Deuteronomy 6:4-9 NRSV
Hear, O Israel: The Lord is our God, the Lord alone. 5 You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your might. 6 Keep these words that I am commanding you today in your heart. 7 Recite them to your children and talk about them when you are at home and when you are away, when you lie down and when you rise. 8 Bind them as a sign on your hand, fix them as an emblem on your forehead, 9 and write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.

Food Pantry

For the first time in sixteen months, the Food Pantry moved back inside on 7/17/2021. Because of your support, during the sixteen month period of modified service due to the COVID pandemic, we were able to meet the needs of 485 families with 2,258 bags of food, $12,690 of ShopRite gift cards and 140 canned hams. We also shared prayer with every car and family that wend through the car wash style food pantry

As we move back inside, with COVID precautions, our start-up has been bare bones. Pre-COVID we had a parish nurse on site, children's ministry, modified breakfast, counselors that prayed with our clients, shared life experiences and the gospel, registration personnel and volunteers that packed bags of food and delivered the bags to the client's cars. At this point we are in the process of looking for volunteers to help with this very worthwhile outreach to our community's less fortunate. Please join us on the third Saturday of the month to see what we do and where you could join this ministry.

Update from Matt's Stocking
To the Businesses, Churches, Families, Friends and Individual Supporters of Matt’s Stocking,

With much prayer and thought, our family has decided that we will no longer be continuing Matt's Stocking.
For the past 24 years, it has been a privilege to serve alongside you to love and support families in our community during the Christmas season. God provided a beautiful mission for our family and friends out of the loss of Matt and turned it into a huge blessing for those who supported and those who received. We pray that the . . . click here to read the full letter.
