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

Denville UMC 

 

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.
