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!

Jersey Cares Coat Drive

We will be collecting coats to support this drive through January 2, 2022.

All donations of gently used or new coats may be placed in the collection box located in Fellowship Hall.

For 25 years, The Jersey Cares Coat Drive has mobilized the collection and distribution of thousands of "gently used" winter coats to men, women, children, and infants in need. Last year, Jersey Cares collected
and distributed more than 20,000 coats throughout the state of New Jersey.

Open Door Christmas

We are collecting winter hats and mittens/gloves for Open Door's Holiday Gift Giving program.
Please take a tag from the Christmas Tree in Fellowship Hall (each tag is marked with the age and sex of a child). Bring in your hats and gloves with the tag attached by Sunday, December 5th. You may "decorate" the tree with your gifts.
Open Door will distribute all the gifts from our church the week of December 5th.

Open Door Thanksgiving

Open Door food pantry is collecting food for Thanksgiving, looking to provide for over 500 families.

UPDATE: We donated 20 turkeys and hams along with donations of other Thanksgiving meal staples. Thank you for making a difference in our community!

EHAP Overnight Program

Starting in December, in partnership with EHAP (Emergency Housing and Advocacy Program), we will be hosting men facing homelessness every Wednesday evening through March. We need volunteers to provide dinner and hospitality. We also have other roles and volunteer jobs to help keep the program running smoothly. If you are interested in helping or learning more about volunteering, please submit your name and contact to the church office.

Open Door Food Pantry

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.

Emergency Housing and Advocacy Program

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.

United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR)

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.
