portion of the funds also come back to our local community and support the Open Door food pantry.

You can sign up and donate using the link below. 

Afghan Refugee Assistance

Thank you for your donations to the Afghan refugees here in New Jersey. The items we collected were delivered to St. Roberts on Thursday, September 16. Although we have stopped collecting physical items at the church, you can still purchase items for the refugees on Amazon. Great for online shoppers and those who weren't able to bring things in this week. The link to the wish list is below.


Area Nursing Home Collection

Looking for a way to help brighten the day of someone in a local Nursing Home? We will be collecting mini candy bars for residents of area nursing homes until October 24. If you would like to contribute, a collection box will be in fellowship hall for your convenience. We will be putting goody bags together the last week of October. If you can help or have any questions, please contact the church office.

UMCOR Flood Buckets

We are collecting items for Flood Buckets to help with relief efforts after Hurricane Ida. Donations will be collected in the Fellowship Hall donation area. You will find the list of items posted below. Items need to be in by Sunday, October 17th.

On October 17th, we will fill the buckets after service! Volunteers are needed to pack the buckets. A volunteer sign-up sheet can be found in Fellowship Hall or contact the church office.

Throughout the year, we collect nonperishable food items for Open Door, our local food pantry. Bring your donations to the church on Sunday morning or during the week and drop off in our fellowship hall.

During the winter months, we host men in the EHAP overnight program once a week in our church building. If you would like to help provide hospitality for this program, please contact the church office to learn more.

The Maker's Place

The Maker's Place serves the community of Trenton, working to lower child mortality rates in the city by providing aid to families in need. We host diaper drives and accept donations of diapers for The Maker's Place.

UMCOR is the disaster relief organization of the United Methodist Church. When hurricanes and other natural disasters devastate communities, UMCOR helps them rebuild. We support UMCOR by packing flood buckets and though monetary donations.
