Help Pack Operation Christmas Child Boxes
Road Trip ~ November 20th
On November 20, 2018 we have the opportunity to travel to Columbia Maryland to help volunteer with Operation Christmas Child at the processing center. Millions of shoeboxes are collected during National Collection Week. Before these special gifts can bring hope and joy to children around the world, each box has to be carefully inspected and made ready for overseas shipment by volunteers like you. You can help prepare shoeboxes for delivery by volunteering at Columbia Md. processing center. About 80,000 volunteers serve annually at our processing centers. This is open to anyone ages 16 and older.
We will leave Millville at 7 AM and return at approximately 7 PM.
Lunch can be purchased through Chick-fil-A that day at the center. If you are interested in participating in this event please contact Pastor Jack 856-332-7067. 


Extravagant Generosity

It's no secret, people long for a life of meaning, a life that matters for something more than their own personal comfort and temporary success. Yet, as J.D. Greer has put it, there are few lies that cripple the mission of the church more than the belief that only a select few are called to ministry. This six-week series is designed to unlock the amazing truth that every child of God was Made for Mission. The Scripture in this series will help us see what it means to surrender our lives to the radical calling of Jesus Christ, who whispers to every heart, “Follow me.” One thing this series will make clear to our church is that that no matter where you are in life, whatever career path you have chosen, whatever gifts you think you have (or don’t have), God has made each of us unique and He has called us to follow Him.


We are in the process of designing a new website. All of the announcements will be posted on this page until the site is complete. No other links on this present site will be active. CHECK BACK FOR THE NEW SITE.
