Blind Center of the Jersey Cape
Our church hosts the Blind Center on Tuesday and Thursday of each week. Volunteers work with members by assisting with activities and meals. If you have a talent or skill to share with the group, you are encouraged to contact the Director.
 
Church Choirs
If you enjoy music and would like to sing or ring bells, come out and be part of our bell choir and/or chancel choir. You don't have to read music., just come prepared to sing God's praise. Our choirs share their musical gifts during worship all year around.

Family Promise
Quarterly we volunteer our support to the county-wide program that offers housing, meals, and support to homeless children and their families. You can help by preparing and serving a meal, visiting with parents, helping children with homework, or staying overnight in the church to help provide a safe and secure environment.
 
Parish Nurse
Our Parish Nurse Ministry provides physical, emotional and spiritual support to those in need. our nurses are also available for routine questions and they provide medical resources and referrals. If you are a nurse who would like to work with this ministry, please contact the Pastor.
Prayer Shawl
If you like to knit and/or crochet (or if you would like to learn), join us in our Prayer Shawl/Blanket ministry. Small blankets are distributed to shut-ins, to new babies, and to those who are hospitalized or grieving. During the summer, the group meets on Thursday mornings at 10:00 a.m. During the rest of the year, our knitters and crocheters work from home.
 
Prayer Box
People are invited to submit prayer requests. The Prayer Box is located at the front steps of the church.
