As a church family, we live our lives in gratitude for the grace that God has shown us.  This is central to who we are as a community; everything we do is done from a place of gratitude.  We are grateful for God's goodness and so we gather to worship.  We are grateful for the gifts God has given us and so we share what we can by giving back to our community through community meals, our food pantry, and our tutoring program.

We are also grateful for the people in our lives--those who have touched our lives in the past and those who continue to touch our lives today.  One of the ways we seek to honor and remember them is through our giving, helping our church to continue its mission in the South River community.  As a way of testifying to the great cloud of witnesses that surrounds us, we list those contributions here.

One of the ways we have traditionally celebrated Easter Sunday is by filling our sanctuary with flowers.  Due to COVID-19, we will not be meeting in person that Sunday for worship, but have decided to bring the spirit of Easter flowers to our community.  Instead of lilies to adorn the church, we will be using Easter flower contributions to purchase flowers to beautify the outside of the church, proclaiming the new life and hope of Easter that lives even when we cannot celebrate together.  It is our hope that this will bring joy to those who pass by our church in these difficult days.

If you are interested in contributing in honor or memory of a loved one, please send your donation to the church at 40 Thomas Street, South River, NJ 08882, indicating the project you are interested in donating towards, and the name of those you would like to honor or remember.
