GIFTS FOR THE HOMELESS

It’s that ‘time of year’ when we think about the Gift we received from God – ‘The Birth of His Son”. 

Let’s take this time to think about those that are less fortunate, many without homes.  Will you share with others by donating Gift Cards, Socks or Mittens? 

Please indicate your gift choice and return in the offertory basket:

Gift Card  -  Cash  -  Check 

 Socks  -  Mittens/Gloves (a receptacle will be located in the Nave)

Jersey Shore Rescue Mission

Each night, a multitude of people are homeless in Asbury Park. You can change that!  Each day Jersey Shore Rescue Mission welcomes people who are homeless, poor and struggling with addiction.  Each year, thousands of lives are transformed here through God’s love and the generous support of our Jersey Shore Community. 

Salvation Army

The Salvation Army is an integral part of the Christian Church, although distinctive in government and practice. The Army's doctrine follows the mainstream of Christian belief and its articles of faith emphasize God's saving purposes.

Fulfill

The Food Bank of Monmouth & Ocean Counties is now Fulfill. They changed their name, because they’re doing more than ever to change lives in our communities for the better.  It reflects their commitment to fulfill more of the needs of our neighbors and win the battle against hunger. It reflects their comprehensive approach that goes beyond providing food and helps those in need get to a place where they can get back on their feet for good, providing the resources people need to become self-sufficient.

God's Gifts are for use in His Service

The gifts we have received are not ours alone. God gave them to us for the purpose of serving Him and serving other people.

Will you share your talent, or the special gift God has  given you?  There is a need for members for various ministries.  Please give your name to Pastor Michael.

Hope

Are We There Yet?

In any journey of length, there will come times when questions arise. A question such as, “Are we there yet?” is only one possibility. Other questions such as, “Should we turn around?” or “Do we really want to make this journey?” or even “Are we making progress?” may occur.

Joy

Are We There Yet?

The third Sunday of Advent is called “Gaudete” Sunday. Each Sunday in the season of Advent is supposed to be feast day, a celebration, but this week is especially so. The third week of Advent is a time of joy, a time of being thankful for all that has been given—the promise of the Savior who has come, who is present, and who promises a return.

Trust

Are We There Yet?

Perhaps you, too, have become suspicious of your GPS. You’re following the directions to a destination where you have never been. Then you’re directed to make a turn that doesn’t feel right. You’re in an area of the city that doesn’t look right. The directions keep coming, but they don’t seem to be on the right path.
