Virtual Easter Pageant

The CBS, Camel Broadcasting Network, is back!

Churches are invited to make it their own to fit their particular setting. Fun, informative, and easy to produce.

CASA Gift Card Drive

Last year more than 1,500 children were placed in foster care in Essex County alone. These children, ranging in age from birth to 21 years old, were removed from their homes as a result of abuse, abandonment or neglect. CASA of Essex County (Court Appointed Special Advocates for Children) promotes the welfare of these children by providing a safety net of support, advocacy and mentorship. One of the areas where there is a great need of support is amongst the youth ages 16+. At this age, they are often learning to live on their own.

To address this need, the Community Ministries Team is partnering with CASA Essex County to sponsor a gift card drive for foster youth in our local area. Gift cards would help fill the gaps to purchase necessities such as food, clothing and personal items. 

Click here to contribute to this cause. (Checks may also be mailed to the Presbytery Office - please email to let us know to expect the donation.)
Disability Advocates Sought
