Methodist Connection Partners Relay with Printer

July 5, 2017 | | GNJ News

WILLIAMSTOWN – From October to May, on the first Saturday of the month, Cross Keys UMC in Williamstown hosts a Variety Breakfast to connect the church and the community. John Dreisbach is one of three omelet makers who consistently work the event and takes pride in his role cooking quality foods.

As a church member for the last 15 years, Dreisbach served as Chairperson of the Pastor Parish Relations (PPR), and a member of the Finance Committee and Administrative Council. He’s currently a member-at-large on Council and serves as a member of the Trustees and Men’s Group. His two adult sons, Luke and Mike, have participated in the church’s Red Bird Mission in Kentucky and his family has been involved with Sandy relief efforts through A Future With Hope. He’s also Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Evergreen Printing Company in Bellmawr and a faithful reader of The Relay.

“It occurred to me that it would be a good idea to offer and make available our services at Evergreen,” said Dreisbach.

Relay readers may have noticed a sturdier, crisper, brighter and more colorful newspaper since operations were moved to Evergreen earlier this spring. The upgrade has boosted quality, color and efficiency while also saving significant costs; upwards of $8,000 annually.

Just outside Philadelphia in suburban South Jersey, Evergreen prints daily, weekly, and monthly publications for regional, national, and international publishers including clients like POLITICO, The Columbia University Review and The Financial Times of London.

Recently, Evergreen was selected as a winner in the 2017 Neographics Power of Print Awards by the Printing Industries of America and Graphic Arts Association. The company was recognized with four “best of category” awards for heatset and cold web publication print quality.

“We’re proud of our quality and each employee’s contribution in producing quality work,” said Evergreen President, Carmen Pinto.

Dreisbach is also proud to take on The Relay’s print job with great care, as he sees the paper as an extension of his greater church family.

“As a church family – we are fortunate to have many members that have been a part of Cross Keys for a lifetime,” said Dreisbach. “And with new faces, the personality of our church is inviting, providing a desire to be a part of the spiritual feeling and mission that the Lord provides as we serve God through each other.”

For Dreisbach and the GNJ Communications Team, keeping The Relay in the connection helps further that service.
