Communion Offereing

The communion offering for September is for AIR (Attitudes in Reverse). AIR's mission is to create a community of understanding, kindness, and empathy through mental health education and awareness. AIR offers many programs that, when combined, remind students throughout the year that there are many people, perhaps their friends, family members, or classmates, who may be living each day with mental health disorders.

We must always be kind - no matter what people's differences are. We must understand that NO ONE CHOOSES to have a mental health disorder.

Mission Projects

Our mission projects form the heartbeat of our congregation's commitment to positive change. Guided by our unwavering faith and shared values, we embark on a diverse range of mission projects that extend a helping hand to those in need.

From local initiatives addressing homelessness and hunger to global endeavors supporting education and healthcare in underserved areas, we unite in faith to create meaningful impact. These mission projects not only reflect our deep-rooted desire to make a meaningful impact but also serve as a powerful testament to the love and unity that define our faith and spiritual journey.

Through collective action and heartfelt service, we strive to embody the teachings of Jesus with compassion and empathy, leaving a lasting mark of hope and transformation wherever our mission takes us.

Puppies Behind Bars

The Sunday School and Missions has chosen Puppies Behind Bars as our Lenten project. This benefits dogs from shelters incarcerated individuals and the people who receive the dogs after training. It's all about the dogs and a network of incredible people.

Twenty-five years ago, when Puppies Behind Bars was still an unnamed dream, its founder, Gloria Gilbert Stoga, could not have imagined the impact it would have across America. Or that it would pivot again and again in response to seismic changes in the world-terrorist attacks, wars, and pandemics all while remaining true to its core principles.

Through all the changes, the guiding philosophy of Puppies Behind Bars has been that it is all about the dogs. The incarcerated women and men have been asked to put puppies at the center of their lives and commit to producing the best working dogs in the country. Year after year, dog after dog, they have delivered.

Puppies Behind Bars is ultimately about dogs and people. It's a small organization - the dedicated staff numbers less than fifteen - but it punches above its weight because of the wide variety of stakeholders who are critical to success. To the staff and the incarcerated individuals who train the dogs, add PBB's volunteers, donors, veterinarians, police and military professionals, veterans, friends who go to amazing lengths when problems need to be solved, corrections department officials and officers, and board members.

Food Pantry Needs

We have been blessed to be able to help those in need, including a family of seven. However, we are running low on certain items.

We are in dire need of toilet paper and paper towels. Those items cannot be bought with food stamps.

We are also in need of:
  • pasta
  • individually wrapped snacks
  • pancake mix
  • syrup
  • instant potatoes
All helpful donations will be greatly appreciated.

Worship Band

The church's music ministry wishes to create a new worship experience with music led by a worship band. On every last Sunday of each month, the worship band will play hymns and worship songs to meet the need of the congregation. If you want to be part of the worship band, contact pastor Dale or Alla, our music director.


Pathways is a visioning process to discern God's calling and plan for our church. It will be an opportunity for us to assess our current situation, learn and grow in understanding, and create a plan that will give us the tools to transform lives, the congregation, and our community. For the next 6 to 12 months, we hope to create clarity and focus for our ministry that will bear fruit and sustainable results. The whole church will be doing this work as a team. GNJ has assigned Rev. Gina Yeske, Director of Resourcing of Metro-Highlands Region to work with us throughout the whole process. And thanks to Michele Pache to be the team leader of the Pathways. Please keep this process in your prayers. Thanks to Pathways team members; Michele Pache, Jen Pinnella, Julie Fircha, Laura Wright, Mercy Chang, and Mark Pache. Please keep this process in your prayers.

Pop Tab Collection
The Sunday School would like your help collecting Pop Tabs from aluminum cans to support a program being run by the Ronald McDonald House of New Brunswick and Long Branch. The tabs can be easily removed by twisting them back and forth until they break off. A collection box will be placed in Friendship Hall where you can drop the tabs you save during the week. The collected tabs will be sent to the Ronald McDonald House and then sent to a recycling facility where they are sold by the pound. The money raised will be used to offset the operational expenses of this wonderful charity. Please help us!
