Social Ministry


Social Ministry is dedicated to serving the needs of our congregation and community. We support organizations that are helping people facing crisis, meeting personal or family needs at a most vulnerable time. We respond with care and compassion, ready to serve and love our neighbor.


We believe that Christ has freed us to embrace and care for people of all ages, ethnicity, religion, and financial status. We are called to do God’s work in this very complex world. The services we provide are as diverse as the needs of the people and communities that we serve.


Social Ministry is ready to respond and do God’s work, whether it be providing temporary housing and food for the homeless through Family Promise, assisting individuals and families with the Furniture Bank/Kitchen and Linen Brigade, supporting the Manasquan Food Pantry, or assisting in a disaster response.
