Christmas Offering – Update

For our Christmas Offering on December 23 we have received a total of $1,209. The donations will go towards a local church in Puerto Rico. Rosa Serrano will be so kind to take these funds back to PR and work with the local pastors to ensure they are used to support our brothers and sisters in need there.

Thank you for your generosity and above all thanks be to God for letting us share our blessings!

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!
