Churches within GNJ are doing outstanding work.
Sharing resources through the connection makes us stronger. Greater New Jersey churches are creating high quality materials to help make disciples of Christ for the transformation of the world. These examples are meant to be shared as ideas, resources and assist in guiding your work.
Excellence in Graphics and Illustration
Olivia, a confirmand at Denville UMC designed the cover for the upcoming confirmation worship. She was inspired by a great imagination and the art-work of other confirmands in recent years, and came up with this very cool design!
“If you think teens are disinterested in experiential learning about their ever-growing faith in Jesus Christ…. you’re mistaken!” Ed Carll.
Excellence in Print Communication
This booklet was designed using Pages, a software that comes installed with most Apple products. It did not use any outside designers and can be done in any church with no budget at all. Click here to download and view the booklet.
