These ministries include opportunities for all ages to learn and to reach out to the community and beyond: Faithful Friday connects to local school children; Christmas in July and Christmas Cookie Sales benefiting families in Guatemala, the Atlantic City Rescue Mission, a prayer shawl ministry and more.
