NJ Camp Meeting – June 23

Just a quick reminder that there will be no service in Tranquility Church tomorrow. We look forward to spending the day with you at camp meeting, worshipping with our brothers and sisters from the New Jersey Conference. Our choir will have a special appearance during the afternoon program that you don’t want to miss!

Daniel Masaka was so kind to drop off a few goodies for the church. There is some bread, some cereal, and lots of granola and healthy snacks. We invite to to stop by after the morning service and take some treats home! We will keep the church open during lunch time for you.

Our New Pastor

The NJ Conference leadership will be re-districting NJ churches. As of January 1, we will again be in one district with Hackettstown and Phillipsburg.

We will be sharing their current pastor, Stephen Lee. We are excited to have Pastor Lee and his family join the Tranquility Church family!
