SERVICE PROJECT 2016 This year's Advent/Christmas Service Project is a Diaper Drive in support of the Hunterdon Diaper Bank. The Hunterdon Diaper Bank is run in partnership with United Way of Hunterdon County and NORWESCAP Food Bank to distribute diapers, wipes, ointments, and adult incontinence products to struggling parents and caregivers of infants, toddlers, special needs children, disabled youth and the elderly who cannot afford the products they need.
Believe it or not, food stamps do not cover diapers. Monetary donations are also gratefully accepted by the Hunterdon Diaper Bank. Everything collected stays in Hunterdon County. Collection boxes will be placed in the narthex from November 20 through December 11. Any questions, contact Judy at firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you for your support!!

Over the past several years we've been fortunate to be able to work with a variety of community minded service groups within our area. Groups such as the Flemington Area Food Pantry & The Good News Home for Women of Flemington NJ are all worth-while causes.
Pictured abve are members of Living Waters Lutheran Church and the Flemington Jewish Community Center along with staff and friends of the food pantry just prior to the Annual Food Pantry Walk, held each year to raise funds and awareness about their services.
On a monthly basis, we will be collecting food for the Flemington Food Pantry. We will collect food on the third and fourth Sundays, and then deliver the food to the pantry. The food pantry currently needs cereal, salad dressings, 100% juice, cake mix & frosting, cooking oil, tea & coffee, baby food-diapers-formula, laundry & dish detergent, shampoo, toilet paper and paper products. For additional information call Madelyn at the Pantry 782-8457.
