Special Thanks to Phillipsburg Lowe's Heros

Volunteers from the Phillipsburg Lowes Heros Project were at our church manse recently, and did a beautiful job replacing the rotted front porch. They also installed a much-needed railing on the basement stairs, fixed some spout problems, and donated both a snowblower and small lawnmower - all much needed and appreciated. Click here to read more and see the slide show.

As many know, our manse houses not only our church office, but also serves as the Warren County Family Promise / Interfaith Hospitality Day Center. Families who have lost their homes are helped to get back on their feet, and families at risk are helped in avoiding loss of their homes. In the last year alone, this ministry helped 96 households - a total of 508 individuals, including many children.

This and other gifts are especially significant right now, as the same economic issues that are putting families at risk are also impacting the donations that are counted on to keep Family Promise in open. Find out more about this amazing ministry, and about Club 247, one of many ways to help.
