Adventist World Radio – Annual Offering

Wisam’s Muslim family tried to stone him when he became an Adventist. Then his cousin tried to stab him after he became a pastor – but a true miracle took place! Don’t miss the rest of the story!

God is using Adventist World Radio’s many broadcasts and platforms to bypass harsh governments and hostile cultures, and beam the love of Jesus directly into homes and hearts. We invite you to partner with AWR in this vital ministry! You can contribute to our annual offering by giving through your church’s Adventist Giving website, directly at awr.org, or by calling (800)337-4297

Tranquility Church service is cancelled for March 14

With the increased spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) in NJ, each of us must take precautionary measures for the peace of mind and continued health of the Tranquility Church community as well as our guests.

The leadership of Tranquility Church are taking prudent steps to keep us and our community healthy. Tranquility Adventist Church worship services, including all Sabbath School classes, have been cancelled for March 14.

This decision is made out of faithfulness, not fear. We seek to be faithful in lessening the spread of the coronavirus and its impact on those most at risk. We know social distancing can have a positive impact, lessening the spread, and we are convicted to be responsible citizens in our community.

Following the CDC and local health officials recommendations, small group gatherings (less than 25 in attendance) in homes are an option for those who feel comfortable. We encourage everyone to take advantage of this time to connect with each other in meaningful ways. Call friends that you know will miss our weekly fellowship the most. Enjoy Sabbath family time, and take advantage of one of the many excellent websites and online sermons.

Please share word of this with who you may know that do not frequent social media, have access to email, or have limited communication in other ways.

“May the Lord watch between you and me when we are absent one from another.” Genesis 31:49

Pack a Shoebox by November 23

Pack a shoebox for Operation Christmas Child and help spread the Gospel around the world!

What: A small shoebox can have a big impact! What goes into the box is fun, but what comes out of it is eternal. Be a part of changing children’s lives all over the world in Jesus’ name through the power of a simple gift with Operation Christmas Child. If you’d like an empty box to pack, please see Toni Langenfeld.

When & Where: Drop your box off in the foyer by Nov 23.

How: 

  1. Find a Shoebox: Start with an average-size cardboard or plastic shoebox. If you want to wrap it, cover the box and lid separately.
  2. Girl or Boy? Decide whether you will pack a box for a girl or a boy, and the age category: 2–4, 5–9, or 10–14.
  3. Fill with Gifts: Select a medium to large “wow” item such as a soccer ball with pump or stuffed animal, then fill with other fun toys, hygiene items, and school supplies.
  4. Pray: Most importantly, pray for the child who will receive your gift. You can also include a personal note and photo.
  5. Follow Your Box Labels: Donate $9 online and receive a tracking label to follow your box and discover the destination of your shoebox gift.
