LOVING OUR NEIGHBORS
EACH SUNDAY during our Call to Freedom, we are reminded that we are meant to serve one another, for all of God's law can be summed up in one word in the statement, "LOVE your neighbor."
As a congregation, we voted on which way we wanted to support "the least of these" by ecouraging their creativity and empowerment, listening and following their lead and direction.
We chose to support in particular: The Hungry Community and Children Struggling with Illness
The Community Kitchen
What is a community kitchen? It is an eating experience open to the whole community, where those who come are given a beautiful meal with options and all the hospitality we can offer. There are volunteer greeters, waiters, and kitchen staff who serve a menu to rich and poor alike. Oftentimes, those who are served sign up to become volunteers at another meal. Hospitality training is included for the volunteers. We recruit helping hands from the whole Tri-Boro community. If you would like to reserve a spot at our next meal or volunteer, call the church office at 201.391.4066 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tri Boro Food Pantry
For more than 18 years, our church has housed the Tri-Borough Food Pantry. As members of the newly formed board, alongside other local churches, we are now aiming to expand the board to include other community members and folks serviced by the pantry.
Want to get involved? We’d love that, too! Call (201) 573-9083 or drop by the church to say hello.
We are still in the listening and learning stage with this community. We have finished reading and reflecting on the 2016 Surgeon General's Report and the book Unbroken Brain, as well as other resources.
A working group from Conversation Cafe worked on an information program to share with the congregation during Lent. You can access the info by clicking below.
Youth & Addiction
We also support Bergen's Promise,
which PROVIDES FREE CARE MANAGEMENT SERVICES and COORDINATES COMMUNITY BASED RESOURCES
for youth ages 5 - 21 with mental and/or behavioral health challenges, substance abuse issues, developmental disabilities. For more info, visit their website by clicking below.
Every December we make sure each resident of the Reformed Church Home gets a Christmas Gift.
Want to donate a gift?
Stop by the church office in December.
