Read the October Relay and share!

This month we are celebrating and nurturing our students of all ages! We are embracing inclusion, diversity and our faith in God! We featured a story on the Journey of Hope plan in an effort to bring you closer to this long-term project to end the sin of racism. We also feature a profile of a member of our extension ministry who was recently named among the 2021 Distinguished Alumni; a piece on the Justice Gardens in Westfield and a piece that highlights this year’s scholarship recipients!

Also included in this issue are our ongoing monthly Bookshelf, stories in your own words in “Tell it on the Mountain,” our next Clergy Family story, a calendar, job postings and a photo contest. As always, we want to hear from you! GNJ churches are transforming the world and making their congregations more fruitful! Check out these stories in the October 2021 issue.

We are working on making the online version even better, so stay tuned! Let us know if you’d like to receive the online version exclusively.
